I try to do the nightime routine. It does start the day better. If I do that and the weekly home blessing, I am in good shape. Anyone else do a nighttime routine? Here is mine:
-10 minute tidy up (everyone does this at the same time, big help!)
-Hot spots (rarely happens)
-shine the sink (well, put the stuff away, it isn't shiny)
-Ben's routine (bath, brush, books)
-Lay out our clothes (this helps dh match and he told he me really feels taken care of when I do this, so I try to do this everyday, he is color blind, so I have to help him or he gets a ticket from the fashion police at work)
-set coffee maker
-gather laundry and put by the door
-plug in cell phone and put phone on charger
-wash my face
-check calendar for tomorrow
I made up sheets that I print out with stuff to do on them, then I can make notes or whatever. I tried putting them in a note book and using the page protectors as suggested, but I like a clean sheet I can write on. Ds uses the backs. I also have a morningand afternoon routine that is pretty basic. If I follow these things at least 3 days a week, I do okay. I don't fling, zone or rescue on a regular basis, too much, but the routines help. Maybe I will work my way up to that. Anyone else have a good routine to post?
edited to add: ds gets freaked out everytime I wear my shoes, he keeps telling me "take your shoes off and stay home." I do feel better with them on, more productive, but I wear sandals, not sneakers. Also, my feet feel better at the end of the day.
