I've decided to give myself a fresh start. I feel in order to do that I need to start at the beginning: determine what has went wrong in the past, decide how I will do things differently, and most importantly I need to just let it all go. I need to let go of feeling guilty for being overwhelmed with everything when we found out Lexton is Autistic. Let go of feeling guilty about falling behind, and let go of wanting a perfection that doesn't exist.
My problem in the past is that I create half a plan, then jump in headfirst to get as far into that plan as I can. Then come to a crashing stop when I realize I took on way more than I could handle all at once. So this time, I'm starting fresh. I'm going to develop an entirely new plan. And really thinking about the goals I want to set to be sure they're realistic.
Does anybody honestly dust everything in their house once a week? I'm talking every knick knack, every picture, the baseboards, trim the whole nine yards? If you do, please take a moment to pat yourself on the back! Because although before I gave myself this fresh start, I thought it should be done. I don't know why, but I did. But sitting here right now, I can honestly tell you, it is NOT going to happen around here. It's just not possible.
So that's where I'm at, setting goals that I know I can achieve, and making a list of ideas to reach them. I know I need a schedule, with a prioritized list. So I'm starting there.
Do you have a homemaking schedule? How do you stay organized?
