Using Positive Words – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Do you use positive words with yourself and with your family each day? Using positive affirmations builds up others. If you struggle with negative thoughts, use a journal to write down positive things. Use a Thesaurus (or an app with a Dictionary and Thesaurus) to help you find new words to use.

Start using these words with your children, and use them with yourself and your spouse, too. We live in a world of negativity. Let’s be the change to bring some positive affirmations into the lives of those we love.

When you hear yourself say, “I can’t,” look for ways to make it possible. If you encounter a roadblock to your goals, look for another way to get there.

Take a look at your lesson plans and progress for this school year. Are you on track to reach your goals? Do you need to re-assess anything? I have found that some years, we may move slower in math as new concepts are not always easy to grasp. I have made decisions on how to best finish our math lessons around this time of the year when we have a slower paced year.

My goal in teaching my children is to ignite a love of learning and teach them in a way that they understand it (mastery teaching). This means we move along at the student’s pace. We can move fast, or we can move slow. It is a beautiful part of the homeschool journey.

How do you feel about your school year?

Have a great day!

Thinning Out Your Closet – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool
                    
The past few weeks have been warm in the South, and it has me thinking about decluttering some of the winter clothes I did not wear this year. You probably have things in your closet that you did not wear this winter either.

My boys have been eating a lot over the winter, and I can tell they are growing. Today I am going to spend 15 minutes pulling things from my closet that I did not wear, and I am going to ask the boys to do the same thing. My boys can put a pair of pants in the laundry, and by the time they put them on again, the pants are too short!

By thinning down what is in the closet, we will have more room to put laundry away. It will make it faster and easier, too. I put my laundry away daily when I hang it up. Once I got into this habit, I realized how fast it can be to put my clothes away.

Tell me where you have issues in dealing with clothes in your home?

Have a wonderful day!

Are your flat surfaces bringing you down? Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

             

Do cluttered surfaces in your bedroom effect your mood? My answer to this is, “Yes.”

You may not realize it if you are used to having lots of items on your flat surfaces in your bedroom. That seems to be a catch-all place for things.

When you clean before you have company, you put items in your bedroom.

When you don’t have a specific place for an item, it often ends up on a flat surface in your bedroom.

When you need to sort things, you use your flat surfaces.

When you mean to fold that load of clothes that you dumped on your bed during the day, it ends up on your flat surfaces.

Let’s spend a few minutes each day in our master bedrooms. Let’s declutter items. Let’s find places for the items that have found their way into our bedrooms. Let’s put all the laundry away.

You can give your children missions to declutter in their bedrooms, too.

You will sleep better and enjoy a peaceful bedroom!

27 Fling Boogie Today – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

 

 

Today I am going to talk about a topic that is going to be difficult for you to hear. Do you have homeschool books sitting on your bookshelf or around your house that you are not using?

With multiple age children, I held onto books to use with more than one child. For many books, this worked really well. For other books, I did not use them again. I was blessed with 6 children who each have a different personality and way of learning things. What worked for my oldest did not necessarily work for my other children.

My second child was an auditory learner and hands on learner. I had to buy different phonics books and used other resources to teach him how to write. He was pencil-resistant because of sensory issues, so he did not fill out a lot of worksheets.

Some of the books I used to teach him in his early years did not work for the next child who was a visual learner, like me. I was able to use many of the materials from my oldest child, but I still found that there were books that worked better for his educational needs.

There were three more children to teach after these three, so you can see where I am going with this. I have to purge books regularly to keep it under control. I try to share the books we don’t use anymore with homeschool friends, and I pass things on to other educators, too. I do not let myself feel guilty for passing books along. I love blessing others.

Your mission today is to do a 27 Fling Boogie, and I want to challenge you to let go of 27 homeschool books or resources that you are not using any longer.

Have a great weekend!

Using a Paper Calendar – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Tell me how you use a calendar in your home. My paper calendars are like a historical record of my life. I keep them from year to year. I write down important events, birth dates, appointments, menu plans, and more. I do keep a digital calendar on my phone, but it is mostly for appointments and events. I don’t have birthdays on it. I don’t add a lot of extra stuff on it. It is just a way for me to keep track of appointments, so I can schedule things and not over-book myself.

A paper calendar can also be used to help you plan your school days. In North Carolina, I have to check off a sheet provided by the state for 180 educational days. My paper calendar helps me keep track of field trips. I count those as educational days. I typically do not take off for snow days, but I do give the children time off from school if they are sick. My paper calendar is an important part of my school records.

My paper calendar is posted on my refrigerator for everyone to see. This helps us know at a glance when an appointment is coming up. I spend a few minutes each week updating the paper calendar from my digital calendar. I typically do this when I am doing my weekly menu planning. This is my “office” time.

Sometimes I do pull out a previous year’s calendar to check a date or refer to an appointment date. We think that we will remember things, but as time passes, we forget things. A paper calendar is a nice way to look back at past events. When I was pregnant, I tracked my weight and blood pressure on my calendar. This was important because I suffered from high blood pressure during pregnancy. My blood pressure would get dangerously high, and I would retain water. My calendar was my health log during those times.

Children need to know how to use a calendar. By having a paper calendar on display, you can teach them from a young age how to use the calendar. You can teach them about the days of the week and the months of the year. You can teach them to count from a calendar. You can use it as a count down for a special event.

If you have not been using a paper calendar because you have a digital calendar, I want you to think about the ways you can start using a paper calendar again.

Have a wonderful day!

How’s Your Laundry Room? Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

How does your laundry room look? Let’s spend 15 minutes decluttering it today. Your laundry room is an important place in your home. It is easier to process your laundry, if you can get to the washer and dryer easily.

With a large family, I had to refine my laundry process as our family grew. All of you know how much laundry little ones can make. My process of doing laundry once a week had to change from when I was first married. Laundry was not my favorite thing to do at that time. I didn’t mind starting a load or moving it to the dryer. I just did not enjoy folding, hanging, and putting away. I am pretty sure I was not alone.

When we had two children, I could “get by” with doing laundry every other day. As babies continued to bless our home, I got into the habit of doing laundry daily. I did well with getting it done. But I used a lot of baskets to “hold” the clean laundry.

The laundry room quickly filled with baskets of clean laundry. This made washing laundry and moving it to the dryer a balancing act.

My husband made a place for me to hang the clean laundry. I kept it full. You know what I mean when I say that I pushed as many clothes hangers as I could on that rod.

Then, I started following the FlyLady. As I learned my routines, I had to work on my poor laundry habits.

What I learned was that we had too many clothes. I also learned that we had to put laundry away as soon as it was finished drying. It took time to declutter and thin down the amount of clothes we had. It took time to develop the habit of putting the laundry away as soon as it was done. With persistence, I learned this routine.

Today, my whole family has all of the steps of doing laundry down pat. My laundry room is clean and decluttered. It is a happy place. It is a peaceful place, and it is a great place to pray while I fold and hang laundry.

Have a great day!

Love Yourself and Love Others – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool
                   
Are you taking care of yourself, or are you too busy to take care of you?

Many years ago, I learned a hard lesson that I had to love myself and take care of myself. A sick, unhealthy person cannot take care of those she loves. My priorities are to love God, love my husband, love my children, and love others. I also have to love myself enough to rest, exercise, eat healthy, and drink adequate water daily.

Matthew 22:36-40 (KJV)
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.


Ephesians 5:29 (KJV)
29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:


Taking care of you is important, and it is the easiest thing in the world to put yourself last. The demands on a homeschool mom are many. If you ever sat down and listed all of the “jobs” a homeschool mom does, it is a long list.

Look at your daily schedule and your routines. Do you have self-care factored into your daily schedule?

What are some self-care things you can do?

Here are a few ideas:

Get 8 hours of sleep each night
Drink 80 oz of water a day (soft drinks and caffeinated drinks do not count)
Eat a balanced diet with protein, fruits, and vegetables
Have 15 minutes of purposeful movement a day (walking, exercise DVDs)
Relax and turn off electronics (have a set time to turn them off daily)
Set up appointments for your physical and bloodwork annually

Send me an email with some of your ideas to take care of yourself daily?

Have a wonderful day!

Small steps lead to big changes – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

            

Small steps each day can lead to big changes in your life and in your home. Our society has an “instant gratification” attitude. This spills over into our homes and homeschools. We start to want everything done now. This leads to burn out.

Using routines and breaking things down into manageable steps leads to success. Not procrastinating because we don’t want to spend hours cleaning and decluttering will be a new way of thinking. Procrastination is a by-product of perfectionism and being burned out.

Teaching your children at home is a big job. By dividing up decluttering and Home Blessings throughout the week, you can preserve your weekends for fun and family time.

Your children can help you with your home, too. They will eventually grow up and move out, and you want them to know how to take care of themselves. You can train them now in small steps to clean the house, cook, do laundry, menu plan, grocery shop, and more. I have a monthly maintenance schedule that we follow to change the air filters for our heating and cooling system.

The boys know how to check the oil and tire pressure on our vehicles weekly. They also help me clean it out each week. The goal is to get everything out of the van each time we get home, but somehow, there are always church bulletins and papers floating around in the van.

As you can see, I have developed daily, weekly, and monthly routines with my children. As I talk to my young adult children, I see where they have kept many of the routines they learned at home to their homes. That is the goal!

Small, achievable steps will lead to success.

This week, we are working in the Main Bathroom and one extra room.

Moving Time For Mom – Getting Organized

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

 

 

Happy Friday!

Getting dressed down to your lace up shoes each morning serves several purposes. Putting your shoes on first thing in the morning tells your body and brain that it is time to be productive. Putting them on also helps take away one excuse you have on daily exercise. Putting on shoes also helps your feet stay healthy. There are so many benefits to wearing good, lace up shoes throughout the day.

Let’s talk about the benefits of daily movement time for you. Walking and purposeful movement helps your circulation. It helps you with weight maintenance. It helps you feel better physically and mentally. It can help you with healthy bones.  It can help reduce stress.

Over the years, I have done a lot of different types of exercise. When you have small children, you have to find ways to exercise that works with their schedule. I used DVD’s in the Living Room for years. The little ones could watch from the pack and play safely. As they got bigger, I would find toys and games that occupied them for 15 to 30 minutes. I could get up before them and exercise before they woke up. (Though this is hard to do sometimes if they are not sleeping through the night.) I have exercised in the Living Room during naptime.

As my children got older, I could do more kinds of exercise outdoors with them. We have gone hiking, bike riding, play basketball in the driveway, and more. Kids need daily exercise, too.

Four years ago, I started running. I wanted to lose weight and reduce my stress, and I decided I wanted to run. I was not great at it, and I am still not the fastest. But I am so happy with my progress. I feel good. My weight is managed. My doctor has reduced my medications. I have more energy. My kids run with me sometimes. Mostly, I run without them. I plan my schedule in a way that allows me to run daily and still do all the other things I have to do in a day.

If you are not doing any purposeful movement daily, start with walking for 15 minutes. You will start to feel better as you do it consistently.

Have a great weekend!

Taming the Paper Monster

Getting Organized:
In your home and homeschool

Have you noticed that each Thursday, you have a Home Blessing that includes decluttering paper and magazines? Since we homeschool, I know papers are a big part of our lives. It’s like the dust bunnies that live under the sofa or bed. Papers are in abundance and seem to multiply overnight.

I have a few tricks that I have developed to help me over the years with paper clutter.

Sort the mail when it comes into the house.

  • File bills
  • File important papers
  • Shred papers with your name and address
  • Toss junk mail that does not have your address

Review school work daily.

  • Toss the school papers you don’t need
  • File the papers and tests that you need to keep
  • Let go of school materials you don’t use
  • Keep one box of art keepsakes and share the rest with loved ones

What are other sources of paper in your home that you need to work on?

Have a wonderful day!
