We went camping the 2nd weekend in June. Mosquitos were so horrible that we ended up using our free motel night on Sat night. What a blessed relief. But we did have fun and were blessed!

How can I get it all Done?

Since the beginning of the year I have been part of a book study on FB. We are going through Large Family Logistics by Kim Brenneman. It is a basic how-to manual. One I would have loved to have years ago when I had lots of littles. Growing up as a youngest child doesn't always equip you with everything you need to know and I needed lots of help in management. This book is GREAT for that. It could also be renamed the House Keeping book for Dummies. Written from a Christian perspective, lots of good food for thought and help, from attitude to the nuts and bolts of living and getting it all done.

In Chapter 6: Where does the time go?, she suggests writing down everything you do in a days time. As it happens. I knew that would be to much for me. I would never get anything done because I would be to distracted by writing things down. So I came up with an alternative that I liked better. Every hour I wrote down what I had just accomplished. It was so much easier. I am attaching that form for you in pdf, for you to try and see if it works for you. http://freepdfhosting.com/43eee6dc46.pdf
