Making a Little Order Wthin all this Chaos

Our house is just chaos right now. It's a complete mess, I don't get much done, and the little ones have no structure. I'm serious, we tend to wake up around 11 and don't go to bed until 1a.m. which is not fun when sometimes I have to be at work at 7 in the morning. A new project I have created for my household is to create a routine and structure to our days. I was reading articles about how routine and structure can help children, they will learn what to expect every day and what is expected of them.

My first plan is to create a morning routine of just getting up, having breakfast, cleaning up, and getting dressed for the day, all without TV. I don't have a specific wake up time just trying to create a specific wake up routine. I also want to keep up with a 15 minute pick up for a few days until the mess is not as big.

I'm hoping creating daily routines will lead to weekly routines, like meal planning, weekly goals, and maybe a weekly blog post lol.

Setting up pictures

I didn't realize, until I started posting lots of  pictures on my craft blog, how difficult it was to set up the shot. I mean the lighting is not great where I'm at in my little crafting corner. Also making sure my desk is decently cleaned. Most of the time I just shove what I don't need into the corner out of camera range and then it creeps back afterward. Also trying to come up with new blog posts when I'm not actually working on a project. It cost money to make projects and I only get paid every two weeks so I'm worried that on the craft blog that I'm going to be doing a post every day while I have material and then it might go a week or two without a post. I could do tutorials and a sewing machine review but I only have one sewing machine. A discussion of notions is in order and basic needs to get started sewing. I've got ideas just need to get off my lazy backside and do them.

Work and Blogging

Work has really made it hard for me to blog. That and lack of motivation to do so. I don't know what to write most of the time. I rarely keep up with my goals and I rarely track what I read. My garden is growing, I've got a pumpkin and a zucchini already, also the blackberry bush is coming to an end of it's production, the birds are getting most of it. I've lost 12 pounds since I started working outside the home. I've also started eating better. Now one of my big goals is to stop staying up all night, which is hard when you have a toddler that wants to stay up all night. I need to come up with a plan for this blog but not now it's 12:30 and I need to get my toddler to sleep.
