I woke up this morning with knowing that today was going to be a busy day, that this week was going to be a busy week.  Of course, we always say we are busy, but real busy to me is when we have lots of out of the house commitments, and/or having more than one commitment per day – that to me is busy.  When I have days, or weeks, like this, I need to make sure that I stay on track, from the inside out;  that my heart keeps it focus on God and on my family, and then that I manage my time.

Over the weekend I wrote – Not Enough Time – outlining 5 keys that help me when I feel overwhelmed.  This will be a good week to take notice of my own advice!!

Then this morning I read this blog where she talks of delegating tasks, totally unrelated to parenting, homemaking and homeschooling but… it reminded me of one of my own points – work as a team, delegate.

So this morning as I look at my to-do list, I am going to see which tasks my kids can do.

* Josh can help Daniel write a story that has been brewing all weekend
* I am making some photo-cards for Christmas and Nomi and Daniel could both do a step each in that process.
* Jess can help me cook dinner, and dinner for a friend (we will make double of the same recipe)
* Josh can mop the floor

Wow!  What is left for me?  My priorities
* Business phone calls
* 2 hours Business tasks
* I want to make some raw biscuits

We also need to go to town for 3 appointments!

So what can you get your family to help you with today?
