I have not been one to make New Year's resolutions in the past. I think it is because I didn't have two kids thrown into the mix! This year, I am making some resolutions! The past few months (as evidenced here) have been overwhelming to say the least and I knew a lot of it was my own fault. The rest was just adjusting to adding another person to our family!
My main goal in 2013 is to become more ORGANIZED. And not in a, throw it in the closet where I can't see it kind of way. I want to have a spot for everything. I am going to do this one room at a time so that I don't get overwhelmed and give up. I'd like to allow at least 1 to 2 weeks per room so that I am not spending all my time trying to do it in a hurry. Some rooms won't need that long. Others might need longer!
I have started a cleaning schedule, an exercise schedule and I have in my mind a basic schedule for what Connor's day will look like. I know a lot of people laugh at me and my schedule I had for Connor as a baby and now Cade, but it really is the only way I can function!
Cleaning schedule: I have actually adopted the cleaning schedule from Clean Mama (love her tips) and started that this week. So far, I have loved it! I have felt on top of things and have had more free time (read: time to play with the boys that I don't feel like I need to be doing housework) than I have in months! I make sure the house is the way I want it before I go to bed at night so that I have a clean slate in the morning. I know that sounds like common sense, and it is, but I had not been implementing it and it was showing!

What about y'all? Do you use schedules or do you think I am nuts?!
