Rethinking the Routine

Well, folks, last week started out great. On Monday and Tuesday, I was definitely FLYing. On Wednesday, I started to lose ground. I got my daily routines done, but not my weekly tasks. The rest of the week was a complete loss. I just get more and more tired as the week rolls on. This tells me that I need to load up the beginning of the week with more tasks, and have less/easier tasks at the end of the week.

I had just been using the recommended weekly routine from Fly Lady. Clearly, I am going to have to put a bit more work into it than that. I found Fly Lady’s basic weekly checklist (scroll down to the bottom on the page) here. I have incorporated all of these activities into my weekly routine.

Monday
Weekly Home Blessing Hour

Tuesday
Clean cars, grocery shopping, clean fridge

Wednesday
Planning Day (menu, budget, activities, etc.), get together with my parents

Thursday
Pampering Mission

Friday
Renew your spirit day

Saturday
Family Fun Day

Sunday
Date night

On top of that, we currently do laundry every 3 days. Eventually, I would like to expand our wardrobes so that we do a load once a week. I’ve found that doing a daily load of laundry uses energy unnecessarily, in our family. There are only 3 of us, so we just don’t go through that much clothes in a day!

I will try this routine for the week, and I will keep you posted on our progress!
