How do I get organized?

Since Elliot birth I haven't been able to get back into a good routine....I am so disorganized. I definitely don't have a house of order!! I feel like I'm drowning in all my mess. My home is a crazy disaster. My work is out of control and I'm falling behind on deadlines. I just can't figure out what's off and how to fix it.

When I do...I will blog about:

Elliot rolling over.

Our hike to flat top in the snow.

Jed going to night shifts, and me being left alone with Elliot for 4 days.

Our train ride with Heath from Talkeetna.

Me being released from young women's then being called again to the same calling.

Elliot's dairy allergy and my interesting food choices lately.

The 4.8 earthquake we had this morning.

Maybe I'll get to it, maybe not. But if you have tips of how to organize my life let me know.


  1. Ummm no good ideas sorry!! Start small and then move to the larger things! When you figure it out let me know lol

  2. Clark and I take a couple minutes and make lists every day. Lists of everything we'd like to get done (shower, make dinner, blog, watch a TV show, feed the baby, etc.) and then star or underline (or otherwise emphasize) what HAS to get done (it's been two days since I've showered, it's been two weeks since the toilet was cleaned, etc.) Sometimes it's a little sad what we can done, but other days it's great. Just do little things to remind yourself that you're doing a good job. :)

  3. Even though I don't have kids, I think I have a helpful suggestion. Say "no" to things that you have a choice on. There was a semester in school where I was going crazy, and I realized that there were several things that I thought I had to do, but I realized I could say "no" to them. It made a world of difference.

  4. I liked the last two comments. I definitely am not organized, but I do have certain days that I do things like laundry, grocery shopping and vacuuming. I also try to plan my dinners out in advance, that usually helps. Also when blog I usually do a lot of posts at once and then set them to post within a few days of each other. That waynit looks like I am on top of things when I'm really not :)
