Mondays a day for quite

My quite after a storm of the weekend. Or not so quite as the mockingbirds are battling it out outside the window. Still that is peace and feels like stillness after a chaotic weekend.

Today I did little other than the normal daily life. So I thought I would share with you another printable that will from now on will live in my printable page.  Here is my Daily Rhythm Goal. It was what I hope will happen. It does not always happen and to be honest the first part happens very very rarely.

I almost never get up before Little. I dream of this. I want to, I hope to, but I never quite manage it. Mostly my mornings start with Little saying “wake up wake up” or crawling into bed with me or my personal favorite “MOOOOMMMMMMMMMMMY I have poop.”  Still I keep my goal sheet the way it is because I hold out hope that some day she will sleep in past 6am. On a related note I some times tell her that when she is a teenager, I may wake her up in similar manners at the same time. I have no idea if I will follow through with this, but it always gives me a chuckle

Back to my sheet. I keep this inside my homemakers binder. It’s a reference, and idea, and a rhythm plan but not really a schedule to follow rigorously. I find that having a set rhythm that Little and I do day in and day out is helpful for not just her, but me as well.  If I get sidetracked (which lets face it happens frequently) I can refer to my daily sheet and get back on track. As I said though I am not a slave to it. If something doesn’t happen one day there is always tomorrow.

Ah and before I forget. The home blessings. I have one on Mondays that are the flylady kind and then Little and I have just started doing a daily one that is a pick up/ tidy up followed by snack. I saw this one someones blog. If I can remember which one I will post it. She said she always wanted her boys to get off the couch and pick up after themselves. She was tired of the nagging that moms some times have to do all day to get the house to look less like an earthquake, tornado and flood simultaneously hit. So she came up with this end of the day clean up. I loved the idea. toys can stay out but at 4 or really for us 4:30 its time to put them all away. Then we make dinner and when Daddy gets home, our home is a place peace and joy and dinner is ready. So its working really well and both Little and I are happy with the arrangement.

Now I’m off to bed. See you all tomorrow.

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
