This sums up for me what a “weekly schedule” – or for a more affectionate term – a “weekly routine” should be. It should be intentional – by nature it’s rigid, but in reality it is flexible.
Mondays – Clean up from the tornado that hit over the weekend!
Tuesdays – Outings and errands
Wednesdays – Cleaning
Thursdays – Grocery Shop
Fridays – Laundry Day
Saturdays – Watch Ohio State Football
For some, organization does not come naturally, I feel that I fall into that category! Now you may say, “no way – you LOVE schedules so you must do this naturally” – but honestly I have read many good books, systems, websites and CD’s to come to this place in life (as my mom and husband can testify – in my younger years, I was apt to over book myself and be completely stressed out – now I accomplish much more but with ease and joy). If you regularly feel overwhelmed by all you have to accomplish in a day, week and month – then I’d suggest you pursue learning the skill of organization.
It may seem like a lot of work to put a routine into place but in the end you will save a lot of time and guess what you get to do with your free time!! Relax and cuddle with your chicks and nuzzle with your hubby. Enjoy the fruit of your labor!
Proverbs 31:28 “Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her; Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”
