One of the things many people say to me when they find out I have a lot of children is "you must be so organised". The reality is I am not. I am one of the least organised people on this earth. If I don't have a routine for the day written down many of the things I should do just don't get done.
I read a mothers rule of life a couple of years ago now. I start a new rule each year generally and review it around the middle of the year. I reviewed it recently and changed it because of family needs changing. Since implementing the rule and trying to follow it I have found that my disorganisation is really about my lack of self dicipline. It is also because I want to do what I like rather than what I should. I have to pray often, "Lord give me the grace to do what I should rather than what I want".
I realize how important it is that we run a routine here. As soon as we don't the dog and cat go hungry, the house looks like cyclone tracey has been through and I don't know where anything is. So again I resolve yes I will write up what needs to be done each day and I will do it.
