After taking the summer off from most of my usual organizational activities (and this blog), complete chaos has ensued in our home, and it is a time to get things back in order. For starters, while we had a few random ingredients laying around the house, we didn't have any real meals or snacks, including in the freezer. I made my first menu plan in over 3 months last week and completed a mini freezer cooking session (ham & cheese pockets and taquitos). It felt like a small step in the right direction, but there is so much more that needs to be done. Now, I just need to keep moving forward with small changes to get everything back the way it was. I just have to keep reminding myself that it is going to take time and I can't overhaul everything the way I want to. Here are my goals for the rest of this week and I will post my progress on them next Wednesday.
- Clean my desk
- Create a weekly schedule for getting homework graded
- Organize our bills
- Sort kids clothes and take outgrown items to the local mission
