I was insired by Amy at Heart Matters to start a schedule for activities to do with my boys. so I am going to try to start making one.
Today- we made a craft with foam shapes and baked banana bread
Wednesday- Playdate in the morning
Thursday- Library if weather is nice
I'll update this post tomorrow with more ideas.
Today was my first day of my new habit.. turning off the computer..
Normally the computer is on all the time, so its right there and I am on it most of the day while the boys play by themselves in the living room. I spent too much time browsing blogs and scrapbook message boards, which is very addicting let me tell you. By doing that, it lead my house to be a mess all the time and found my self easily stressed and had no patience with the boys.
So last week I decided it was time for a change. In order to do that the first thing I needed to do was spend less computer time. I thought I start it at the beginning of a new week. Since yesterday was a holiday for Jeremy, it was spent as a family day and things were were back to normal today.
So about my great day today...
I got up early to shower and get ready before the boys woke up. Spent alittle bit of time checking my usual sites. As soon as the boys woke up, off went the computer.
- spent a lot of time playing in our clean toyroom (thanks to dad for cleaning it sunday!)
- Tyler and I did a craft
- baked banana bread
- kept toyroom clean
- did dishes after every meal
- did 2 loads of laundry, even folded and put away
- had supper together (not something that happens often due to dad's work schedule)
- even schedule a playdate for tomorrow (normally too embarassed to have anyone over)
I only turned on the computer while Tyler was napping and even that was productive because i got a scrapbook page done for my Amazing digi Scrapping race.
I got tons accomplished and felt great at the end of the day when Jeremy got home!
Hopefully tomorrow is just as good!
