I know that many of us on this list have heard of Flylady www.flylady.net and her wonderful way of approaching life with routines.
Our grandmothers had them, as did most generations before them, but most of our moms didn't, nor do we. It was so much easier to have Monday be laundry day, Tuesday ironing day, Weds errands, etc. Routines make like so much easier to deal with, you can just sort of go on auto-pilot with a lot of things. Deanna -- this is for you two, as your husband bravely serves his country. Thismight really help you fill in the gaps and plan for those 3 week fun times, and get through the inbetween stuff! Flylady's Control Journal pages would be phenomenal too - take a lot of worry away!View/Add Comments
