Orange Rhino Challange

http://theorangerhino.com/2013/
I started the Orange Rhino Challenge!
Life is too short to spend it yelling at your kids.
Day 1 started yesterday and Maggie and Zoey are on board. They are great at reminding me and it was a peaceful day even during the tantrums. I love having my self-control back!

Weekends

The last week weekends have been spent grilling and swimming. WE LOVE THE SUMMER!
We went to the salsa festival again...without the girls, hung out with the grandparents and did chores.
I ditched women's conference to have family fun time at the pool. I considered it the best out of the "good, better, best, options.
My time has become so valuable since I am so busy. There is only one day a week where there is nothing scheduled...Thank goodness for WEDNESDAYS!
Mondays-School
Tuesdays-Music and Mutual
Wednesday- FHE
Thursday-Soccer, RoundTable, PTO
Friday- Date night
Saturday- open
Sunday- Homework

It's a busy schedule but manageable. I've ditched out on a few events to spend time with the 3 people I love most!

No Regrets

My life is still in the early stages but I am comfortable and happy with the choices that I have made and proud of where I am at this stage in my life. Many people have said that they regret not spending enough time with their kids. People have said that they wish they would have worked less, did fewer chores, yelled less, and played more. I would have to say I'm pretty satisfied with what I have done.

Cheers to more years of no regrets.
