I’m carrying on with the regular mid-summer routine of summer school, instrument lessons, TaeKwonDo along with the, hopefully organized, chaos of preparing to leave on vacation. As my title states, I am attempting to continue to FLY (Finally Loving Yourself) through this week and this whole process.
One of my favorite organizational tools – lists, lists, color coded lists ColorNote on my Droid and my Kindle Fire helps tremendously. I have my lists made and color coded from previous years so I didn’t have to reinvent the wheel this time. I’m prepared to grocery with the kids tomorrow, or at least 2/3 of them. They can each pick their own healthy snack to take along as well as help decide on other food items.
We’ll stay overnight 2 nights on our way to our final destination, the annual CHASA (Children’s Hemiplegia & Stroke Association) retreat for families in Arlington, Texas. We’re counting on continental breakfast in hotels, packed lunch, and eating out for supper. We’ll have a large cooler, a bin with food and food-related items, another bin or box of other needed items such as flippers and floaties, and a suitcase and tote bag apiece for 5 people. I fully intend to continue to post organizational progress while traveling.
Meanwhile, my desk area gets encroached on so easily. Time for some bench clearing so I can move in my space. Also, keeping up with dishes and laundry makes for continuing good habits and allowing us to easily invite our pet sitter into the house.
Here’s the newly cleared bench by my desk.
