Moving can be very overwhelming! I'm sure you've already done this, but breaking it into pieces and scheduling those pieces so you can see that everything will get done might help. Good luck. Come here and vent whenever you need a break. :)

Let's see. Work this morning, desk over lunch, and then I'm trying out a new schedule\routine to help me get more done around the house. Back to the FlyLady way. I set up daily and weekly schedules yesterday and am going to put them in practice today. It might sound a little rigid but I need a stricter schedule to keep me honest.

This afternoon I've got housework and piano practicing to do. After school I need to get dinner going and work on some pots that got oil burned onto them while dinner was cooking last night. ICK! Megan will have homework and swim practice as usual. (Oh, and as an aside, we were talking about grades this morning and Megan asked if I had gotten hers yet. Then she asked if spelling tests counted towards her grade. Ummmm, why wouldn't they?) I've switched things up and am making her practice piano midway through homework so she doesn't have to do it after swim practice when she's tired and cranky; Though tired and cranky seems to be normal these days. That's an entirely different post...

Tonight Evan has Scouts and dh is going to martial arts class. I'm hoping to get to the health club from 7-8 while Evan is doing homework. I thought maybe it would be better to watch The Biggest Loser while walking on the treadmill instead of on the couch eating chocolate covered peanuts! Dh is on Megan's swim carpool pick up leg. Hooray! No driving for me after 5:30!

Have a great day everyone!

Ami, let me know how the fly lady is working. One of the moms from Emma's EC board always raves about it, and I have tried starting it a few times, but I never seem to make it past the kitchen sink part. :0(

Thanks. I'm only about half way done with the office and have 10 boxes so far. It's all books so I have to be careful not to overload the boxes. I am labeling where it will eventually wind up and if it goes to storage or to the ILs. I think I'm going to want the storage unit in Feb rathe rthan waiting until March.

Cheryl, was she questioning why you were doing it as opposed to Kristen, or because Kristen was applying for scholarships at all?

She wanted to know why I was doing all of the legwork for Kristen.
