Whipping butts outta first gear...

So, I must admit, 2012 has been a doozy when it has come to keeping up with the business, the kids, the husband, our ministry...and everything else that comes along with it.  I know...preaching to the choir, right?
There's one blog that I use as my sanity check on a weekily basis. It's my go to for all things free, discounted, peace-giving, etc.  So, of course, as I thought about making quiches this week to help our morning routine (since I have a ton of eggs left over from a recent cheesecake order, but that's a whole nother story), I went here to see what Crystal recommended.  What did I find glaring at me? Her Day 1 post on "Making the Most of your Mornings". Ok, God...are you trying to tell me something?

and with a rising 6th grader, a kindergarten-er, and a 4 year old chomping at the bit to jump into elementary, not to mention everything else that's going on, I was instantly reminded that:
  • Yup, school starts in 2 weeks
  • Yup, I need to get my butt into gear to wake up even earlier...and
  • Yup, I STILL need to put a plan into motion to make the most of my time...sure I said that in January, and again at the beginning of the summer. Don't judge me. :)
Forgive me for trying to handle my personal life and letting the blog take a backseat.  I truly had the best of intentions on January 1st....only to share what happens with most of us, that time has, yet again, gotten away from me.

For the next three weeks, I'll be following Crystal as she talks about making the most of our mornings.  I hope to learn a few specific ways to improve our productivity in the mornings as well as ways to make the mornings less stressful and chaotic, and how to start the day off well.

So, yup, I'm going to try this chall-onge and hope that I'm able to whip my own butt outta first gear. There's still time to finish strong, right?

Are you in?!?!?! Come on.....
