One Reason Monday Morning is the Hardest

It’s because the weekend’s over and there are lots of decisions to make!

Every Monday morning I’m overwhelmed until we get a grip on the week’s meals, chores (because we rotate them), and family-specific decisions. So we made a one-page form that covers most of them, and once it’s filled in, we almost coast through the week! We know what’s for dinner each day, and we know who’s cooking it.

We know who has laundry this week and who has the dishes. And all the “small” things (like music lessons, jiu jitsu, etc.) are jotted down.

There’s just something about being decisive that frees the mind!

Everybody knows what’s going on and when. Give it a try this morning – all you need is a piece of paper, a pen, and a refrigerator magnet!

(Contact me if you’d like an Excel version of what’s on our refrigerator so you can adapt it to your family!)

Hi there! I'm Becky Muldrow, wife to my high school sweetheart, Gene, and mom to 10 great kids! I love spending my days homeschooling the last 4 of them and sharing (on my website and at homeschool conferences) how we do high school differently - by replacing it with college.
