Dust Bunnies in Your Day

Bryan and I just moved our bedroom around to accommodate some lovely, new-to-us bookcases from Jamers. We haven't rearranged our furniture in the four years we've lived in this home. Let's just say that the dust bunnies under our bed were impressive.

Our daily schedules and routines can be like that. We must be willing to be willing to move things around as our situations change or, instead of finding dust bunnies, we feel stressed.

If you notice the tension starting to build at the same point each day, step back and reevaluate. I find it helpful to go to Bryan with what's bothering me. His perspective is usually objective enough to see a new solution to the problem.

Next semester we're departing from our normal routine to do a semester study on Indiana State History. Our standard routine won't work with the curriculum layout. At this point I don't know what our day will look like, but I know it will need to be different! Stay tuned...


  1. what curriculum are you using for Indiana State History?

  2. We'll be using State History from a Christian Perspective for everyone from Jacob (6) to Emelie (13). I'm hoping to really dig into planning our semester soon!

  3. I can't wait to see the new room! I hope you enjoy. :) We are suppose to get our new shelves Friday. I love your thoughts on moving things around in our schedule...totally understand and have done that already this year! :)
