Life can become mundane and overwhelming. With a little organization, you can take back your life and have fun again.

Are you a busy, homeschooling mom? You have a house to take care of: chores. cleaning. meals. You want responsible kids. Your kids might say, “Mom, you’re no fun!” But, what do they expect when you are so busy teaching, parenting, and homemaking?

Yes, you need to be intentional, but let’s face it – you need to have fun, too. Oh! and you just realized you haven’t had date night in nearly six months!

Here’s what you can do:

Take Time for Yourself

Are you a Mom Who Forgot How to have Fun? Schedule “me” time if you have to! Find joy in every day activities. Why work so hard to get things done if you aren’t going to enjoy the process or end result?

Make Time for Your Marriage

Who doesn’t like some time away from their children? Whether you have a standing weekly date night, monthly, quarterly or something in between, parents should always take the time to get away, even if just for a few hours at dinner. Here’s a date night planning kit to get you started.

Delegate

When you relinquish some responsibility to the kids, you can have fun WITH them when the work is done.

Getting your children to help around the house can be like pulling teeth, I hear ya and I get it! That is why I make it my mission to bring you easy and fun printables to help out with mundane life events… ya know, like chores!

Be Intentional

Sometimes we waste our time because we are not intentional. Here are 5 practical ways to be intentional.

Being overwhelmed is a feeling, I think, that most of us have felt at one point or another in our parenting journey. Each day we have different tasks to accomplish. We must see to our children, tend to our husbands, keep our home, and ensure that everyone is clothed and fed. Add to that list that we also need to be taken care of. It just all seems to pile up on top of each other. Let me tell you something, there is hope and you have help!

To make these tasks and processes easier, you should make them part of your routines. Routines are the simple processes we subconsciously follow each day.

It only takes a few minutes to create a productive, efficient, and helpful daily routine to get you through the day. Don’t let the day happen to you. Take charge of your day!

If you wish you could get your life organized… Feed your family. Clean your house. Work on a project. Make time for yourself. Spend time with your family. Manage your family’s budget.

You need a plan to pull it all together.
