Well I made it through my first couple of weeks back at work.
One thing I decided before I went back to school was that my morning routine had to be simplified and purposeful. I knew I wasn’t going to survive if I kept up my previous routine (40 minutes to shower and dry my hair in the morning). So now I have a short morning routine that leaves room for me to sit and enjoy the quite and prepare my heart. Here is what I do:
5:30 Get up and get dressed
5:45 Make coffee, eat breakfast and spend time in God’s word
6:20 Get Millie up and feed her
6:50 Leave the house and drive to school
7:00 Arrive at school
I feel so much more ready for the day now that I am carving out time in the morning to start my Day with God’s word. There are days Millie gets up too early, on those days I feed her a little early and spend some time with her while I eat breakfast, then I try to fit my time with God in later in the day. Being a mom means living flexibly.
