#69 ~ Routine

Oh how I love having a routine once again!

The summer seemed to be chaos when there was no scheduled activities for us, I could have made a schedule but I wouldn't have followed it, I need to work with someone else's. With Ivy in Kindergarten 4 days a week and Anna and I attending playgroup twice a week it is enough to help make me stable and happy!

My councilor knows how much I like/need routines, so she tried to get me to write out what I was going to do a day by the hour (8am-wake and dress, 9am-feed and dress girls, 10am-feed animals etc etc) but that was way more then I could do. If I didn't get something done in it allotted hour then I felt like a failure and I didn't want to continue with the schedule.

Also to add to my weekly routine, today I will be attending a Wellness group here in town. The program with be for an hour every Tuesday morn for 8 weeks. The neighbours E&D will be looking after the girls, I should be back in time to put Ivy on the bus for kindergarten.

On a other note, the girls have not been feeling well lately. I've been sending Ivy to school with a cough and this past weekend Anna came down with a sinus cold which this morning I can feel is trying to attack me as well. I blame school for these new germs. I truly hope the whole school year doesn't end up with us getting sick one after another. that would suck!

Hope the girls will get to feeling better... also that you don't come down with it if you haven't already do so... Hugs to you all...

Hello, lovely Leslie! So, do tell me if you still eat peanut butter and onion sandwiches!

Routines are good... took me a long time to figure that one out. They are stabilizing.

Here's a note-- it probably won't work for the girls (because it's gross) but if you can handle it, try it! If you swallow 1-3 drops of oregano oil when you feel a cold coming on, it will kill the cold germs. It really works!
