What a week it's been....
From learning how to juggle the needs, wants and tantrums of two kiddos, as well as running back and forth between doctors appointments, getting Aidan to and from school and trying to keep a handle on everything at the house, it's been challenging.
I feel like I have a lot of catching up to do.
From wedding planning (which has ground to a complete halt), to my Mom's group duties (monthly newsletter needs to be written, November events planned and pending members need to be met), cleaning up the house (what's a broom?), grocery shopping (milk, eggs, sugar, bread, meat, etc.), making appointments that have been put off for far too long (dentist, vet, opthamologist) and DIY/sewing projects (still haven't finished Aidan's nap mat for school...). Not to mention I need to start getting ready for the holidays and all that they entail (parties, shopping, decorating, gifts, etc.) Whew!
Tonight after I tuck Aidan into bed I'll be heading off for a little bit on my own. For the first time since Connor was born. Huzzah!
My destination? Barnes and Noble.
I desperately need an Organizer so I can begin to keep track of all of the things that need to get done in my life. If I keep it all in my head or in my Droid, I still won't be able to really see what takes priority and how busy I will be during any given week.
I'm determined to become more organized. I used to be. To the point where I had all of our dinners planned out a month ahead of time. Also, I made a daily list of tasks that needed to be completed and had two different planners, one at home and one I kept in my purse at all times. Now? Notsomuch.
I need this to happen. So that I can be a better wife, mother, friend and homemaker. Or else I'll just end up running around like a chicken with my head cut off.
And now I ask you, dear readers, how do you stay organized? Any tips for this new Mama of two munchkins? Any advice will be well appreciated!
Happy weekend and first day of Fall, friends! :)
