Has back to school madness hit you yet? Where I live, today is the first day of school. We will start next week to allow me some additional much needed planning and organizing time. A lot of our activities begin this week. I. am. not. ready. I love the less structured days of summer. But alas, the school year must begin and I must go back to being a homeschool mom and business owner. Some days it is a lot to deal with and a lot to fit into 24 hours. I am often asked how I do it. Today, I’m going to share how I do it. I’ve got some organization tips for you as well.
I’m pretty sure the thing I hear most from both readers and friends is, “I don’t know how you do it.” I can tell you it doesn’t happen by accident.
Today, I’m going to share exactly how I do what I do. At least the being organized in order to have a fighting chance of doing what needs to get done each day. I’ve got an arsenal of tools, planners, and methods to my madness. I’m certain that you can pick up an organization tip or two from what I do. I truly hope that what I share can help you if you are feeling anxious about what needs to get done each day.
I don’t get done what I do by living like I do in the summer. Carefree, lazy days go by the wayside during the school year. Pretty much every moment of my day is scheduled. It can be tons of fun and it can be totally stressful. Just depends on the day, the kids, and the deadlines.
First, what exactly am I talking about. In case you aren’t familiar with me, I’m a homeschooling mom. I also own a business, this blog. I also run the house and take care of my two girls, most of the time by myself as my husband travels A LOT. My girls are active in a homeschool class (or maybe 2), girl scouts and 1 additional extra-curricular activity each. I am also a Girl Scout leader. It is a lot and most days I love it all and wouldn’t even begin to know what to give up. Though there are days I want to give it all up. Right?! You know what I mean…I know you do.View full post »
