I need two things in my life.
I need rhythm.I need to know what happens next, because after last year, never knowing what was going on with Will, I want everything to slow down. I want to know what is happening every day, I want to know that on Monday, I will run errands and make a big meal for dinner*. Tuesday is laundry day and maybe I will get the bathrooms cleaned*. Wednesday will be set aside for cleaning the bedrooms*.
I need simplicity.I am attached to a lot of junk. But I want to detach myself from it. I want our home to be simple and lovely. I need it to be easier to clean. I need to get on top of the cleaning, because right now if I stop and look around at all that really needs to be done, I panic a little. (This goes back to rhythm, too.)
I think if we can manage to work these into our lives fully, we will all be happier. We will be more content. (By the way, Will brought up establishing more rhythm into our lives. I know its something I need, and it helped me so much last year when I couldn't control many aspects of my life.)
*These are just examples, except for Tuesday being laundry day, it is and has been for a few years. Monday would be a good laundry day, but there are usually a lot of other things that need to be done on Mondays.
