Mama Moments: Schedule Your Life

     For several months now I have been flying by the seat of my pants, so to speak.  Each night before I go to bed I run through all I need to do the next day and before I fall asleep I have a basic game plan for the day in my head.
     The next morning begins just as I thought it would.  I get my kids up and moving, pack a lunch for the hubby and head out the door to drop him off at the train station by 6:15am.  But on the way home Boo (my baby) may fall asleep and because I didn’t sleep much (she’s cutting teeth so that’s pretty much the norm right now) I decide to nap with my girls when we get home.
     We all wake up and I realize it’s nearly 9:00am!!!  We haven’t had breakfast yet and I still need to get cleaned up for the day!  I hate, and I really mean HATE, running behind.  I end up spending so much time being worried about getting everything accomplished that day – I end up getting through only about a 1/3 of it.
     This seemed to be happening to me a lot these past few months, since we moved.  I don’t mean I take naps every day (which sounds fabulous) but I get off track to easily and lose all my focus for the day.
     So I finally decided to write out a schedule for myself.  Years ago I did this all of the time and it always helped me stay in a better frame of mind, stay calm and accomplish so much more.
     I have been in love with Jen’s IHeart Organizing Blog for awhile now.  So I quickly decided to snoop around her whole blog and see how she organizes her time.  That is how I found her Free Printables Page!!!  Now I am REALLY in love with her blog!!  You must hop right over there and download your own super cute pages – you will love it!

I decided to post them on my fridge so I had to look at them multiple times every day.  I created my own Weekly Routine Schedule where each item I must do everyday has it’s own time slot.  I’m using her “A Peak at the Week” Schedule to keep track of what cleaning I need to do each day and another one for my workout video schedule.

I have also decided to use the “A Peak at the Week” Schedule for blogging.  I have two blogs going and I want to stay organized with them – no more running behind.  So I plan out my blogging topics here, for the what, when and where it should go.  Not to mention she has a super cute “My Fabulous Blog Ideas” page that is a must for all bloggers.

*Jen has not asked me to write about her super awesome blog.  In fact, I should probably send her an e-mail and let her know that I did.  Ha! I just absolutely love all that I have found on her blog and wanted to share!  You can also follow her on Twitter and Facebook if you’d like.
     It’s only been a week since I started my scheduled life and I have to say it’s been much better.  I will still have a day when things don’t go as planned for sure.  But now I can quickly look at my Weekly Routine and decided where I want it to go instead!  No panic, no worry just re-organizing!
