I feel like all I have thought about or planned for, for the last 3 weeks has been back to school projects! First being the kids school shopping- they of course needs school supplies, new school clothes and a new book bag. Not to mention a new hair cut, thanks Amie at Bangz for that- they love it by the way! Then we had 2 open houses, 2 teacher orientations, a back to school parade and a back to school supply drive (which you all know I run and organize)! As well as our normal PTC events and planning for the year, finding volunteers and getting supplies for all these fun projects and so on! So is your head spinning yet, mine is just typing it! If I just had more time or an extra set of hands!
I have often wondered what it would be like to have a personal assistant to have someone help me on how to get organized or how to declutter my home or even just have another set of hands sometimes to help us get through all the craziness that goes on in our house! We never seem to have a minute of downtime! I always think that once the kiddos are in school that would give us more time to get things accomplished during the day, but I really seem to find more to do!! One way I make sure that the whole family is prepared for all of our events and projects is put them on our family calender that stays on the side of our refrigerator! So far it has worked but I have noticed over the past few months it has been hard to keep everyone informed at all times. I have tried to add some events to the calendar on my phone but then that leaves my hubby out of the loop!
