Life has just become busier with every passing day.
Monday, June 14, 2010
Ok, I don’t know if “popular” is the word, but I would say that dozens of emails has done the trick.
Have you ever felt like the shoes you decided to put on were TOO BIG?
Well, I decided that I was going to be that mom this year.
You know the one.
The one who puts her kids first.
Before signing up on the meals for others sheet, before pursuing personal indulgence, before dates with friends, and even putting their goals and aspirations before my own.
You see my children have been helping me fulfill my responsibilities at church for awhile now, so I figured this year was their turn.
I had all the balls in the air and it was all going along just fine, until we hit Spring Break.
We headed to Arizona and had a great time.
When we got home, life took over.
It was the home stretch for school and with 5 out of 6 kids in sports, teenagers running track at school on top of travel teams, gymnastics for a 6 year old who had waited too long to try something herself, an 8 year old with piano competitions and a recital, not to even mention the school play, talent shows, field days, field trips and so on….
I was overloaded….just like these shoes are for the feet trying to fill them.
It is summer and the children are ready and willing to help me with one of my dreams…to help any one I can get more organized.
So, each morning mom has TWO hours, one for the exercise she has just reestablished in her life and one for our organization blog.
See you tomorrow!

Saturday is a perfect day to clean the ‘ole OVEN!
If you have a SELF-CLEANING one, Saturday is a perfect day to set the OVEN to clean and then play or work outside.
If you have one without that feature, there are some fumes from the spray cleaners that you would probably not want your children inhaling, so send them out to play.
Follow the same steps that you would if it were a cabinet or drawer.
EMPTY-Leave all racks IN for the cleaning, but remove everything else.
VACUUM-Use the edger on crumbs, so that it lessens the burn.
WIPE OUT-Wipe out large chunks BEFORE cleaning and wipe down all walls AFTER the cleaning process.
ORGANIZE-I store the broiler pan in the bottom oven, so make sure that it is clean before you put it back.
REPLACE-Replace all racks and other items after everything is clean and ready.
