What’s on the agenda

This morning I’m sitting here thinking about all the things I need to do and all the things I want to do this week. The last few weeks have been especially interesting around here—mostly because I have been struggling to find balance in my life amidst a lot of stress. I have totally disregarded schedules and planning and I think that is only contributing to my stress levels. I like order. I like schedules. I like knowing what’s going to happen and when.

So I want to create a tentative agenda for myself for this week. I think it will make me feel better. I’m going to do this in two ways. First, I’m going to jot a quick list of tasks. Then I’m going to plug these into my calendar. I don’t know if this will work or not, but I’m going to find out! :)

Quick List

  1. Housework (cleaning, laundry, etc.)—Monday
  2. Study
    1. Sunday School lesson for next week
    2. bible study
    3. Woman After God’s Own Heart
  3. Writing
    1. catch up on last week’s stuff
    2. start outlining article for magazine
