This is the time where if you do not want to hear about my terrible parenting, house-keeping, and wifey skills, you should probably turn off your monitor or click onto another page of my blog.
I am a terrible stay-at-home mom.
Our house is so much messier in the summertime. We hardly ever eat at home. And I feel like I am always...as in ALWAYS...every single day, day-in and day-out...trying to play catch-up.
I have big plans for fun things to do in the summertime...day-trips and outings that the girls will love. I believe this summer, I actually made TWO of those happen. TWO. Out of a list of at least 15 ideas.
And sooooooo...this post is me, preaching to myself, about being better about something.
Planning for fun.
Or maybe I should say it in capitals...PLANNING for fun.
Because I am a planner. This we know.
And so I have decided to make it a habit to plan for fun this school year.
So I made a little spreadsheet.
On one side, I put some ideas for fun stuff we could do between now and Christmas. I left some blanks on the bottom because I'm sure I'll think of new things (or find new ideas on Pinterest or blogs!).
And on the right side, I just wrote "date". I filled in a few dates that I was sure of and left the other ones to fill in with Matthew sometime soon. I think if we write it down and hang it on the refrigerator, we will stick to having some FUN this fall!
So your challenge for today (or yesterday, I should say) is to create a list of fun things you want to do before the end of 2012. Then start plugging them in on your calendar! Do not rush through life without having fun! I tried that route and it is NOT worth missing out on making memories with your babies!
