I’ve been feeling lazy lately. Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazzzzzzzy. Like, roll out of bed at 7:25 even though school starts for the kids at 8 o’clock kind of lazy. Ridic. Who does this sort of thing?
Not my friend, Becki. Girlfriend wakes up at 4:30 every morning and jogs for, like, eight hours. She is also a master of organizing cool disciple charts and ideas. We spent the morning sneaking one of her ideas as our own. Let it just be said that my kitchen floor has never been washed by two children twice in two hours. Today it was, thanks to Becki’s brilliance. Please let this method last longer than all four hundred and two of my other discipline chart ideas did.
The rest of the day was spent organizing old papers and calendars and kids school projects into fancy little boxes. While hunting through all of our mishappen files of long-ago memories, I came across the folder I created 8-years ago, when my twins were little babies and I spent a whole year being anything but lazy.
Fly Lady’s organizational ideas got me through that year, and as I flipped through my notebook, and daily routine, and weekly schedule, and monthly recipe guide, I was awful impressed with myself. I’d really pulled together some serious organization skillz. Mad serious. I reminded myself of this today when I laid out the schedule for tomorrow morning. I can do this better, I said. Which is now, officially, the plan. To get more organized in schedule and paperwork and everything.
But, it’s going to have to be lazy organization. Because I don’t like the kind of organization that has me clipping coupons for thirty-four hours every day and scrubbing cobwebs with toothbrushes from electrical outlets.
Still, organization takes time and I’m ready to get back to that place of having all my ducks in a row. Because, waking up at 7:25 in the morning does not give you much time to line those ducks up before rushing off to another busy day.
What are your wild and wicked secrets for organizing your life? I must know them all. Now. I’ll make you Lazy Breakfast Pizza if you promise to share.
Ugh. I gotta get off this lazy boat.
Crispy Sausage Breakfast Pizza
