Motivate Me Monday! My Schedule! Link Up Yours!

Happy Monday! Well, even though my MMM post for today is about my schedule, I have to say that I am truly super motivated about MY BLOGAVERSARY PARTY starting Wednesday! P-A-R-T-Y! Woo hoo! (Check out the AMAZING prize list here!) Okay, back to priorities and a schedule (you know, the fun stuff). First of all, let me show just one reason why I need to have focused priorities and a schedule:

Yep, that's the dirty laundry...and not even all of it. Scary, I know. But, I shall have no fear - I will defeat this enemy! What is my weapon? Take a look:


We started following this schedule last week and it has been very helpful so far. I know it's super simple, but I need simple! I'm a simple kind of gal.
Alrighty, I'm ready to see your priorities/schedules - I just love ripping off, uh, I mean, being inspired by your ideas! Do share!
Your Turn!
  • Share some advice, wisdom, practical applications, tips you've learned, etc. that you think would benefit and motivate others.

Wow, bravo! A schedule! Great idea. And 7pm is kids bedtime?!?!? I can barely get everything wrapped up to have my daughter in bed by 8pm. Ahhhhh, 7pm sounds WONDERFUL!

i moseyed overhere from homesteaders heart!!! ok i think if i saw that laundry i might have to move

your schedule is awesome though!!!

Lori said...

Thanks for sharing that schedule - I've seen Supernanny make ones before and always thought I would use my time better if I had one too. Maybe someday I'll even be organized enough to participate in M me M!

I'm so impressed with your schedule. I have finally accepted the fact that I'm a "routine person". Every time I try to keep to particular times, I get frustrated. But if I move from one thing to the next on the list it all gets done. Routine is the same as a schedule without the times attached. It must be a mental thing for me.

Great post for Monday morning!

schedules are awesome! ours is more of a routine, but we live by it.

Kristen, The Pajama Mama said...

sarah mae,
i hope you don't mind, but i linked up two old posts on our family's schedule from last summer...we still live by them so i linked them up, but they aren't linked back to LAWCC...but my post from yesterday is! Have a great week,
kristen

Christy said...

You are so inspiring!!! Although my days are pretty routine, I think I could implement some things a little better. Thanks for sharing!

Kristy K said...

Great schedule!!! You're so organized. If I was half as organized when I had my third, I don't think I would have felt so overwhelmed all the time.

I linked up to your post, but I ended up doing it twice... can you delete my first link? Sorry, it's the first time I've ever linked up to anything. I'm still learning.

Thanks chickie!

I'm afraid I didn't do an organizing post this week. I am with you when it comes to trying to get things organized. It's something I have been working on a lot lately. It can feel so overwhelming at times. So, I am looking for all the motivation I can find in this area! So, everyone, start posting your great organization methods so I can Steal, Steal, Steal from you! LOL

Kat said...

Thanks for keeping us motivated :)

Lisa @ Stop and Smell the Chocolates said...

Good job Sarah Mae!! Nice schedule! Sice I don't have little ones at home right now, it's too hard for me to maintain a detailed schedule like that - I've tried. Too may things come up for me - phone calls to help with something, a forgotten errand to run, activity schedule changes, etc. So I need to come up with more of a list of what needs to get done each day.

I wanted to tell you though that you motivated me to get my priorities in order. Right now, I'm only worrying about the most important - the Lord! If I commit my time to Him first, I am so much more productive during the day.

So I did get up early today!! Yay!! Tried for 5:16 AM, but actually got up at 5:50 AM - still - haven't been up that early in a long time. Thanks for re-motivating me - LOL!

Have a wonderful day my friend and keep up the good job with the schedule!

You know, every time I make a schedule I end up chucking it out. Our needs change so often, the schedule needs to be changed. Maybe if I put it on the computer and made it easy to tweak...

His Honeybee said...

You are a champ at inspiring change! You go girl!!!
You look like Vanna showing us your schedule!!! ; }

When I can figure out the "Mr. Linky" thing, I'll sign on. I need help!!!! :D

The Real Me! said...

I thought for sure I already left a comment. Must have been in my mind! LOL. I'm promoting your giveaway and your fabulous blog my friend. You look GREAT by the way. And I love your schedule. I'm going to copy and paste it on my fridge! LOL.
Hugs.

Just joining in today for the first time! How fun is this! Can't wait to try it again next week!

Michelle said...

I REALLY need to do your chart! What a fabulous idea! I used to have one that was written up and on my clip board then I allowed myself to get distracted...not good!

Isabel said...

Your schedule looks great! One things fascinates me though: how do you manage to prepare meals, eat them, and clear kitchen afterwards in 15 minutes per item?? I would need an 45 minutes per item!!

christinnjon said...

Love your schedule Sarah Mae! I had once put mine on poster board and hung it up. Then it changed and I didn't rewrite it, lol.

I typed it up in a nifty chart that a friend of mine actually created (I just plugged my own stuff in). I'll share it next week!

Susan said...

My goodness! Looking at your schedule feels like I'm watching SuperNanny! Thank you for inspiring me to be a bit more organized.

Emily B said...

Nice schedule! I normally stick pretty close to a schedule, particularly on Mondays to help me get back into weekday routine. This morning I did not. The fantastic grilled ribeyes we had for Mother's Day dinner last night kept reminding me of their presence in the form of major heartburn. The last I heard the clock chime was 1:30 a.m., so I ditched the schedule today in an attempt to conserve enough energy to stay awake until bedtime. LOL!

Michelle said...

I'm incredibly organized, I think that is part of the problem, I get too caught up in the "organizing" lol then don't want to actually do it!

HeathahLee said...

I SO need a schedule. I have totally let this school year get away from me. Kiddo and I both do so much better with a schedule, and I have become so undisciplined it stinks. Or maybe that's just my laundry.

Bryan and Jamie and family said...

I love your blog and I am doing my first MMM post.

Life goes more smoothly around here with a schedule.

Katie @ 3 Blondes and a Redhead said...

That is so very "Super Nanny" of you!! Me and my type A personality love it. :)

TinkerBelle said...

Love it! You did a fantastic job! I totally need schedules and list.

heidi jo said...
