Life has finally calmed down and I think spring might be here. Last week we had two nice days and we spent a lot of time outside and it was fabulous. I can't wait for it to get nice again. My goal for the summer is to spend most of the time outside.
Things are calmer but I still feel like I have too much to do but I am not really doing any of it. I am not a cleaner infact I really hate it but I love a clean house. When my house is messy it feels like a weight is on my and the worse it gets the crankier I get and I feel like I am suffocating.
In my last post I talked about how a fellow blogger started a schedule and how it made everything so much easier for her and her family. I was and am inspired. I know that if I was more efficient with cleaning that it wouldn't weigh me down so much and that I could actually do the things I want to do. I would rather be doing crafts with Ally and playing with the girls.
So after a talk with Mike I am going to set up a schedule and stick to it. I am a big fan of rewards so I am going to bribe myself along the way. I did the bribes with my marathon and it really helped me to look at the steps of the goal and not get overwhelmed by the shear size of it.
This is what I want to achieve this week:
1. Keep my house clean - we are going to do a big clean tomorrow and I want to maintain it because I will be away next weekend but my brother-in-law will be coming and having guests when my house is messy stresses me out. So my goal is to have the house clean so on Friday I am not doing a mad clean.
2. Exercise - I want to start going for walks again and I would like to do this once this week. This may seem small but it is a 4 day week. Eventually I would like to be going 3 or more times a week, bike riding twice and maybe even getting back on the WII.
3. I want to cut down my computer time. 'Nuff said but I am going to try and blog my progress.
4. I want to get my sewing room set up again so that I can start sewing again in the evenings.
So, wish me luck because I am naturally a lazy person but I need to get a good system going before #3 comes because things will get more difficult.
