Refining Possibilities Making the Best Use of Your Time – Small Notebook: You know when you read something and it puts words to how you have been feeling, that was this post for me. I feel completely overwhelmed when I have a stretch of time that nothing is planned. I question how to spend my time and if I am spending my time wisely. It makes sense, what she is saying about, as a mom, being used to “a series of five minute tasks and interruptions”, when I’m not functioning like this I don’t know what to do with myself. It’s so weird.
Project 52: Bucket List - I love.love.love. the idea of Project 52!!!! John and I are pretty good about having a date night once a month…usually on the 14th which is our anniversary date. And we always say we should do something intentional once a week, but you can imagine how that goes. I love the direct guidelines she sets up for Project 52, that there’s a Mr.Linky so I can get ideas from other people and that the dates involve staying at home and not having to find a sitter. Such a good idea!
Simple Mom: How to Create a Paperless Kitchen- This something I really want to do. I didn’t grow up with paper towels but it’s amazing how they have become a staple in our kitchen. I don’t want to get rid of them all together, but I would love to cut the use of them drastically. I love how Tsh spelled out what her “system” was for going paperless, it takes the thought out of it for me. Oh and how I love systems.
