StartingOver86 is wondering how life keeps getting away from me!
3 Daily life running smoothly! Things are a bit cluttered, chaotic and overwhelming right now. It’s hard to think about or plan the future when your always in “catch up” mode! We need routines. We need cleaning schedules. We need a functioning calander. We need good habits incorporated. I know everyone keeps recommending flylady and I did look into it but I can’t seem to make things stick. Maybe I’m being too perfectionistic about it and I definitely didn’t start with the simple approach! So maybe if I break it down and do it one thing at a time as the site suggest there can finally be a bit more order around here!
4 Money. There’s at least two other things I would rather be in this spot but I have to stop pushing the financial aspect of life aside. We have goals, needs and futures to think about. Like a house, college funds and retirements! I have no clue about anything but savings accounts and we can’t seem to keep our savings account numbers up. So I guess the goal is to learn as much as possible and implement a plan for 2012 instead of just winging it!
So #1. Faith, spirituality and God. We have been going to church. I’m looking for time to devote to studying the bible. I want to practice being more thankful instead of rushing through life.
#2. Kids. I honestly feel like the more quality time wont come until our homelife is running smoother!
#3. Homelife. Start applying Flylady goals and stop being lazy about the little chores! I know they accumulate so I need to start doing them when the need arrises!
#4. Money. Think I am going to start with a debt pay-off plan and some budgeting. Thankfully (knock on wood) our debt is under $1000.00 now. Actually, I think it’s under $500.00 and consist of mostly medical bills. Personal loans though are almost $5,000.00 from all the way back when we started our family unexpectidly. Thank God for my family helping out but I hate “owing” people!
