Full time mommy by day. Freelance writer by night. Superhero on the weekends.
You're office looks great! Despite wanting to go spend the day with friends (since they were off for Labor Day), I stayed home and organized some closets and drawers. I'm catching up to you in MomsTown. Here's what I've accomplished, or not, from week two.1. I've had to say "no" a lot with my new position at work.2. I haven't been saying my mantra but I do still remember what it is, which is a step in the right direction.3. "M" is such a supportive and understanding husband that I rarely feel frustrated and never feel underappreciated.4. Thank God.5. Can't make that step yet. "M" and I go through too much to save a penny, so to throw away perfectly good food is a waste. We have been grilling lean meats and veggies almost every night since he got his gas grill for Father's Day. That's got to count for something. :)6. I boxed up all of the maternity clothes that for some reason have been taking up far too much space in two of my closets. I also have a pair of maternity sweats that I still wear from time to time, and those too have been banished.7. Next week. Yeah! Do highlights cover the gray?8. Working a few hours a week has forced me to dress nice for the sake of looking professional. It's a good balance from jeans and tees during the week.9. Where do I begin?10. I've spent the past 3 Saturdays with my best girl friends - good times. :)
Week 3:1. I need to find a good organizer. Any suggestions.2. My hot iron needs to be making it to the gym. I have a membership to Curves. It's one half hour for goodness sakes. I should have no excuses.3. Schedule for life? What a great idea. You would think as a former teacher and a current administrator that I would know how to create and stick to a schedule. Isn't flying by the seat of your pants a schedule somewhere?4. I cleaned our office about a month ago, and it has stayed that way...amazing.5. I have a hard enough time taking out my contacts every night, but I'm determined to try this.6. Too bad "G" is only 3 months old. The help I enlist her with is doing tummy time while I use the restroom. :)7. My spice rack.
Okay, you are totally on top of it! I am so impressed! I totally skipped the step about cleaning out the pantry too. I hate to just toss stuff out. I keep telling myself that if I eat some of the stuff in there that isn't all that great for me, I can make it up by doing some active thing. (We'll see how it goes) :)It is so hard to keep up with everything. I'm struggling with that "night before" routine. Sometimes just feeding everyone, sort of cleaning it up, getting baths, a story, prayers and bedtimes seems like a giant task! It's a lot harder when Husband works late.It's funny that you mention your spice rack. I have a little cabinet that I have all my spices in and lots of other odds and ends. There is even some medicine in there. That is something I have to work on too. I'm thinking taking pictures of all of this may keep me accountable.
