Has anyone gotten started this week? I have been through days one through 3 and am really enjoying it. I feel like I'm learning a lot about the way I operate as a wife and mother, even as a person in general.
How's it going for everyone else?

I'm on day 4. I won't be able to go past 2 weeks but maybe with some help I can still do the exercises. I used to journal everyday, and ever since cory came along I haven't made the time to do it.

Who has a home management binder? I made one a few weeks ago and was very excited to use it but I have a problem with concistency... Also, the book mentioned there were "Total Mom Planner Sheets" onthe Web site but I can't seem to locate them.

Does anyone mind if I journal "out loud" on this thread. I would love to see others ideas and things they are working on too! I just got my book and am getting started today!

I have one and I really love how it helps to organize my lists, goals and projects all in one place. If I'm organized I can handle more and get more accomplished. Mine is just a three ring binder with a pencil pouch that has a fine point dry erase marker, pen and a smallish notebook for lists and notes. It has my Cleaning Schedules, Menu, Goals Im working on in page protectors so I can write on them with the dry erase (like my goals are all listed with boxes next to them representing how many times per week I want to accomplish something, so when I do it I mark a box.) I also keep coupons and ads in there.

I'm probably going to end up being a week behind this whole book study, so don't mind me!

How's everyone doing? I'm joining the rest of you that have fallen a couple days behind. But, I am feeling a little more organized as a whole, so that's good.

I will hopefully be joining this thread next week. I just bought the book, but will not really have time to begin reading it until next week (unfortunately a funeral, family illnesses, and work obligations have filled every moment of the next few days).

I read that she's supposed to have a TV show beginning on PBS soon ("Help Me Hannah"), but I haven't seen an air date yet.

I'm on day 5 today. It has really motivated me to stop procrastinating and I love the motivation of "piggybacking tasks". It really is amazing how much you can accomplish in one day when you are motivated, energized from a morning workout and your mind is full of fresh, helpful ideas!
