The New Year came in with a whiz! So much so that I was TOTALLY UNPREPARED for the restart of school. The girls had been staying up late and sleeping in, all of the extra curricular activities were on break and there was NO HOMEWORK!
When last Tuesday hit, I did not know what was happening to me. I did not plan to fail. I simply FAILED to plan.
So, I am instituting a night time routine! I know I should have already done this but, the truth is sometimes I am so tired that I bargain with myself that getting up earlier in the morning will be the fix! Which we all know IS SO NOT.
Ok, so since I like to KISS (Keep it simple sista), here is my new nightime routine:
1. Pick out clothes and Pack lunches the night before—I KNOW this works but I have just NOT done it for thousands of reasons that sound really good at the time but in reality are just putting off the inevitable.
2. Do a quick 10 mintue clean up—Simple returning things where they go and gathering back packs, hats, coats etc. (Easier said than done, but a Diva gotta do what a Diva gotta do!)
3. DO a mental Dump-I tend to get wired at night when I begin think about all the things that I have to do the next day and over the week ahead. My new trick is going to be writing these things down. I may even log some tasks in my icalendar with reminders!
Proverbs 27:12 The prudent see danger and take refuge,but the simple keep going and pay the penalty.
Do you have a night time routine?
