Day 2 of Make Over Your Evenings is all about visualizing what your ideal evening would look like. While we may not be able to enjoy our ideal evening every night- let's be realistic folks!- knowing the direction we'd like to be heading helps us to take the first steps closer to it.
Here's my ideal evening:
6 p.m: Finish dinner and family worship. Get the kids ready for bed, clean the kitchen, tidy the house.
7 p.m: Tuck the kids in for the night. Plan for the next day- breakfast, clothes out, to do list made. Get ready for bed- pajamas on, face washed, teeth brushed.
8 p.m: Spend a little time blogging and doing other online work; or finish any pressing housework that hasn't yet been done.
9 p.m: Relax and unwind. Hang out with Niall, watch a show, read a book, etc. Enjoy it with a cup of herbal or other decaf tea.
10 p.m: In bed, lights out.
Of course I already knew these things before... but somehow writing them down gives them a bit more weight. If I can only follow this map each night, I think I'd be a much happier camper in general.
