I found some great resources immediately when I started staying at home. Since then I have found a few other that I'm adding to my life little bits at time. Here are some that I use:
1. JustMommies Great, great resource! They gave me some great ideas, such as a cleaning calendar (complete with reminding me to change my air filter and wash out my trash can).
2. A Virtuous Woman I will never have enough good things to say about this resource. This website has given me devotions, a network of other mothers/women, recipes, teaching tools, and how to keep my house and home. She is currently doing a 15 Week devotion that is about making your house a calm, inviting, clean place. It's call From Chaos to Calm. I did it at the beginning of this year, and it was life-changing. I totally recommend it. The link I attached was directly to the page that includes schedules (that you will see in the pictures) and how to plan for your home.
3. I'm An Organizing Junkie I get a daily (mostly) email from this blog. She gives me some great ideas on how to organize my home. I have tweaked some of what she has shared and have shared them on here (last's week's cleaning post, for example).
Last School Year's Schedule
Note, I say "Last School Year's"? That's right. Just like teaching, we moms learn to monitor and adjust. I may not volunteer at my sons' school this year the same days/times. Although most of my workout schedule will stay the same, my increased involvement with the youth and college kids at the church may cause me to change my schedule just a bit. A few things I find important to keep in my schedule, no matter what: daily conversation/devotion/journaling with God, exercise, cleaning, cooking, and education for Abigail.
|Fine print: 6 am: Get dressed, start breakfast, get J seated and eating (this is pretty much the same every day)|
|Fine Print: Wednesdays I catch up the cleaning with vacuuming, dusting, polishing, wiping down/changing air filters, and washing the windows.|
|Fine Print: Thursdays I try to do laundry in the morning and prepare bread (that will cook after I pick up the kids in the afternoon)|
