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.
Weekly Home Blessing Hour
Clean cars, grocery shopping, clean fridge
Planning Day (menu, budget, activities, etc.), get together with my parents
Renew your spirit day
Family Fun Day
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!
