Spring Break

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
Are any of you on Spring Break this week? Our friends go to private school, and they are on Spring Break. I decided we would be on Spring Break, too. The boys are enjoying a few days off from school and playing with their friends.
It’s nice for the teacher to have a break, too. Last week, we worked on my son’s bedroom by painting it. Over the weekend, they put down new flooring. So this week, I can spend a few minutes each day doing something to finish it up. By taking the week off from homeschooling, I can easily fit in a few minutes to do something in his room.
It is so freeing to break up a big project into small steps. I am not under a lot of pressure to finish this project up quickly. I can take time to think about what I want to do next. It is a different way of thinking compared to how I used to attack a big project.
You can do the same thing in your home. I help you each day by breaking down your zone mission for the day and your home blessing for the day. If you do those two things, you will start to see how easy it is to care for your home.
Your zone mission today is to sweep your front porch. If you did this yesterday, go ahead and start decluttering in your entryway. Remember, there is no wrong way to do the FlyLady system except to do nothing at all. If you have two minutes, you can do something.
Since it’s Plan and Play Day, take a few minutes to do some of your planning (menu, budget, etc.), and then do something you enjoy. Sit down and relax. Relaxing is an important part of your daily routine.
Your Zone Mission today is to sweep the front porch.
Your Home Blessing for today is to dust and vacuum.
My menu plan for Tuesday is chicken and vegetables.
Have a great day!
