I know you are more than tired of hearing about this, but I am so amazed. Here's how our weekend is shaping up:
Friday night: had friends over for Bible study in the evening
Saturday morning: Home Depot kids' workshop and then home to make meal plan and grocery list. I hate making meal plans and grocery lists.
Saturday afternoon: I had lunch to cook for everyone and then S cleaned up from lunch. Including sweeping!!! :) Girls and I shoot to Wal-Mart for the groceries. While I'm there, I get a phone call from S.
The preacher is sick and guess who is filling in tomorrow morning? Plus he already has to prepare for the Sunday night Bible study he leads. I begin teaching the new 2 year old's class at church tomorrow so I have 400 things to do for that. Plus I am finishing aprons this weekend which must be mailed on Monday. Plus I want to get the girls' summer chore charts ready to begin on Monday. Plus I am beginning summer workboxes on Monday and need to prepare those. Plus I really wanted to work on labels for the play room this weekend before the cousins start coming over this week. Plus, S has a meeting at 3:00 tomorrow afternoon and has to research and prepare a document for that meeting.
But you know what? It's going to be OK because we have a kitchen full of food and a plan for the meals. It's going to be OK because I did laundry all week and, while there is a bit more to do, everyone has enough to wear. It's going to be OK because I have been doing my checklist all week and the house is no where near perfect....but perfectly acceptable to ignore for now.
Before, we would have been eating out all weekend because no one had been to the store. Before, we would have been getting clothes ready at midnight before church the next day. Before, the house would have fallen completely apart while we attended to all the things we need to do.
I love organization. It's my new BFF. :)
