Six Word Saturday
"Need To Be Organised...Any Tips...."
So it's January...the beginning of the year and I so need to be better organized this year.
Last year was a blur and life seemed to rush by with me chasing after it and never quite catching up to the extent I needed.
Everything was last minute and I got through barely,hanging on by the skin of my teeth.
It was a horrible feeling,I spent most of the year on permanent catch up or that's how it felt.
Birthdays,work deadlines,school projects,Easter and especially Christmas just seemed to swallow me up and eat me alive and I didn't like that feeling at all.
The house reflected all this too,every drawer and cupboard was,erm is stuffed full of 'stuff' all waiting to be organized.Its like a giant jango game,you touch one thing and 50 million things will come falling out.
And while all this was happening what was I doing...working hard with the kids,working incredibly hard at work where the workload I bring home probably more than tripled,getting dins ready,doing laundry which in this house,as in many I guess,is a near on full time job in itself!Not sitting still much and when I did sit down I would just fall to sleep through exhaustion.
This year I need it to be different,I really do,I don't want to feel like I'm chasing myself so hard,it's not a nice feeling.
SO and it's a heartfelt big SO how do you guys sort life out?I know we all have busy life's but some of us seem to be organized and coping.Whats the best way forward?Any helpful tips will be gratefully received
