Femininty Friday: The 2017 Slogan and Returning to "The Box"


Affiliate Link

How is life treating you two weeks into the new year?  I am taking January to enjoy some quiet time with the family, to look for work, to begin a new FW/Marriage Enrichment class, to finish A Fascinating Companion, and to reorganize my home prior to relocating this summer.

I sound like a busy girl, and am I!  That's how I like my life to run.  I figure that when I am old, I will have plenty of time to rest.

I want to thank everyone who voted in the poll for my 2017 Homemaking Slogan.  The winner was (drum roll, please)...

Homemaking is a Dream in 2017!

As part of my effort to reorganize, I am returning "to the box" by re-reading  Sidetracked Home Executives as my first reading selection of the year.  Would you like to join me?  Read along, comment, blog along~I'm open to suggestions. 

Why use a low-tech system to organize my home and my homemaking tasks? Well, I feel the need to simplify my life and to lessen the time I spend in front of the computer screen.  I had placed all my homemaking tasks on the computer, but I found that I, then, had to leave the computer on most of the day, which increases my electric bill.  With that in mind, I unearthed my blue box of cards and am going to re-orient my homemaking tasks as well as my homeschooling; plus, I plan to go through all my possessions and already packed boxes, organizing and streamlining further.

I'll let you know how it all works (or doesn't, as the case may be).

Agape always,
Cynthia

I borrowed this book from the library this summer and am trying to put together my box mostly from memory. I think I need my own copy! I think I will like the system once it is all set up and I get in the habit of using it.

Dear Mrs. Cote,

Thank you for your perceptive comment. That has been my experience with the tickler file, which is essentially what Pam and Peggy are doing: once it is set up and becomes a habit, the rest is easy.

Best wishes!

Agape always,
Cynthia
