Do you have a method when your day is busy?

Sometimes I have so much to do in a day and it seems I don't know where to start. Do you have a way of deciding what to start with?

I always get the house in shape then move to errands and apt outside the home. That way when I am finally done and exhausted I come home to clean house.

makes for a hectic start to the day. When I get home and am drained its like Thank God I did the house before I left.

Surround yourself with people that add to your life not subtract from it.

I actually did kind of do this today, at least partially. I cleaned the bathrooms then got the laundry going, so at least the bathrooms are cleaned.

It is so nice to come home to a clean house.  The same thing in the morning, I don't want to see a sink full of dishes. I told my husband and sons to clean their own dishes or at least put them in the dishwasher rather than just leave them in the sink when dinnertime is over.

Im pretty OCD about my kitchen. I can NOT come down to a dirty kitchen in the am or seriously my day will be ruined. I dont think there is any reason to.

I always start with coffee. Then house stuff. Then errands.

I feel the same way. If I come out to the kitchen in the morning and there are dirty dishes in it, it makes me cringe. :(

So you gather your thoughts while drinking coffee?  Maybe this is where I am missing a step-  I get up and dive right in to housework and get something to eat and drink afterward. I am just having some breakfast now and it is lunch time. :(
