Our Basic Weekly Plan is how we get things done. Use it to help you to remember things to do. This is not hard. So don’t get overwhelmed by this.

I will break down my Weekly Home Blessing Hour into several days. Tami does her Weekly Home Blessing Hour with her children on Monday morning before they start school. You can do it either way. Please adapt it to fit your home and school.

Now I want you to list all the things that need to be done in your home and school during the week. Then take the list and spread it out over the days.

–  –  –

Dear FlyLady, I have been on this list for 1 week and I love it. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the caring and constant reminders. I was going to wait and send you this e-mail until morning but I was finishing watching a movie (that I have not been able to do before), and I just couldn't wait any longer. I am now able to do my homeschool without fear of someone walking in and seeing my cluttered home. Like you were in the beginning everything in my house is clean "on the surface."

My husband wants me to thank you for your list he says "It is good to have the house in order (little does he know it is not even close) and to have his attractive wife back."

I had gotten to the point that I didn't get dressed until afternoon and didn't wear makeup anymore because I didn't see the point in wasting it when nobody cared (especially me) what I looked like. I now get up and dressed even to the shoes (that in itself is a miracle as I hate to wear shoes) put on makeup (sometimes I am still trying to get over that hang up) and do my hair.

For my final thought tonight I would like to share a little piece of my oldest daughter’s prayer with you. She and I always say a prayer together and do the usual God bless Mom, Dad, all the grandparents, aunts and uncles, but tonight she added something that touched me very deeply she said, "Thank you God for letting Mommy find FlyLady's group." When I asked her what she meant by that she said her mommy is back to normal again. I didn't realize that I had fallen that deep into the hole of uncleanliness in my home or in my spirit.

Thank you so much for all you have done for me and all the other participants in this list.

Saturday - Family Fun Day

1. Do my morning routine and then go have some fun with my family Sunday - Renew Your Spirit Day

1. Do my morning routine and then fill my soul with love!

Projects: How I keep up with things We have so many things going on at one time and several people working on them. The first thing I did was brainstorm everything we are working on.

Then I took each project and put it on a page all by itself.

I have a couple of days each week that I take 15 minutes to go through my list of projects and make little notes on where we stand. Believe it or not;

some of these projects are beginning to see fulfillment. We are so excited at the progress.

These project sheets help me to not have to keep all of this information in my head.

Now take a few minutes to brainstorm about all the projects you are juggling. Then make a sheet for each one.

Lesson #8: Giving Your Students Wings Our children will take what they learn, and it will become another brick in their foundations of life. You have the privilege of teaching them them how to utilize routines and take advantage every free moment they have to get ahead.

Every day was predictable. They always knew the structure of their school days because they were the same each week. They will learn from you how to find the answers to their questions through reading and research. You can teach them to love learning. You will teach them how to get things done before a deadline. Don’t teach them by example on procrastination.

Routines are the key to giving your students wings. You can ignite a love for learning in their heart that will carry them through life.

It takes commitment to give a child an environment conducive to learning. Here is an essay I wrote for a magazine that you can use to help your children’s to make this school year productive.

Dear Parents, This time of year everyone is writing articles on how to get the children ready to go back to school. I know this is an important topic for you but we have left out the main person that has to get the children ready for the first day of school: YOU!

You are the one that has to get up and get the family moving each morning. It is your responsibility to make sure they go to bed and get the rest they need to have a productive day. Your summer has been filled with a “happy-go-lucky” spirit. No one really had a bed time or their alarm set for morning.

Then when it came to mealtime; everyone just ate whatever they could find when they got hungry. What happened to the structure in our day? What happened to our routines?

If we are going to expect our children to jump on the routine bandwagon then we better be there leading the way; not just barking the orders.

We teach best by our example. Not just a simple do as I do, but an example that is set in love and from the heart. If you are not taking care of yourself; you are not going to be able to take care of your family and show them the value of routines.

Most of our lives we have run around putting out fires just to stay on top of housework, bills, jobs, and the responsibilities of parenting. If you are a born-organized person these things do not take a toll on you, but if you tend to get sidetracked then you know about putting out fires. A born-organized person just gets things done and the people around them do not even know that it has been done. If you were raised by a born-organized person you have experienced this for yourself when you got your own place. Wasn’t it a shock when the toilet started to grow things? Who knew that it was cleaned on a regular basis?

If you are this born organized-person, I am not putting you down. All I am saying is your children don’t know that this is what is happening. When you tell them to go clean the bathroom or their bedroom, they have no clue. Mainly because it was just easier for you to do it yourself than to show them that there actually is a routine to housecleaning and most things in life. For the other 80% of us that are not born organized there is hope! We can learn to be organized. Imagine that! Taking the methods that a born-organized person does naturally and using them to help us gain control over our homes and lives and in the end give our children the tools to go out into the world on their own. Born-organized people can’t even teach us sidetracked people what they do, because they have never had to figure it out; they just do it.

I have watched the people in my life that are born organized and what I have noticed is they tend to do the same thing in the same order every single morning. At first I thought that must be so boring and then I realized that it was brilliant. The brilliance comes from having the mundane things in life taken care of so you can have fun. Isn’t that what all of us really want; to have little fun. We love fun and most of the time we are having fun;

except when we are beating ourselves up because the kids are late to school again because you over-slept.

It is time for us to do school with your children and learn something that will help you enjoy life without the guilt we place on ourselves. I am going to call it FLYing School.

We will start our first lesson with our Before Bed routine.

Without a before bed routine, you are running around the house in the morning in a panic.

This is when we forget things. Your Before Bed routine helps you to start your morning on a calm step.

1. Lay out your clothes for tomorrow. Even if you have to do a load of laundry to accomplish this at first; it is better than having to deal with it in the morning when everyone is rushing around. When you lay out your clothes, your children are going to see you doing it. Now here is the fun part and we love to make things fun. Set your timer and make a game out of it.

2. Think about what you have to have when you walk out the door in the morning.

Establish a launch pad by your front door. This can be as simple as a coat hook or table.

If you have several children, one lady put an old dresser base in their entrance and each child had a drawer to put their items for the next day. Use this space to put back-packs, brief cases, or what ever you may need so you don’t have to run home in a panic to retrieve the forgotten musical instrument. If you set this example your children are going to use it too, with a little suggestion from you.

3. Go to bed at a decent hour. This is the most important part of a Before Bed routine;

start thinking about it long before your actual bedtime. Mine starts right after dinner with a bath. Establish a bedtime for everyone in the house and this includes you. You may not need as much sleep as your babies but my guess is you are not getting enough as it as. We tend to want to play till the wee hours of the morning and then try to drag ourselves out of bed with only a few short hours of sleep. This has got to stop. You are like a little baby that has gotten his days and nights mixed up and you are trying to function on no sleep.
