Now that the no-work and all-fun part of my summer vacation is over, I've been using one of my other fave websites to help me get back into the groove and stay focused. My aunt passed it on to my mother and me and we have been using it off and on for years to develop routines and eliminate CHAOS (can't have anyone over syndrome) from our lives!
It can be a bit cheesy, and I don't follow everything down to the last detail, but it has helped me to regain control of the clutter and dirt in my house and create the sort of environment that keeps me upbeat, motivated and goal-oriented. Now that my housekeeping routines are falling into place, my exercise and thesis schedules are easier to stick to.
Getting the housekeeping under control and decluttering both the office and the clothes closet are key, not just for my sanity, but also pending our move to the new house when it is finished in December. I want to purge as much stuff as I can and get my routines down pat so that when I have a much bigger home with a yard to clean I won't be overwhelmed.
I have 5 weeks left before I return to work September 3rd. 5 weeks to get my housekeeping routine to the point where it is automatic, 5 weeks to develop and stick to a workout routine and 5 weeks to get the bulk of the thesis written and organized. GO GO GO!!!
