I'm having a breakdown and it is all the fault of Project Walking into a Hug.
Here I was, going along with this project and smiling, praising and planning Family Home Evening. Noticeable changes were happening with my children, and I was happy. And then I was slapped in the face by the fourth goal.
Schedule for Structure: Make a written schedule that you would like to follow and follow this schedule for one week.
Besides the fact that my life is highly stressful right now, my ADD/right-brained/creative self simply does not do schedules. And when I do, I end up getting really angry at the schedule (especially if it is self-imposed) and rebelling against it and refusing any sort of structure at all. Logically, I realize that we're all happier when we know what to expect. Logically, I realize that I will get more done. Logically, I realize it is a GOOD thing.
But I hate it. And schedules just make me mad.
I'm so mature.
So. Help? How do you maintain your schedule, all of you naturally organized types? Even better, how do those of you that are more like me do it? (Or do you?)
Currently, my household is in one of the greatest schedule funks of all time. So this chapter was written for me. Give me your advice, and I'll see what I can do, even if it means being on this chapter for the rest of the summer.
And I'll try really hard not to be angry about it.
