I found my planner while searching for some cookie paddles for my Bosch mixer on www.marmeedear.com
To see an image of the planner and more info about it, go here.
I recommend this if you are a home keeper. There are charts and places for menu planning, home school planning, and a list for everything.

Set a bed time and stick to it!
May seem easy, but I think this one will be difficult for me. ;) We get up every morning at 4:30 and I try to be in bed by 9:30 although many days its 10:30 or later...like tonight.
I'll be trying to stick to my 9:30 routine and see how it goes for one week.
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

Today we are learning that we can do anything for 15 min. Set your timer and clean for 15 minutes.
Today we are going to add another page to our Control Journals. We are going to call this our Inspirational Page. On this page I want you to spend 15 minutes writing down some of your favorite inspirational phrases. Some of mine are; You can do anything for 15 minutes, Housework done incorrectly still blesses your family and You can’t organize clutter; you can only get rid of it. I know you have others that you love. Use this page as a place to write them down when you see something that touches your heart.

Organizing the canning pantry. I put up 36 pints last week so I needed to make more room. This is what happened. ;)
Annabelle wearing one of her Christmas presents Jena (a dear friend of ours) got her.
Here you are; you have been FLYing for a whole week. I am so proud of you. Lets review your new habits. I am going to break them down into what you do each morning and what you do each evening.
- Get up and get dressed to lace up shoes; fixing your hair and face- Looking at your posted reminders in the kitchen and bathroom- Reading 2 minutes of reminders- Recognizing the negative voices and changing them; YOU ARE FLYing NOW!- Put out your Hot Spots for 2 minutes
Before Bed Routine
- Keep your sink shining- Lay out your clothes for tomorrow- Put out your Hot Spot (I have to do this twice a day) It makes me smile in the morning!
Over the last week we have introduced you to our reminders and the basis of our routines. As you establish these habits it will become easy to add another habit for you to practice.
Today I want you to find an old three ring binder and just put some paper in it. Then at the top of one page write Morning Routine and on the top of another page write Before Bed Routine all in pencil. This is a working document; do not allow your perfectionism to interfere with the process. Now you can write your simple routines on each page.

We are writing down what we are doing everyday. So far that is:
- Getting Dressed to lace up shoes- Keeping our sink shining- Reading 2 minutes of Reminders
Today we are writing down what we hear. You know those "voices" that come and go throughout your day. The ones that tell you your not doing enough, or getting no where in you cleaning. Write those down...all of them and replace the negative words with nice positive words.

Today you are doing what we have already done.
-Getting up and dressing to lace up shoes
-Keeping your sink shining
-Reading your reminders for 2 minutes.

Since my last post we have managed to lose the charger to the camera...again. I am not sure if we are misplacing it or if Annabelle is running off with it. So we have no recent pictures to post, although we did get a family portrait taken and I'll have that up soon. Until then....
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas.

After I "work out" I'll cozy up next to the fire and read from the good word!...Best part of my day. I hope you all have a great morning.

One happy family again, finally! Levi is still gazing at him..LOL. He did that all night.
Hmmm... He kept doing this for a good 10 minutes.

We have been reading......Daddy has all the good books.
And shopping. I just love the carts that seat two!
This is the closet under the stairs. It was full of sewing things. I took them all out to make room for a small "stock pile". Now that we have over 150lbs. flour, 10 gallons of oil, and way too much other stuff to list. I am feeling pretty good. God is so good! He has provided so well for our little family, especially considering the times. That little closet is now full and still growing as I keep moving food from the garage into it.
