OK....now I remember how much i liked planning my days so much. The stress relief of just knowing what (in theory) is coming next in my day was so nice! I thawed the meat, gave the kids their lunch and snacks in a rhythm that, of late, we didn't have. I really need to look at creating a flexible schedule for other things like cleaning and working to help reduce the stress level I currently have....I am hoping to find a blog to help me in that process as well.
I really started losing track of our daily routine when my dad died in April. I had things going pretty smoothly for the most part with just Jax and Jojo for a while. Jay came just shy of two months later...and boy was that throwing feul on the fire where our messed up routine was concerned.
I have found that the more organized I am...the better I handle chaos around me. I don't always have a back-up plan, but I do have some sort of structure to fall back on.
Off to plan meals and snacks for the rest of the week (in baby steps...)
