Well, how has it been in the life of a S.H.E. (Sidetracked Home Executive)? For this S.H.E., not so good. What do I mean by this you might ask? It’s because my silly little brain does not have a helper mentality. It’s supposed to bug me and bug me to use my wonderful 3×5 card system. Yet does it? Nope! It leaves me totally stranded.
The whole “woe is me” petty party isn’t very fitting now is it? lol
In all seriousness, I have the hardest time remembering to use my card system that I worked so hard to get reorganized once again. I did great that first couple of weeks, where I was able to follow it on an overall basis. Then this went downhill in what seemed like a very quick time period. Now, it’s sitting on my nightstand next to my side of the bed collecting what I hope might be pixie dust :).
I will say that even though I haven’t been very good using the cards on a daily basis, a couple of routines I’ve been able to stick to have formed. One of those happens to be at night when Keith and I are headed upstairs for the night. Before we go I make a quick glance around the living room, dining room, and kitchen to see if there are any dishes left out. If there are, I take care of them. I make sure nothing is left in the sink. If the dishwasher is full enough, I start it up. In the morning if the dishwasher was started from the night before, I make sure to get that emptied first thing. For me this is huge as dishes, so not my thing.
Something else that has become a habit is to now do my laundry every Saturday. For awhile now we’ve always had Athena do her laundry every Saturday, but Keith and I didn’t. We had enough clothes that we didn’t need to do this. However, when it came time to do laundry, guess how much we had to do ALL AT ONCE? Let’s just say, we don’t look forward to laundry day in this house. However, it’s much more manageable now. It’s like, “duh, silly girl.”
So that’s the latest in this S.H.E’s life. Until next time.
Have you any S.H.E. moments to share? I’d love to hear them as well as any positives you have as well.
