Getting Organized

…and staying that way.

I’m pretty good at organizing things but I’m still figuring out how to organize my time. I procrastinate on the things I dislike a lot. I tend to dislike home-management stuff so you can see where this is going. It’s not that I dislike home-management stuff, I just dislike the conditions under which I end up having to do it all the time. I like to do that type of stuff during the day. But I homeschool during the day. And starting in September, I’ll be leaving my house to take Wild Child 2 to his therapy appointments. So it looks like my evenings are going to be spent on housework for a couple of years. And that’s hard to accept so I haven’t really put any “plan” into effect. Essentially because a plan in which I DON’T spend quiet evenings at home blogging, knitting or watching movies while my children are asleep is not appealing.

So there you have it. This weekend is big. I’ll be putting away piles of stuff that have been accumulating becuase there are certain things I can’t put away when I’m the only adult in the house. (Does anyone care to explain why children LOOOOOOOOVE to throw clean, folded laundry on the floor as soon as you turn your back??? Or why when you’ve got a file cabinet open they’re grabbing papers and files out of it and throwing it around like it’s the junk mail you let them mess around with???)

I’ll be preparing the next two weeks’ homeschooling lessons and making them portable. Since we’ll have to have at least one subject taught while we wait for Wild Child 2’s therapy to finish.

I’ll be cleaning up the basement too.

And I’ll probably do little to no knitting.

All right. Start blogging.
Stop Complaining!
