Do you have a weekly calendar?

Dear Friends,
Someone asked me last week about my weekly calendar. I think what she was asking was about each day having a certain thing that I do. If you have been reading my emails, you know that I share my Zone Mission, Home Blessing, and menu plan with you each day.
On Monday, I typically stay home, so I can start my week off with washing my sheets, doing the laundry that was not washed on Sunday, cook in bulk for first part of the week, and get school off to a good start for the week.
On Tuesday, I check my paper calendar with my digital calendar to make sure they have the same appointments down. I will do a quick review of my lesson planning. This is important if we have a science experiment coming up or a hands on activity. For my Home Blessing, i do a quick dust and vacuum. One of the boys will do his bedding.
On Wednesday, I will declutter paper that has found its way to my school area. I will also give the boys a decluttering mission in their rooms. This is the day I like to schedule appointments, when possible. My Home Blessing is to wipe the windows and mirrors. Another boy will do his bedding.
On Thursday, I will start taking inventory of what is in the fridge that needs to be used at dinner. I will jot down items we have run out of. I will start my menu planning for the next week. My Home Blessing is to declutter magazines. I also added paper to this mission, since I always have paper to declutter. It only takes a few minutes if you are consistent with getting paper out of your house. Someone will do his laundry and wash bedding.
On Friday, I finish off my menu planning, make a grocery list, and pay bills. My Home Blessing is to take out the trash, sweep, and mop. (I don’t have carpet, so no vacuuming.) The boys help with the floors and trash. The last person in the house will do bedding and their laundry. I will do my grocery shopping in the afternoon.
Saturday is family fun day. We try to plan something each week. If it is winter, we typically have an easy meal and play some board games. In the warm weather, we usually do something outside. I usually do laundry on Saturday, but it is not an all-day event since I have done laundry throughout the week.
Sunday is church day. We try to rest and relax. I do some of my writing for the week on Sunday. I don’t do a lot of laundry on Sunday, but I have had situations where I had to do a load or two. I will sometimes do a load of towels on Sunday night.
Most of my weeks flow like this. I am not a slave to my schedule. I do have my routines, and if we have something that takes us out of the house for the day, I do a quick, basic routine that day.
Do you have certain days of the week that you do a specific thing?
Your Zone Mission today is to declutter in your closet.

Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe your windows and mirrors.

My menu plan for Wednesday is chicken alfredo.

Have a great day!
