Glass House

Hi, I'm Natasha.

 

I am a stay-at-home mom/teacher able to do it all thanks to the use of the internet and technology. Every day is another day to get through with the usual challenges of raising little kids while balancing life at home and part time work. But within the challenge I've found creative ways to make each day memorable while doing my best to avoid burnout.

 

Here's a look through my glass walls.

 

Stay as long as you need.

Schedules

Everyone has 24 hours in a day. A schedule is just how you organize your daily activities within those 24 hours. It's not realistic to expect everyone to follow the same cookie cutter schedule, so here are some examples of ways you can structure your daily schedule.

-School, no kids

Routines

Part of what makes our daily schedule are the repetitive tasks we have throughout the day. These tasks get accomplished easier once they are made into routines. Everyone has their way of doing things - but here are some of your typical routines.

Resources

One of the things about me is that I personally could never fit into a structure built by anyone else for my day. I would typically have a hard time keeping it sustainable. So my schedules and routines were made by me for what works best with my day to day life.

 

However, a lot of the resources I used are fairly accessible. Here are my favorites
