I honestly didn’t mean to go such a long time without posting, but it’s obvious I needed a break. When I feel overwhelmed and not terribly organized, it’s hard for me to write about it. I have had such a case of writing block. Not quite writer’s block, but some mental obstacle to sitting down […]

Why does keeping to a routine require so much work? Why is sticking to a schedule so impossible for me? When I’m not at home it is so difficult to keep to our normal routine. My son’s bedtime is all over the place right now. Instead of trying to put him to bed around the […]

I’m currently reading Never Check E-Mail in the Morning. At first, I balked at the idea of not checking my email in the morning. Well, of course I must see if something important came in during the night. Since I’m on the west coast, everyone else has been busy at least an hour or two […]

I almost missed it. I’ve been doing so well with posting this month. And we’re so close to the end. I guess I’ve only had a couple of “I’m posting because I have to” posts – and that’s not too bad. Tomorrow’s going to have to be a catch-up day. Still need to do some […]

We had invited family over, but it appeared that brother-in-law may have to work Thanksgiving. So for a while, it was going to just be the three of us. Then the daughter called and wants to bring her boyfriend. Now we’re up to five. And then bro said he and his wife could make it, […]

… a little better than I have done today. I wrote a post in honor of Veteran’s Day over at my other blog. But I don’t want to repeat the same things here. All I’ve accomplished today is print out a few pages from Organizing Your Way’s Home Management Notebook printables and fill a few […]

Yeah, it was bound to happen at least once this month. I went to a craft party tonight and forgot to post before I left. It sure was fun to find my inner crafting goddess. And to make the mess at someone else’s house. Ha! Had a great time. I promise to do better tomorrow. […]

My days can vary pretty widely. There’s no real set schedule, other than getting up, feeding the boy and starting my work. It’s anyone’s guess after that. I wonder if it would be better to have a strict schedule… naptime at 10 am every day, bedtime at 6:30 pm every night, baths at 6. I […]

I leave on Sunday to go see family. I’m taking my son to see his grandparents. Should be a fun time for all! But the prep is tough sometimes. Two days to go and I need to do some laundry (and we don’t have our own w/d in our condo, which makes planning that much […]

I just bought a momAgenda. It came in the mail yesterday. Woo! I will be looking at it more today and I will definitely write a review once I’ve had a chance to go over it thoroughly. While my other calendar works okay, I’m hoping the separate spaces for kid & other items will help […]
