I think this is absolutely lovely. LOVELY. I need to do this in our family.

Your schedule sounds brilliant, even if it is demanding. I am inspired by your diligence. I'm sure I'm not the only one who will be thrilled when we get to hear from you more often on your blog, but just keep doing what you need to do for your family. We'll still be here when you find your groove.


I love your schedule! You seem so organized, I need that, could you send it my way?
I know what you mean about blogging. I have come to enjoy my blogging better when I am not stressed out about it. I blog when I feel led to blog! I used to fret over what I was gonna blog about everyday. Now I just blog when I wanna. Easy fix!
Enjoy life!


As long as you come check back in every once in awhile. And just so you know, I sat spellbound through your post. Different ways to get organized kind of revs up my engines to do it around here! Go Michelle!!! :D

but I just want to say that my ironing pile is completely empty at the moment and no one has had to go pilfering through the sock basket in weeks.
I gauge my week's succss by whether or not my children have to dig through the pile on the couch or retrieve their folded-but-not-yet-put-away clothing on the chairs by the door.

I've tried and loved your current set-up. Why am I not doing it now? Um ... b/c I found the snooze button.

Bad, bad Heather.


Wow, this is just what I needed to read today - amazing how God does that! I have 4 kids (23 mo, 4,6,8) and do daycare for a 22 month old. This morning I had 2 Toilet Babies of my own - splashing, drenched, and full of pure JOY at their partnership in crime. But that's not really why I wanted to comment. I totally struggle with keeping it all together with the laundry, cooking meals, routine, etc. Your ideas are fabulous and I really feel the call to get some serious organization going for my family's sanity and so I can be more intentional about parenting. THANK YOU for sharing, I'm thrilled to come across your blog. :)

I'm totally with you. Blogging is definitely taking back seat to life around here. If I just didn't have to sleep....

You've been missed, but I understand! I actually find that carrying a notebook everywhere helps me. If I have a thought while I'm sitting somewhere, I can begin a post right there. It's much faster to type it up later if it's really in the works on paper.

My other "secret" is blogging in bulk. If I have a couple of hours, during afternoon naptime (when I don't have a billion other things to do), I can start or finish a couple of posts. On a Saturday afternoon, I can start or finish a couple of posts.

I'm not quite as regular as this summer when we had no routine, but I'm still posting mostly daily, just because I want to and I carve out the time, and use tips like this.

But I've been happy that on days that I didn't get to post (or maybe didn't get anything up until 4pm instead of right away in the morning), I'm okay with it. I'm not a slave to my blog.
