I am not ready for April.
I didn’t take into account that it would be April.
You see, this past week or so I have been just getting by. I have been hanging on, just trying to make it to the end of term. Just washing enough clothes to get me through until the Digital Parents Conference. Just juggling children until the Bloggers BBQ. I’ve been planning and organising, and hanging on until we got to this one big weekend.
I know so because this morning I found 16 acorns in the bottom of my washing machine.
I also know that I fed my children apples and mars bar slice for breakfast because that was all we had in the house. And… ahem… I am wearing a pair of my husbands undies.
I’ve got to stop doing this.
I’ve got to stop living for a single day or event and forgetting to take into account what will come after. I have to get my act together.
So this is it, this is the time when I get my act together. This is me doing my own little version of Modern Parents Messy Kids – Organise your Entire Life.
I’ve set myself a handful of goals…
1. Declutter, clean and tidy the whole house before the end of the school holidays.
2. Use a version of this file folder system to organise paper work and important dates
3. Get back on top of meal planning and grocery shopping.
4. Do some blog housework.
I am not fooling myself… if I get half that done in the next two weeks I’ll be happy. But I am also not going to let myself slip back into ‘getting by’ mode… so what is not done now will be done later.
What about you?
Am I the only one who lives for a single day forgetting what comes after?
Is anyone else feeling the urge for an Autumn Purge?
Am I the only one with acorns in my washing machine?
