I hate it and I am currently a
little bit overwhelmed by it. The only routine I have in my life is dinner time is always before 6:00pm every night. That’s it. I try to have routine…especially with Christina but it seems next to impossible to keep. I hate to look at my calendar and have a bunch of stuff to do, places to go, and people to see. I think I have become a home body…and that’s not good. I love to look at me week ahead and it be empty.I wasn’t always like this. Before I quit working in 2006 I loved schedules and routines. I would get excited to have my Franklin Covey full of activities. But I’ve got lazy – there I said it…I have become complacent and lazy and I like my whatever happens happens schedule.
This has to change….and it has to change now.
You see I should be registering John for Pre-School this week but I am home schooling…which I am so excited and scared to death about. If I am being honest with you I might as well lay it out on the line…Am I going to be able to keep up with this new routine and schedule??
I am planning on starting school on September 6th but maybe I should wait until September 12th and start on a Monday. We have 160 lessons to cover. Yes…it’s only Pre-School but I want to get this right. This is his first steps into his education….and I am the one in control of it – which freaks me out even more…generally this would make me happy since I am
sort of a control freak.
Starting in September we will have school everyday from 10:00-12:30. We will have soccer practice, music class, and bible class for John in the evenings. Christina will have music class one evening a week. We will have our Seekers class one afternoon every week. Sprinkle in birthday parties, doctor appointments, holidays, field trips, and whatever else life may bring. I can do this.
I have done a routine before.
I can re-establish habits/schedules/and sleeping patterns.
