Have you ever looked at your calendar and almost held your breath because you see everything coming? That is this week for me. It always seems to get very busy right before school starts. Band Camp, Card Class, National Night Out, Alice in Wonderland, and probably a few other things thrown in for good measure. They are all good things, but they are all this week.
So what do you do to prepare yourself for a busy week? Is there a “lucky” routine you do to help get through the week? For me I plan, eat well, work out, and keep focused. So tomorrow there will be some planning and some cutting.
The main change lately has been shifting my focus or perspective. I am no longer saying that “I have to do…”. I am now saying that “I am choosing to do…” or that “I get to do…”. It’s amazing what power words have on your attitude and often your outcome.
Share your magic formula in the comments to stay focused.

Lists. I must have a priority list
Major housecleaning today, blinds, bedding. It actually relaxes me to get things done.
It does for me too. Love feeling like I accomplished something.
