Some Rules

Now that I'm beginning to feel like myself again, I need some rules for the next 40 days (or so).  So here, in no particular order, they are:
  • I will attempt to pray during the first nursing session that happens outside of my bed in the morning.
  • Taking a shower will be my first priority of the day.
  • I will do no more than one load of laundry a day.
  • I will attempt no more than one major cooking project a day—this isn't meant to include dinner, but if dinner comes to be a "major cooking project," then it does.  (For example, today I will limit myself to making the granola that Mary told us about and not also attempt a batch of homemade baked beans.)
  • As soon as I feel tired, I will grab some water or a snack (or possibly both) and get off my feet.
  • I will make every attempt to only do one errand at a time (obviously not always possible or even practical), and do it in the morning, before my almost-three-year-old has a chance to sneak a nap in the car.
  • Eating dinner as soon as my husband comes home will be a priority to get the kids (and myself!) the rest they need without naps and to give us some quiet time in the evening.
  • I will begin making or at least thinking about making dinner at 3PM.
OK, that's enough for now.  If I sound like I'm being too productive (and probably wearing myself out), please refer me back to this post.


  1. Sure! We can't have overly-productive people around here!

  2. These are great. I need to do some of these, too!

  3. Matushka, I'm not sure who wrote that last sentence. "Too productive"? CERTAINLY not me. I think I was thinking of the days where I think it wise to attempt about 4 different cook-from-scratch ideas an hour before dinner (and of course none of them ARE dinner). Or the days I try to do ALL the laundry at once. :P Not kind to me.
