Why I Started Scheduling My Days
I have made it this far in my life without using a day planner or any type of schedule, for that matter. I didn’t really think of myself as the type to need something like that. I am learning that as our family grows and the kids get a little older things get crazier. Wyatt is in school and doing Taekwondo after, Echo is doing preschool at home, Brett is at work all day, I am trying to take care of everyone and still have time to blog about awesome stuff.
Recently, I’ve been having a hard time keeping it all together and not letting anything fall through the cracks. Like, right now as I am typing this, I am thinking about the mountain of clothes that is in need of folding and the dishes that need washed. Wouldn’t it be nice if we had extra arms or more hours in the day? I want to be able to look my kids in the eye when they are talking to me, not at one of the million things I am doing at that moment. I want them to know, yes, mommy is busy but she always has time for us. So I am officially a daily planner person!
I went to Walmart and got a cheap and not every attractive planner and Duck Tape. I used some ribbon and a flower that I had on hand to make this awesome day planner.
I love it! It looks like burlap.
Here is a rough draft of how I am going to schedule my day.
6:00 am- Blog Time (Oh Yeah!)
7:00 am- Breakfast
9:00 am- Everyone is off to school and work
10:00- 11:00 am- Learning time for Miss Echo
11:00 am-12:00 Pm- Lunch
12:00-2:00 pm- Craft/creative time/Daily chores
2:00-3:00 pm – Pick up Wyatt/ Snack time
3:00-4:00 pm- Homework/ Learning time
5:00-6:30 pm – Dinner/Family time
7:00-9:00 pm – Family time/ Sports
9:00 pm- Bedtime
10:00 -until I am too tired to work pm- More Blog Time!
I love that I am still able to fit in time to do what I want to do but most importantly that I am able to spend uninterrupted time with Wyatt and Echo.
I love feedback so please feel free to leave a comment below and let me know what you think or if you have any tips for planning out my days. Thank you and have a good one!
