JANUARY 2016 CALENDAR EMILY ALDER-1

I’m getting around to this as January ends. Imagine that. But you have to start somewhere right?

JANUARY 2016 CALENDAR EMILY ALDER-2

My house is a bit of a mess and, as usual, there is laundry to fold. Oh geez don’t even get me started on the garage. The list goes on and on. And that is okay, because eventually it will all get done. I am learning to live with the daily chaos that comes with three children. And with that I have made a promise to myself that each day as the twins go down for their nap I will take some time for me. I take a shower, get dressed, pour a cup of coffee and sit down to work. I have had a list of projects that I am slowly getting around to.

On the topic of lists. I swear I might be a list master. Grocery list, weekend to do list, house chores list, gift list. These lists are usually floating all over the work desk, my purse, and car. For whatever reason, writing down ideas or items not only helps me to remember what I need, but organizes my thoughts. While Matt can simply log a few notes into an app on his phone, I crave the old-fashioned movements of sitting down with a pen and paper. It’s a ritual, one of the first things I do when I sit down at my desk is look at my planned and lists.

I look forward to checking off items on my lists more and more. We have some finished projects that I can’t wait to share with you. In the meantime here is something that I have been using to motivate myself to get thing done.
