It's not working.
Last night, I listened to a great webinar given by Heidi St. John about managing my time better. I've actually heard her speak before, giving this same talk, at last year's NCHE convention. She's a great speaker. And she's right. I don't have a time management problem, I have a me management problem. And a problem of allowing my children to think they run this show, when in fact, they do not. Or perhaps they do...but they shouldn't.
And this mama has had enough.
So tomorrow morning, we're starting day one of a brand new schedule. And it's going to shock ALL OF US because for most of ten years, I've been a go with the flow kind of mom. Just whatever...it's cool...we're good. Nope. Not anymore. Because all five of us are suffering from it and it's MY fault.
I'm fixing it. It's not working and tomorrow I'm fixing it. We're having a family meeting tonight. There will be tears (I do not care, children, you are NOT entitled to unlimited video game time...deal with it!), there will be the law laid down. Tonight.
And tomorrow, it's gonna suck. For me, for the kids, just all around. But I don't care. It's broken and I can fix it. Call me Fix-it Felix because I'm getting done.
Ok, off to do something else after spending the last 45 minutes writing and color coding a brand new schedule. :)
