It’s still not right in line with my Planned Morning Routine, but little bit by little bit I’m making headway. And I’m hoping to continue slowly moving in the right direction.
Here’s how my morning went:
6:35 a.m. — Silas wakes up. I snuggle with him and invite him to be apart of my morning prayer time (I’ve really been working on not viewing my children as “interruptions” to my quiet time, but instead, encouraging them to participate in it with me if they get up early!)
6:42 a.m. — I bring Silas out to the garage with me and have him play with the basketball while I run on the treadmill. I listened to my Scripture memory work on my Bible app on my phone while running.
7:00 a.m. — Start a load of laundry. Open the box of toilet paper from Amazon and organize it in the hall closet.
7:10 a.m. — Hop on and check something online really quickly (I know, I know… I’m still working on not doing this until after 8:30 a.m.!)
7:25 a.m. — Jesse gets home from the gym and helps Silas get his breakfast while I hop in the shower.
7:45 a.m. — I get Silas ready for soccer camp and pack a snack for him.
7:52 a.m. — Jesse takes Silas to soccer camp, the girls get up and around, while I finish getting my hair fixed and makeup on.
8:00 a.m. — I make our bed, clean up our room, and do a quick clean of our bathroom.
8:15 a.m. — Then, I head downstairs and make some breakfast (fried eggs — leftover from yesterday’s breakfast, blueberries, and Flaky Biscuits — made last night — with Apple Butter that my sister-in-law made and canned for us).
8:30 a.m. — While the girls are finishing getting their morning chores done, I clean up the kitchen, load the dishwasher, do a few dishes that don’t fit into the dishwasher, and switch the load of laundry to the dryer.
And then it’s time to start my Morning Computer Time. It feels so good to have gotten so much done before I turned on the computer!
