Summer is traditionally the time I organize my life for the coming year. Because I homeschool, summer is the time I plan our coming school year. This year, I am on a mission to reorganize my whole life!
Sometimes life gets in the way of our plans, right? That’s been the case for me for quite a while now. In our crazy hectic life, our schedule is constantly flowing, moving, changing. It drives me crazy. I like routine. I like each day to pretty much be the same. Unfortunately, life hasn’t cooperated over the last few years.
This year, I want consistency, even in the chaos. My home – down to the closets and drawers – needs a makeover. Life has been so hectic, I have found myself wallowing in the chaos to long! Something has to change and I want to get on with it. Now.
Have you ever felt that way? Do you think I can get my whole life organized in six weeks? Or at least be on my way back to a household that runs smoothly? I plan to try my best!
Over the coming four weeks life will go on as usual. We have lots of family birthday parties, three grandchildren coming from Michigan to spend the month, trips planned, homeschooling to plan, food to cook, laundry to catch up on…. You get the idea. But I really need to get my calm in the chaos back! So, despite all of my wonderful summer family plans, I plan to make organizing my life a top priority.
Are you looking for the calm in your chaos? Join me! June 18 – July 27, 2012

Homemaking is so much more than cleaning a house, cooking food, and making sure your family has clothes to wear. Homemaking is about nurturing a spirit of warmth, comfort, and love in your home.
