What a day! My back knows I was busy today…
What is on your to-do list every day? How do you figure out what is the most important?
A long time ago I learned this little saying: Drop – Delay – Delegate – Do!
There is also a little quadrant that looks like this:
So instead of blogging today, which is my joy to share with our readers, I got busy attacking the work that needs to be done to set up for a pleasant school year and efficient Bradley classes. Here is how Drop – Delay – Delegate – Do looks with the quadrant:
We are coming up on some exciting times in our family and pretty soon people are going to start descending on the house. If I want to clean once, I need to do it. I know where I want to find things, and I also want to get on with the purging!! It’s easy to throw things in boxes and hide them behind a closet door (been there, doing that when I choose sleep over cleaning!). I find that those boxes become an albatross, taunting me and calling my name when I really just want to sit and enjoy our children or dig into a good book.
So I am sorry if we missed each other today…I hope you had a great day. While we enjoyed camping out on our living room floor the first three days of our school year…it is *really* nice to have the school room organized, the kiddos back in a rhythm, and our living room is closer to being ready to receive guests…and now our physical space for school is ready which means I will be in a better mental space and I also have a place to write that doesn’t make me sit at crazy angles…yeah all around!
I still have to straighten up the dining room table that becomes my desk when I run out of space in the school room. I will get to that tonight after the kiddos are in bed!
