It occurred to me the other day that the end of this week will be exactly TWO months since we moved to OK. It took us nearly a month to just be here, what with arriving, our stuff coming later, then as soon as our stuff arrived, we had to go out of town again. So it's maybe been six weeks, since we've been here to even get a routine started. I haven't felt like we were "in" so I didn't feel ready to be "organized" either.
Well, that has to STOP now! LOL I spent yesterday getting my Control Journal together (anyone ever heard of Flylady? :) ) again. Putting all of my "daily" information into one binder (a 3 inch binder no less!) helped me to restart my thought processes.
I have most of the next school year "scheduled". Once we finish this school year, I'll clear our that stuff and make way for the next year's stuff on the shelves. I am wearing out our mail man by having so many books delivered lately. (I've discovered Half Price Books at www.hpb.com.) But at least everything is beginning to feel like it has a home. My husband got the needed shelving built last weekend, so that helped. Two more file cabinets come next. Then all my paper will be organized and out of sight! Woohoo!
It's funny how getting all these things done make me feel eager to schedule "me" by keeping track of my water, my cleaning schedule, my exercise plans, etc. But I can't exercise until these things are cared for - I am mentally distracted by it all. Getting the information sorting done, allows for the physical sorting.
I'm still doing all right with the water, I'm going to try to add in a small exercise routine daily, and a toning one every other day, Lord willing. These plus watching my calorie intake are the big consistencies that I am reaching for.
Prayer and diligence are the keys!
Proverbs 12:27 "The lazy man does not roast what he took in hunting; But diligence is a man's precious possession."
Psalm 143:1 "Hear my prayer, O LORD, Give ear to my supplications! In Your faithfulness answer me, And in Your righteousness."
