Coping With Stress

Hi there everybody! I hope that you’ve had a wonderful week. Mine was… challenging. I had some changes at work that I am still trying to adjust to, and my poor oldest is sick with bronchitis. The hubs is getting ready to head out for the week, so I’ll be spending the day getting him ready to go and making sure that he doesn’t forget anything.

This week, while coping with stress, I’ve been having fun playing with the hubs’ coffee thermos, and letting him know how I feel about him each and every morning… It’s a lot of fun (he thinks it’s hilarious too) and as long as it’s done with a dry erase marker, it just wipes right off!

Happy New Year!

Happy new year everybody! I hope you all are getting their new year off to a wonderful start! I know it is customary to start the year with a bunch of resolutions that will be completely forgotten about in a few weeks, but I am going to start my year with goals instead.

Organizing Your Family Calendar

A family calendar is the best way to coordinate all the comings and goings of every single member of your family, and to make sure you aren’t, as a whole, spread too thin, and get enough family together time. That’s why this week’s challenge is organizing your family calendar and to keep and actually get in the habit of using it on a daily basis.

Organizing Your Family Calendar

This is the perfect time of year to begin this challenge because the New Year is almost upon us, and you may need a new calendaring system for the coming year anyway.

So, while you’re in the store buying a new calendar (or making something you’re personalizing for yourself) keep the following steps in mind to get the most out of this useful tool.

Are you new here? This week’s challenge, all about keeping a family calendar, is one of the challenges in the 52 Week Home Organization Challenge. (Click the link to learn how to join us for free for future and past challenges if you aren’t already a regular reader).

I Am “THAT” Parent…

Alicia- What kind of parent am I?So, working in a school, I get to see all kinds of parents… The parent that walks in every day and has a hard time letting go, the parent that can’t be reached for anything that goes wrong, the parent that thinks their child is ALWAYS in the right, and so many more. It wasn’t until working at the school that I began to really evaluate what kind of parent I am, and how my actions may possibly affect how my kids are treated.

Soooo… Continue reading I Am “THAT” Parent…

Organizing Kids’ Bedrooms

Your challenge this week is organizing kids’ bedrooms. This week’s task is important not only so these rooms in your home are not an eye sore, but also so your kids can really use and enjoy their rooms to their fullest.

Organizing Kids Bedrooms

All of us want a space to call our own, and whether our children share a room, or have one all to themselves, somewhere in that room is most likely “their” space. This week our goal is to make that space both functional and fun to be in.

Just like with last week’s challenge the steps below may be something you do all on your own if you have very young children. However, if you have older children these steps really should be taken together with your child, because your kids need to be involved with organizing their own rooms.

Are you new here? This kids’ bedroom organizing challenge is part of the 52 Week Home Organization Challenge. (Click the link to learn how to join us for free for future and past challenges if you aren’t already a regular reader).
