Back-to-school planning

Friday, July 12, 2019

I am writing because I really want to say that I posted something today on my habit tracker list. I have several lists and papers with plans and to-dos and such that start out with so much hope and then I just loose steam and drop them like hot potatoes. Not this time. At least that's the plan, right?

There are only so many minutes in the day and hours in our lives and while it's true that we may not get it all done, we can at least take steps towards them. Today I went grocery shopping and realized they already have the school supplies out with lists and uniforms for back-to-school. This was eye opening because I am so not ready for that circus to start.

Yes, I want my boys to learn and get back into a routine, but I love to have a short break from the crazy schedules, and I'm not ready for it to end! I have so many things to do! I haven't even gone through their bins to empty out their old paper work and art and God only knows how many overdue parent forms I never got to.

Then their closets and drawers for uniforms and underclothes. At least I only have two in school this time instead of all three, but I'm already panicking. This is where my habit tracker and planner and calendars are supposed to help me, but they only work if I actually use them. I have them all and I use them as much as I can but... there are times when things still get lost in the shuffle.

You know I started this blog so that I could help inspire people with all the great things I have done, and to hold myself accountable, but it seems to always turn out into this "unloading things off my chest" which I'm pretty sure is not inspiring. At least I know it's somewhat relatable to the moms out there.

I'll try to wow you with my progress and inspiration later, for now have a great night!
