Wrapping Up August with Zone Missions

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
This week we are wrapping up the month of August. It’s hard to believe that we are on the cusp of September after a long, hot summer. We are going to detail clean and declutter in the Living Room this week. If you have a Family Room, you can do the missions in there as well.
Here are you missions for the week:
Zone 5 Missions: The Living Room
Monday - Go sofa and chair diving
Tuesday – Declutter flat surfaces and dust
Wednesday - Dust tops of doors, curtains, and ceiling fan
Thursday – Dust or vacuum baseboards
Friday – Hot Spot Fire Drill
Set your timers and then take a break when it goes off!
Your Morning Routine can be difficult to master if you have small children because of the interruptions. Write these 6 steps down on a note card or sticky note. Keep it handy. When you get interrupted, you can quickly find your place in the routine and finish it.
Here is the order I use for my Morning Routine:
1)      Get up and make the bed immediately
2)      Get dressed down to the shoes
3)      Check the calendar
4)      Check the menu plan – What’s for dinner?
5)      Start a load of laundry
6)      Swish and swipe (done immediately after my morning shower)
Here’s your recap of the Weekly Zone Missions.
On Monday, go sofa and chair diving. This is a fun mission for children if you let them keep any loose change that they find.
On Tuesday, declutter the flat surfaces in your living room and detail dust.
On Wednesday, do dust along the tops of doors, curtains, and ceiling fan. If you have bookshelves, dust along the tops of them as well.
On Thursday, dust or vacuum along the baseboards and behind the furniture in your Living Room.
On Friday, clear any further cluttered areas in your Living Room.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wash the sheets.
Your Zone Mission for Monday is to go sofa and chair diving.
My menu plan for Monday is my son’s 15th birthday, so he will be choosing the menu for tonight.
Have a blessed day!
