The lack of blog posts tells it all. It’s been a busy fall season. Let me tell you how my October went and wait we haven’t even reached Halloween yet! haha
October started with no jet leg. Why I say this, is because honestly my entire family had jet leg for about 2 weeks at the end of September. Who knew coming back from vacation/Italy could be that difficult to get back into a routine again. So once we got over that everything else fell into place…very quickly!
My weeks looked a little like this, (My husband calls me super mom, but honestly moms – don’t you feel like super mom when you don’t do anything! ah!)
Weekly activity schedule: Play groups, gymnastics, library programs and swimming. But wait lets add on, my gym time, yoga, shopping time, and planning my son’s baptism. With all this going on, my October just got jammed. Needless to say, the schedule helped with my forgetfulness, since each day I knew what I had planned for the kids. I can definitely vouch that having your weeks planned is much easier, rather than trying to find something to do the day of. Plus I think I finally got my son’s nap schedule figured out.(Only took me 4 months) Between all the activities and keeping him on track of his naps, the weekly routine helped me plan his schedule out too.
Yet with a weekly routine, I still find it hard to find time for just the random stuff that is on the to do list. You know moms- that never ending mental list you have stored in the back of your brain. Therefore, it would seem that a schedule could help with that, but I often feel that it doesn’t. My evenings are jammed. Its either, a laundry evening, prepping food/lunch evening or running out of the house to get a few last minute items. Finding time is hard! I often think its a task within its self. Now If I ask you, how do you find that extra time? Please do share!! I need some tips.
So starting November 1, my new task will be finding more time! If that’s even possible. I guess we’ll see.
