I have a tendency to put off things until I can do it right which means some things never get done. I will let laundry pile up because I want to reorganize the drawers before I add new stuff. One day an idea came to me and I was shocked at the brilliance...put the clothes away now, get it out of the way and organize later, maybe one drawer at a time. Duh~!
It took until the fourth kid, yes the fourth, to start making this change in my life. I had to. I was being taken over by chaos. The kids now have a color system. Nevaeh is Blue, Selah is Pink and Danica is Green. I haven't figured out Savy yet (she is the new one. I will get to her later)
Shoes! I use to run around looking everywhere for their shoes. I could find one but not the other and it would make us late. It was a constant fight and battle. Now shoes go directly in their box and they get their own shoes now and put them on themselves.
My other motto is procrastinate now and panic tomorrow. I'm finding my peace and tranquility....sort of. Anyone else have great ideas they want to share. I'm all ears!
