I'm totally new to this whole housewife thing. Well, maybe not so much the housewife part but very much so the whole stay-at-home part. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love being at home all day and doing all my housewifely duties, but I really need to get some sort of routine in place.
I think that having a routine will really help me be more productive and organized. It's easy to be lazy and just hang out on Facebook or Pinterest all day and get absolutely nothing done. It's easy to push important things off "until tomorrow" and then realize at the end of the month that you still haven't done said important thing. It's easy to get busy starting ten different projects and then not actually finishing any of them. It's so easy to not make the most of your time each and every day.
Let me be clear on what I think a routine is. It is not a schedule and it can be flexible. I don't want to stress about sticking to my plans or making sure I get a certain amount of things done before noon each day. I want my routine to be made for me and have the ability to change it as I see fit. Obviously, different times of year will also factor into my routine. My summer routine will be different than my winter routine, but overall, some things will be the same.
Reformation Acres and I love them. I would recommend checking out her blog and posts on her binders.
I'm excited for the slower pace of fall and winter, even if the days are shorter and the weather is colder. I'm ready to buckle down and really dig deep into this whole stay-at-home-wife thing. I'm excited for the challenge and look forward to blogging about my adventures and sharing them with all of you.
Do any of you have some sort of a routine in place? Any advice or tips?
