CREATING A ROUTINE!

Hello and good morning!

How did your week go? I hope you had a wonderful productive weak. Have you started cropping new routines for the new year yet?

I love my routines I actually rely on my routines probably more than what I think I do! Did you catch last week’s blog about why I have my routines. With what routines I will always keep and which ones I can move around more! I will leave a link for that blog make sure to go and have read if you have not already!

Do you have routines already or you getting ready to start one? Maybe you don’t do routines at all and I’m here to tell you you should they are a LIFE SAVER!

ROUTINES…YES EVERYDAY!

When it comes time to the new year is usually when someone is like I need a better routine! It doesn’t need to be at the beginning of the year or, even at the beginning of a week you can create or start a routine anytime you are ready!

When I sit down and look over my routines whether something’s not quite working, I feel a little too stressed at certain times of the day or life is just totally went wonky for a little bit and something needs change! I will always sit down and be ready to move some stuff around on my routines!

Now, with this said I also will say that I have been using routines for so many years now that I automatically know what chores will help me the most on what times of the day without needing to try to move those chores! For an example every morning I unload the dishwasher, start a load of laundry, get the kids with lunch ready, get them up get them going you know the normal stuff!

With that, I have done a bunch of different things and guess there are some things that I would like to put back into my evening routine that have been in my morning routine that I feel would help my morning go smoother however, when things have stayed the same for so long it can be hard to break that routine. This is because if you do a routine for so long it’s becomes a habit and not a routine! This is why I always say keep with your routines it will get better if it’s not helping you then change it. A routine is set to help you!

MAKING A ROUTINE!

When it comes to making your routine I always suggest to start small. This is because we tend to throw a whole bunch of stuff on to our list and wonder why we didn’t get it all done!

I suggest we start with 3 tasks that you have to do in the morning. This can be any three tasks it can even be tasks that you already do and don’t really realize it this will help you see the times and the different ways of making your routines!

I also I suggest you start with you’re basic routines at a time! This will allow you to see your time and your ability to do certain tasks at a certain block of the time! Let me explain this a little more!

Let’s start with a morning routine! And I tend to start with a morning routine because that is the time of day that everybody seems to be the most rushed most frazzled in the most stress.

The first thing you need to decide is how long is your routine going to take you from. Is your morning routine from when you get up to when say your kids go to school if that’s what they’re doing oh, maybe it’s when they’re going for their first nap maybe it’s when you were heading out the door to make it to work on time! No matter what your morning looks like everybody has a morning and that is why a morning routine is important for anyone!

When starting your morning routine start small! Start with between 3 and 5 tasks to get done in that certain time frame that you have! These tasks may just be to make your bed, get dressed and maybe unload the dishwasher. The chances are your mornings have more tasks already involved in it. There’s probably more tasks but you’re doing out of habit than what you realize you were doing.

I say that you are probably doing more than what you realize because when you are doing a habit you don’t think about doing it it is just that I have it now. Think about some of the habits that you do in the morning that would probably be on somebody else’s morning routine. For example when you get up a lot of the time you are probably on autopilot not realizing exactly how much you were doing when you were doing it. It is like that for I think literally everyone just because you don’t think about it doesn’t mean you’re not actually doing. Do you might not need to put some stuff on your morning routine but it could just across the the off wink wink 😉 😜.

Some of these tasks could include something like making your bed, getting dressed, brushing your teeth, making lunches, making your coffee Etc you get my point. Just because it isn’t a big cleaning task or organizing task doesn’t mean it doesn’t need to be on the list! Not everything on your list needs to be a big task just because it’s not a big nagging task doesn’t mean it doesn’t need to be done.

This is where I was saying but it doesn’t matter what is on your routine because it’s your routine. This is meant to make your time frame that you were working with more productive more calm and making more time for what you want to do.

So for this week’s blog I’m going to leave it at that. I have plans on doing routine talks, planning talks, organizing tips all of that fun! It’s going to be a fun, balance year here!

I hope you will join me for all the different topics that I am planning on sharing and learning about and just trying to get better at. I will leave the links to my other social media pages I have high hopes for myself to have much more daily posts on the pages.

Got something that you would like to talk about? Did you want to see more of my daily focus chores? Maybe some daily post on the cleaning tools than I am using! Leave a comment down below I would love to hear what you would like to come out of 2022 this year.

Until next week week!

Have a wonderful day, a great weekend and a productive week!

Bye for now!

ROUTINES…YES EVERYDAY!

Hello and good morning!

Happy Monday! How was your week? I hope you had a great New Years! It is wild that it is 2022, how crazy is it too think that another year has come and gone!

This year I had picked Balanced as my word of the year and, with that I am trying to balance my life more! I don’t aim to add a bunch of new tasks to my day rather then too try to balance it out nicer!

Did you read last weeks blog on my 2022 word? I will leave a link for it if you missed it!

Happy 2022

This week I wanted to talk about one of my favorite things to help keep my house running a little more smoothly! That is to have a good ROUTINE!

If you have been with me for a while you probally already know that I LOVE MY ROUTINES! I can really not tell you enough how much routines hep out with my family and myself!

To have a routine does not mean too have your day planned out to the T. You can sure but, you don’t need to!

A routine is good for any time and can be used as many times through a day as one needs!

I use routines multiple times a day however, if and or when I start feeling that my routines are starting to need adjusting because of the seasons or just different life occurances then I will ususally only keep my moring and night routine! I feel my afternoon routine is the one that can be held off for a bit vs the other ones!

When it comes to the morning routine and night routine I feel these go hand in hand and will run a smoother house during the day and help set up for a smoother day for the next day!

If you have a strong morning routine your day and night will probally go smoother if, you have a strong night routine your morning should be smoother and then its a big cycle from one day to the next. These routines will eventually turn into habits. Without thinking about it you will be doing certain tasks without really thinking about needing too!

I have tryed to do many different lists and to do ideas! However, I have learned that I work the best but, also like my planner and routines the best!

I have always been a list kinda girl but, when it comes to my lists I will take routines over most because, I find I am very scattered in my thoughts and I will loose track of what I was doing and work in a space that was not a priority and that’s how it happens! I would work hard all day bouncing from here to there for the end of the day to come and all that I have seems to be a bigger mess.

I have my routines and I rearrange them LOTS, this is becuase there is always something changing in the house! Whether it is a change in the season which yes, here is Saskatchewan has a big impact in the days or, someone has joined something and times need to be rearranged!

Do you have a routine?

Are you a block sysytem, or a list person?

With the year just starting I always feel my routines can be a little stronger! As I sit down and make my routines I realize that a lot of what on there is what is needing to be there! It can be easy to fill in the blanks to make a better routine but a nice blank sheet and a morning is really where you need to start it!

I thought it would be a good idea to start the new year blogs on routines!

I hope this helped in understaning the power of a routine but, why I have my routines!

I hope you will follow the blog I aim to make my days run smoother and fill in the time with some mom fun! I am aiming to post more daily stuff over on facebook also! I would love to have you over there too join the fun!

Lets get this year running smooth and get BALANCED this year! Every year is different this year is going to be AWESOME!

Until next week.

Have a great day a, wonderful weekend and a productive week!

Bye for now!

Happy 2022

Hello, good morning!

Happy Monday! How was your holidays?

This year was a good christmas! It was filled with great memories, great gifts, way to much food and some good drinks! This year was also a little different! The way that is was different was that I had my christmas decorations down before New years eve! This is almost unheard of for in my house!

Last year I had kept my tree up and made it into a Valentine’s tree! It was the cutest thing I think! I will leave a link for the blog… go check it out it was a cute and fun idea!

Valentine’s Fun!

So why the rush this year?

There wasn’t really a reason or a big rush however, this year like I said it was a great christmas. I has woke up tho one morning just after christmas. We has had christmas here with my husbands parents and brother, then boxing day we had spent with my dad! He is unable to come out to my house due to a knee injury he is still recovering from!

So, we did our christmas’s then for some reason I was good to end christmas there! I think I was conent I had said ” It was a great christmas and lets leave it there! Let’s let those memories be the end of the year!” Really I did!

With my hubby saying I could start with taking down the tree decorations I just kept on going! It really was just what I needed!

Now, that the new year is here I am still so happy that I took the time when I did and got the decorations but away and a clean start to the new year!

The last ocuple years have been a blur, as I am sure it has been like that for many people! These years have been a wonky one and I am ready to MOVE ON!

With the New year here I am ready to start 2022 with a wonderful start!

Do you make new year resolutions?

Do you ever pick a word for the year?

I had started thinking of word of the year a couple years ago and I liked it enough to keep doing it lol! I find it’s a nive way to sprinkle some possitivity and motvation on the start of the year! I also make new year resolutions however, I do that one a little different! I don’t do big lists of things that I might or might not do! I have been trying to take a couple spots in my life that I would like to work on and every month I will try to do something with that goal or try to incorporate it into my days instead of junping in and feeling like it will not work and just stop a couple weeks into it!

I aim to improve myself or my life vs changing big almost impossible tasks!

This year I had thought about it and, different words had popped into my head for the new year but, one word made my head and my heart agree on!

That word is:

BALANCED

This word I think is a good fit for me expecially for in 2022!

I had ended up going with this for a couple reasons. When I had thought of this one it had stuck with me in the back of my head even while I was thinking of other ones! With the last couple years we defentily had a couple twists and turns along the way! As i’m sure everyone had some unexpeced turns occur in 2021!

This year I know that I needed to be able to handle my days a little better! I do defentily have anxeity and tend to overthink and just struggle with my own thoughts throughout some days! This was doing no good for anyone!

This is why I am hoping and planning to simply just tyr to BALANCE my days! I tend to think that there is really only one way to do something! Everything should be done and done right! This is not the way I need to be thinking!

There is more and more reason when I think about it of why my word of the 2022 year is BALANCED!

As a stay home mom, a wife, trying to keep the kids fed and for the most part contect. With everything that we do as a mom and a wife we are then also ALWAYS reminded that we need to make sure to take time for A,B anc C! This was not a strong suit of mine, in the aspect that I will not stop until its ALL done! Which some and probally most days is not possible to do everything that we are told we need or should be doing!

I picked the work BALANCED to remind my self and to try too become more BALANCED!

If you try to do to much at once it will be too hard!

If you try to put to much on one side without a balancer on the other side then you tip!

The one thing that I have been telling myself is “It’s not about how much I can do, it’s about being happy when I do it!” I can’t be scared to fall when I know that I might fly! If I can learn to balance my wings then who knows how far they will take me!

How about you? Do you use a word of the year to help with any resolutions that you may of made for the year?

I am planning on having a wonderful year with more fun with the blogs and more content on my social pages! If you are ready I would love for you to join me in the 2022 year!

Follow along on the blog I have a goal to get my life more organized and our house running as smooth as we can with so many people and so many different age catagories! I will also leave a link for my facebook and instagram! I have set goals to be more BALANCED with the pages and to have more talks with ALL OF YOU!

Until next week!

Have a wonderful day, a productive week and a smooth weekend!

Bye for now!

Merry Christmas

Good morning!

Merry Christmas everyone and a happy new year!

How was your weekend? Did you survive?

This Christmas I didn’t try as hard and I want to phrase it that way! I want to phrase it this way because, I did everything that I do every other year! I still made sure there was a ton and a half food, all the gifts were done, stalking set out all of that was done!

It was the things in between that I didn’t do this year prior to lots of other years. I try to change things up to a degree every year I’ll try something a little different or I’ll skip something or add something. This is my way of trying to figure out how to get a smooth Christmas LOL

Nevertheless, this Christmas was another wonderful memorable one for the books!

This is not going to be a long blog I just wanted to hop on here make sure everyone survived Christmas and I just wanted to say from my family to yours Merry Christmas have a wonderful new in be safe have fun and have a wonderful start to a new year!

I have lots of different ideas coming for the new year we had is completely scrambled and that’s a perfect way to end a scrambled year I think LOL.

I hope you will join me in the New Year for all the fun that I’m hoping and planning on having on classy classics by Kandis. I hope you have a great day, I hope you survive the kids winter break make sure you have some wine no and then and make sure take some time for yourself and have a wonderful Christmas break!

OUT WITH THE GRINCH!

Hi and good morning!

Whoop whoop it’s almost Christmas! It is hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner now! It doesn’t seem like a year a ago that I was cleaning and and checking out all the goodies from last year!

I remember telling the kids that Christmas was over and it was only a year away! Then boom here we are again with very little that has changed I find! I am trying not to be to ancy or grouchy this year! There is nothing to be granky about I think really it’s freaking Christmas time!

I always find it kind of funny how it is “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” but, it is probably one of the most stressful time of the year! I should say that I don’t know if it’s the stress after the holidays that make it seem so crazy or if it’s that I put so much stress into it that makes it crazy! Does that make sense?

I find another thing that part is all of my kids birthdays are in the winter and kind of been slipping with birthday parties lately. I think some of it has to do with covid in the back then there’s just rules everywhere now. It makes it hard to plan a birthday party! My next birthday party is my two little ones they actually are born 2 years and 5 days apart LOL oh yeah lots of cake. Winter is not the diet time in this house I tell you.

This year it wasn’t really stressful I’m not close to being done and I should be stressed out oh, I think it’s okay though all you know I got most of the gifts bought most of them all oh, it’s just mostly my Christmas baking that I have to do which I don’t know why it’s making me feel stressed because it’s not like it’s hard to make Christmas cookies!

This year I’m really excited about just trying to enjoy Christmas with all the kids. I think it’s hard to that true that year kids are good but they still drive me bonkers through the year and so when Christmas time comes around seems like it’s being such a short year but such a busy year.

I think that’s the reason why I’m a little more and see this year is just that 2021 is almost over bad and there’s still a bit to do before I’m ready to do 2022. Now don’t get me wrong I’m excited about 2022, bring on the new year out the old in with the new but it’s still the end of a whole year. I sit here and I’m like what did I do that whole year and it seems like there’s not a whole lot on my list but I know that there is. It was just one of those years I think. Did you notice that as you got older the days just blur together months just blend in together.

This year there was definitely some emotional roller coasters happening but,. Tends to happen at this time of the year for a lot of people. This year for Christmas I just want to be can’t be around my children drinking my coffee and enjoying them opening their stockings and presents.

I am trying to leave 2021 and I cannot be plays hoping that I can bring in 2022 and a happy place! I have been racking my head around my different sayings or my word for 2022 as I do love doing I don’t always stick to my word on my phrase depending on what it is but just like New Year’s resolutions I try!

There’s a lot of stuff like I said to finish up for 2021 but I am set to try to make the end of this year as great as I can to make the beginning of next year as absolutely great as I can!

Until next week I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! I hope you have peace and happiness and some wonderful coffee. Have a great day a, wonderful weekend and a productive week!

Bye for now.

IT’S BEGINNING TO LOOK LIKE CHRISTMAS!🎄🎁

Good morning, happy Monday! How was your week?

It’s hard to believe that it is DECEMBER already! The year really flew by tho, well I think so! When I think about the last year I have to think that yap it went by fast! Another crazy wonky year but, I am looking forward to 2022!

This year I am trying to be jolly but, it’s not as whoop whoop! There is just a lot of loose ends to tie up for the end of 2021!

When in doubt put tinsel up lol! I did my decorating before December again this year but, for different reasons!

I had said in a previous blog that my son wants his birthday at his grandparents house this year! With that coming up well he has it when you are reading this his birthday is the beginning of December!

I have not set up our trees yet! Yap, Trees! lol

Let me explain this one! Last year we were not going to get a real tree! Now we have always had a real tree. 🌳 I grew up with only a fake tree and my husband only had real trees!

So, when we had got a fake tree and set it up my hubby didn’t really jive it so off him and our son went to get a tree! Well my fake tree was already up and dedicated right so, we had 2 trees haha. A kid one the fake tree and then the big one for the presents the real tree! How this happened was we had some friends over on night while talking about getting a real treeand I had said that I I think we should just keep both then and they could still go out and get a tree but, I felt that we should do both with a room of girls it was no big discussion and we then had two trees!

This year I still have all intentions of having both trees on just not sure on if they will be both in living room again!

I has thought about not decorating until we were back but then I would not of been putting up any decorations until the 7th! This would of been fine don’t get me wrong but I didn’t want to come home and need to feel rushed vs taking the days that I did!

The weekend after the 7th we are going to look for our rear tree so I feel I would of felt rushed on this!

We also had a toy pickup at toys R us on our way home! So that is another reason with so many packages coming in I didn’t want to have too much on my plate!

I already sat down and broke up my weeks! This is one of the tips for saving money through the holidays!

Did you catch last week’s blog on HOW TO SAVE DURING THE HOLIDAYS? I will leave a link down below!

To break down your weeks to put your tasks in each week will not only save you time and stress but it will save you money! This is because if you have the time to prep and do something the chances are you won’t spend the money to go and buy vs doing it at home!

Back to the point is I didn’t want to much going on that I already know would of been overwhelming and hard to do it all!

With all of that said I think it’s a good time to show my Christmas decorations! A lot is years old some sitting at almost 40 years old lol, I do hit the dollar stores and get asked new peices every year because we’ll I can lol! There is usually something…. as long as I get there early enough in the season… that catches my eyes and I want it lol! Yes Christmas problems lol!

Let’s start some Christmas decoration pictures!

If some of the pictures for some reason don’t load on the page then just click it! It should load the pictures from what I can tell lol. Stay with me I’m not the best computer person lol.

This is set kinda from walking from one end to the next in my house for the decorations!

I hope you enjoyed my holiday post! I will leave links for my other pages down below come join over on the other social media pages I try to post more personal daily tasks and goals. What I’m using to clean and some tips and tricks with it all.

Hope this struck some holiday cheer and some holiday motivation!

I would love to see your favorite decorations!

Until next week

Have a great day, a wonderful weekend and a productive week!

Bye for now!
