I have discovered some more key elements. Mostly because this is how I have been derailed from my project. But each time I have a set-back, I learn. That is life.
7. Get Plenty of Sleep – When you are tired, you can’t get anything done. When the whole family is tired, it’s a disaster! Things are left undone, everyone is cranky, important events are forgotten. Seriously, sleep is sooooo important!
8. Enlist the Entire Family – Chore charts are back! The kids have to chip in. When the spouse looks at you and asks why the house is a disaster, hand him a list of stuff to do that will help. If even one person isn’t on board with keeping it together, the whole thing will fall apart.
