Autumn with the trees changing colors fast.

Been a rainy weekend and beginning of a new week, not particularly cold but rainy. The trees are turning colors fast. Vibrant colors orange, red and yellow. Means there will be many leaves for some to rake. Lots of out doors work to be done. Raking, weeding, trimming, planting and for some of us we still have grass to get mowed.

It is so wonderful to watch the little ones walking in the leaves, trying to pick them up and move them around. Such delight on their faces. It must be wonderful to believe that much and enjoy things you do. It is a time to smile with them and hug and love them.

Good time to also get out your to do list. Instead of focusing on the holidays, just plain work on your house and get things taken care of that you have been putting off. How about your garage? Is it ready for the winter? Think about coming right into your garage in the bad weather. Look at things in the garage that are just waiting for you to make up your mind to do the proper thing like throw away or donate. I hope you are not someone who leaves things by the road side. Talk about helping the environment!

They always say if you have not used something in a year then get rid of it. It always depends on what that something is according to my way of thinking. It may be something I will always need. Don’t think like me, just begin and start pitching.

Do clean the garage if nothing else gets done right now. It will help with the coming season and give you a good sense of accomplishment

Caregiver

Care giver definition, a family member or paid helper who regularly looks after a child or a sick, elderly or disabled person. Found this definition online . Short and sweet.

Do you find that you are the care giver in your family? If so it is prudent to remember to wear your extra hats when undertaking any extra curricular activities, such doctor appointments, surgeries, and other specific calendar dates. Children in the family puts another hat on the caregiver.

Whatever your responsibilities in your job, you have to recognize you signed on for them. Job can be defined in many ways. You may be single, married , divorced, a religious, a medical person yourself, and you have to decide what your role is going to be.

I just finished a blog on organization and how important organization is to what is going on in your life. As a care giver I find organization very helpful to what happens next in our lives. Then there are days when I could care less.

The following is a list that I have added to a caregiver’s role.

  • Clothes available for appointments
  • Laundry kept up
  • Meals planned ahead – That I do not do well
  • If you have a job be sure and check with your boss about times off and how you will make up the time.
  • Take time to relax.
  • When going to appointments be sure you have the paper work done and take a medication list with you. Take your insurance cards with you just in case.
  • When visiting a new physician be sure you have the names and telephone numbers of the other physicians involved in the care of the patient.

Craziness or Calm and serene!

What does a bedtime schedule mean to you and your family especially during the school year? Must -have an early morning schedule also? Does the summertime give you a first class chance to evaluate your household and determine what you like and don’t like. If you had to draw a picture of bedtime or even early morning in your home what would it look like? Like a tunnel with work to be done on either side and you struggling to get out.

Everything written about blogging focuses on planning and being organized and this is simply the same type of planning that is going to benefit you and help with those words calm and serene:

Meal planning – Benefit you for either breakfast or supper. Find easy recipes especially for the summer time that are light yet filling and easy to clean up after. Breakfast is a meal and therefore needs to be planned for.

Everyone participates in cleaning the dishes up. Resort to using paper plates if that eliminates a source of friction. The older children in the family can help with the younger ones. Your kitchen clean and dishes put away, will make you feel so much better.

Begin now to think what changes you want to make for homework. Do a chart, let everyone be involved in the brainstorming. Put it up for everyone to read and give you input. Fill the chart with everything (appointments, work schedules, sports and games) and be ready with changes before the school year begins.

What chores do you have that absolutely need to be done in the morning or evening? Can you do one thing each evening so you are not leaving this mind boggling mountain of work to be done on the weekend. Maybe you work weekends and that mountain of work would not be cool, especially for the person doing the care giving.

Bedtimes! Establish a bedtime routine and stick with it. Remember with bedtime comes bathing, snacks, reading space, television time, video time, game playing and of course, the horrible laying out of clothing during the school year. Set rules for morning time also and figure out how to eliminate the big meltdowns that occur.

Plan what you are going to do with some relaxation time. Pamper time, craft time, begin to work on that life changing blog, start thinking about essential oils and the amazing scents available for a relaxing moment or two. Input needed from that wonderful person in your life who is involved in all of this.
