I accidently came across it on Saturday. What in the WORLD? The very day I was asking someone else about their notebook, I find mine??
Is that providence?
Let's change the subject. How about them HAWKS!! Wasn't that a great game Saturday?
OK -- no really... do you have a notebook?
I do... unused, obviously. I did use it this spring... pre-soccer, then mis-placed it. I really was looking for it all during soccer season, because it had in there when I was supposed to bring treats. I had to keep asking the other mom's... "Is it my turn next week?" I'm a doofus.
Well I'm jumping back on the notebook bandwagon.
I've got dividers...different sections.
- Bible reading and prayer stuff.
- T-Tapp (just today.. I updated it today) °Ü° Nutrition stuff here too.
- Child training... OK -- now I have no excuse... MUST do obedience bootcamp with them.
THAT's right!! Housekeeping...
This is just perfect timing, because I'm re-doing the chore lists for the kiddos. I'm going to use the goalforit, as I blogged about earlier, for their chores. I'm working on the store. I'm working on divying up the chores. I'm working on it... just haven't arrived yet. I'll do a reveal later. I'm working on it... really.
Anyway... the housekeeping and the chores sort of tie together. I found in my old notebook my BOOTCAMP FOR LOUSY HOUSEKEEPERS by Drill Srgt. Heidi Schaap. She calls herself that... not me. She's got a blog... it's pretty. She has a GREAT system all written out for keeping your house decent and in order. If I would just follow it! So I'm going to start over again... here I go Heidi. Oh... look -- she's on facebook too.
I'm going to put all my stuff to do on my google calendar. I have several google calendars set up. I did my menu on a google calendar this month. AWESOME! Dan liked one of the new new things I tried this month... so I went to the calendar and chose to repeat that meal every 4 weeks. Next month I have 1 less meal to figure out. I'm so excited about that.... but that was a bit of a rabbit trail, wasn't it?
I have a calendar for medical appointments. One for sports schedules. Another one for our music, such as piano lessons and when we sing or play at church. Each calendar shows up as a different color on ONE calendar. It's so cool! Google calendar -- it will now tell me when to dust the book shelves, and wash the curtains and clean off the top of the fridge. I think I'll make this calendar PINK. If I follow the schedule she thought up, follow her rules, play her game -- I should not have to worry about if my house is clean or not when company comes by. So guess what that means... YOU SHOULD COME BY!! I can't wait to see you.
