Routine Is Key

Since I am a stay at home mom, its easy to not have routine, especially with my girls not yet in school. But its time all that changes. I am done loosing hours in the day & not be able to fit everything. I kind of feel like I am all over the board each day & its draining. So I sat down & I put together a weekly routine.  I want it to be solid & functional.. but I don't want it to feel like work either.. I want it to be honest & to fit our family.

So if you are not currently a routine family household but want to see if it works try one out. Tweak it when needed but stick with it for at least two weeks. Don't give up the first few days because you & your family have to adjust, remember change doesn't happen over night but it can work you just have to be patient. I honestly can't wait to start our new schedule today & share with you all over the next two weeks if it has worked, if I had to change somethings or if we just aren't a routine family.. (but I honestly believe we thrive for it).
