Where Do I Begin?

I want to be a good keeper of the home but right now I'm failing horribly at it.  If I had hired myself to keep my home I would have to fire myself.  I know this is what God has called me to do and I want to be faithful.  I want to honor and show respect to my husband by having a well kept and organized home.  He works hard so I have the priviledge of being a SAHM.  It is time I stepped up to do my part.  But, where do I begin?  I've got so many bits and pieces of starts and stops and there's so much to do its overwhelming.

I think a good place to start would be to consolidate my day planner.  I have my day planner, another book with my master lists, other master lists on the computer, a different book for my food journal and so on.  For today, my focus will be to simplify and consolidate everything into one.  From there my focus each day will be on:-

a) meals
b) homeschooling
c) daily housekeeping
d) getting things under control on a priority basis

Once "d" is under control I can begin to focus on a regular cleaning schedule.  My main goal, however, will be to stay focused and motivated.
