I saw what you did with SeptemBER. Clever! :D It sounds like you'll have a wonderful time away.

This month is going to be spent adjusting to the new normal for me. As an introvert who needs space and time to be still after being on the go, it has been an exhausting time easing into the new work and home schedule. This week is a four day week but next week is the real deal until the end of the school year. I really, really miss the remote work.

Daily:
  • Exercise
  • Prayer
  • Calendar Review of Appointments/Meetings
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Coffee Prep for the next day
  • Lunch Prep for the next day
  • Breakfast Prep for the next day
Weekly:
  • Outfit Planning for this week
  • Menu Planning for this week
  • Meal Prep for upcoming week
  • Dust/Vacuum/Mop
  • Bills
  • Laundry
  • Groceries
  • End of Last Week Reflection
  • Set Research/Writing Goals
  • Weed Garden
Monthly:
  • Kitchen
    • Dust the top of the fan.
    • Clean the oven.
    • Clean the microwave.
    • Clean out the refrigerator.
    • Wipe down cabinets and appliances.
    • Wash the floor.
    • Clean Windows.
    • Wipe down the trash can.
    • Wipe down the wall and door jambs.

I am pleased that you are giving yourself time to settle in to the new normal. It will take a while. I am hoping that it settles very quickly for you. Be kind to yourself, change is hard especially when it is so far out of your comfort zone.

Mary-
You are certainly in a time of change. It will take awhile to adjust.
Remember to show yourself some grace.
