Cold Weather, Dark Mornings and Getting Organized

   On Sunday, I woke up and saw how dark it was, so I rolled over to go back to sleep. I caught a glimpse of my clock and realized it was 7:45am. I couldn't go back to sleep, I had already overslept.
I usually get up at 7:30 on Sundays, so we can try to leave for church by 9:30.  I try anyway.  But, most Sundays, I have to iron clothes for at least three of us.  Which leads me right into a major problem.  Organization!
If I iron the kids' clothes sometime during the week, I would free up some time to get ready quicker.
So, my mission this week?
Getting organized!
There is so much to do and before I get caught up on the cold weather blues....  You know, when it is too cold to go out, dark outside, rainy and dare I say it, when the snow comes.  All of that just brings me down, so I need a better way of doing things.    
If I can get a system down before then, then maybe I will conquer the blue feelings this year! 

Bringing Charlotte to her little class at the library is one of the few things during my day that is organized.  I go once a week at the same time.  It helps that this part of my schedule is already set and I don't have to think about what I am doing for that part of the day.  And she loves it!
So, this week, I need to make lists.
I am not a list maker by nature, so this takes a lot.
The only thing I consistently make lists for is food shopping and menu planning.  Now I want to add calls I have to make, a cleaning schedule, projects to do around the house....
And the ideas are endless.
Stick around to see where I go with this.
