Here it is, another Monday has come around. Have you found your motivation for the week? I think I have; let's see if it sticks around all week.
I am motivated to be a more intentional teacher/mom. Although, I still feel like the boys and I are settling into our new lifestyle, I feel like I need to be even more on top of things. I had tv pretty limited but noticed it crept back into our daily routine more as the week went on. It was so convenient to let them watch one thing so I could get something done. Not this week. They weren't watching junk and were learning from what they saw, but still. I don't think having a strict schedule: we will do this at this time, for this long kind of thing will work. But, I think I definitely need to devote more of my day to them, and devote the free time that pops up to my other need-to-dos and want-to-dos.
I am motivated to focus on being more time efficient and not waste time on the smaller things such as checking stats on here and etsy as much. If I can, I'll wait until the end of the day. (This one may be a hard one for me)
Last night I organized my sewing room (dining room). Well, it's not perfect but it's a whole heck of a lot better. I cleaned off the table so now I have more room to lay projects out. I tried to organize my fabrics, but I don't know if I'll ever find a system that makes me 100% happy. There is now a clear bin that holds my queued fabrics and projects. I think I am the most excited about that part. And, I removed my scrapbooking stuff to make more room. In reality, it just means I am moving all that stuff to clutter up our bedroom. We have NO extra storage space in this house.
While I was working full time and going to school, the house would get very cluttered very quickly. Since I have started staying home, I have been trying to clean out/organize one little area a day. I plan on continuing that because itis the little things that make the difference. Now, our house is not dirty, relatively speaking with 2 young boys. It is just cluttered. Like I said, we have NO extra storage space.
So, there is my motivated Monday pep talk. What are you motivated to do this week?
