Thank you everyone for your replies. I still haven't found my keys
. I had a towing company come out and unlock the doors and they weren't there either. My daughter said someone must have come into our house and taken them because they needed keys
To answer some of the questions asked:MamaOui
- My house is fairly organizred due to my dh and at my best I have organized chaos. We have a spot where our keys go but I still don't always put them there. Getting things ready the night before is a great idea but I am a true procrastinator and always tell myself I can do it in the morning. However getting things ready the night before would be one step toward success in not being late. That's also a great idea about writing appts. earlier.
Corriander it's good to hear it took you awhile to figure it all out
oli's mama - No I don't think we are over scheduled. My daughter doesn't go to preschool, we meet w/ other families once or twice a week, gymnastics once a week and go grocery shopping once a week. I defintely need a few extra sets of keys!
mom3- HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your twins!!!!! I hope you all had a great day. Organization has never been one of my virtues and ITA agree about our kids teaching us. Again getting things ready the night before sounds great we'll see if I can make myself do it.
mojomom - MY PARENTS WERE ALWAYS LATE!!!! I hated it. And I hate the fact that I am teaching my kids this too. The only difference is I freak out and I don't really remeber my parents doing that. But I do remember not thinking I had to get ready untill my parents were already late and telling us we had to go. My problem is I never think of these things like keeping extra stuff in the car. I am not a planner. I just go with the flow and never try to organize things. I think I'm afraid of becoming too anal!! How stupid is that? I don't want to be too organized, too ready for anything. It drives me crazy that my dh is like that. But I am also a little envious of it too. Relaxing and counting to 10 is a great thing and one I try and remember to do.
I hate to waste others time and always feel bad about that.
Busymommy I'm glad you've accepted that part of yourself. I've tried to just accept it too and it's worked for awhile but now I feel it's only getting worse
DebraBaker - Your words are very helpful to hear. Slowly organize and that I won't be disgustingly organized.
cadiland - I have tried that before and it has worked. But I'm just not consistent
thanks granolamom good idea about the keys
Thanks everyone you've given me lots to think about and try. It's helped a lot to write it all out.
