I'm The Girl With The Plan - Sort Of
You may not have noticed, but on Wednesdays my posts are almost always tagged with "something for you." That's because I try to find something interesting and inspiring from the web to share with you each Wednesday. I don't always manage it, life is too full for that, but I do it fairly often. And, boy am I excited about what I have for you tomorrow. Anyway...
I am an organized person who likes the concept of schedules. I am also not so organized and disciplined that I actually stick to those schedules. What I like is the framework that a schedule gives me. I always think of them as a guide for my day, my parenting responsibilities, or in this case, my blog.
Because I know you are waiting with baited breath, here's my loose blog schedule.
Like I said, my schedules help me keep track of what I want to do and how I want to organize my life. I plan out my __________ (insert appropriate responsibility here) Schedule when I have time to contemplate and plan well. I work within it pretty strictly at first and change it as needed. Then, when life gets busy - I already have a plan that works for me and that I like. But, I feel fully free to abandon it at any moment should a better option present itself.
I have many, many schedules. My classroom obviously requires a pretty well planned schedule. And, that I generally stick to it. I also have a household chores schedule, a big projects schedule, a little projects schedule, a schedule of summer responsibilities for Sloane, the same for me, and even a date night schedule. Most of them are really lists with date and time suggestions. (I do believe I have mentioned before that I am a real list lover.)
I'm not sure why I thought you would find this interesting. I guess I am sharing it because I find it interesting. So, here are my questions for you: Do you have schedules, too? Do you love 'em, hate 'em, or ignore 'em? Maybe a more important question: Do you even spend time thinking about things like this?
The image above is Sloane's daily summer responsibilities schedule/ list thingy. She had a great time picking out the clipart. We laminated it so that she can check off each chore and we can clean it off each night to be ready for tomorrow. Sorry the picture is wonky. I don't have the software yet to make a document a JPEG, but if you click on it you can view it very large. Anyway, if you like it and want to use it as a template for your own, just email me and I will send it to you.
In case you want more...
