School has started and is in full swing now as we approach the middle of September, and with that comes the daily deluge of papers that come home with my kids every day . We can times that by three now that my youngest has started preschool and is assigned homework every night! (Really?) That, along with extra appointments, school events and meetings every week to keep track of makes for a needed mission, a mission control. Time to get control of my family’s daily life and here are some ideas I found on how to do just that.

This is especially true around the laundry room and common areas like the living room/dining room areas. Toys, clothes and dirty dishes multiply and spread like weeds while I am at work. Time to enlist the smallest of soldiers into my housekeeping army and delegate duties, as a good general would in this war against the household chores.

Now that I am back to reality I am going to recapture some of those moments by using my 5 senses to recreate feelings of tropical relaxation in my own home.
