How do we stay on track??

Well, the honest answer to that would be that we do try to stay on schedule, but most of the time we are a little off.  However, since reading the book, Managers of Their Homes, I have been more inspired to stick to a schedule.  I have posted about this book before, and still love it. 


This is the master schedule that I came up with for me  and the five children.  My husband is not on the schedule, because he goes to work outside of the home.

I used two pieces of poster board and sticky notes.  I decided to use the sticky notes, in case something changed, like an activity, then I could just simply take the note off and replace it with another rather than have to re-do the entire thing. 

I will admit that it did take a while to sit down and come up with the schedule.  It also took a while to get it on my poster boards, but it is worth it.  It is not perfect by any means, but it is a work in progress.  I can already tell there are some things that I want to tweak to make it work better for us, but this is how I attempt to stay sane in this crazy house that I live in.

How do you stay on track during the day??
