Every Friday I used to have glorious plans to “get the house in order” and “organize this place.” Saturday, I wake up, get the coffee flowing, make my meal plan and grocery list, aaaaaand sit on the couch with the fam.
I make it to the store. I like going to the store. It’s nice because we all go — my husband, son, and I. It’s a nice trip, but, that cleaning and organizing I planned out doesn’t get done. I pick up here and there, dust a little this and that, and run the vacuum to control the cat-hair tumbleweeds, but that’s it.
You know what? This morning I woke up, and the house looked presentable. I can handle that.
We need to eat, so that the grocery shopping gets done, and we need to live in a clean house, it’s clean. Is it sparkling? Nope. Is that OK. For me, yep. (We do a quick pick-up and the dishes daily.)
I take my weekends seriously. If we have a place to go or an event, we only do that. We never book more than one thing on a weekend. Time just goes too fast. Sundays are usually our “hang out” days. We may go to the park, or sled riding, or the grocery store because we couldn’t on Saturday, but we mostly chill, watch movies, play games, etc.
Preparing for the week by just being calm on a Sunday really works for me and my family. Do you take time to chill on weekends?
