Unexpected routine

So, I'm doing this thing where I'm reading the Bible in a year, chronologically. I got the inspiration from my S-I-L Angela. I didn't actually tell anyone I was doing it because if I don't tell anyone and I fail, then it's just me and God who know. Grin-if you've follows me since January 1, or are related to me, you know my failure issues so this logic shouldn't seem shocking to you. However, I don't want to fail. But, there are days when it's hard. 

Today, for example was an unexpected snow day. My siblings and husband and parents were all home today, and there were still laundry to do, construction projects to do, things to be written, a blog to be kept, scripture to read...

I read a lot all the time about routine and keeping ones routine and etc etc. But, it seems so impractical when the days are so unexpected. I know it's going to get more and more unexpected, so please, moms of the world-don't jump down my throat and tell me how great I have it. I get it. But, unexpected messes with routine. It messes with priorities. I don't have this fantastic bulleted list of ways to prioritize and keep a proper routine. I don't know because I'm attempting to figure it out. However, from my research, what I'm learning is that a morning routine works best to jump start the day. On the days when you get up at 6, you do it. On the days you sleep in until 9, you do it. So, maybe that's my new thing. My new way not to fail at this ambition of chronological reading. An explicit morning routine. I have one-it includes a shower, reading blogs, one load of laundry, emptying the dishwasher. I just have never articulated it. 

So, in an effort to become more productive, my goal for the next week. Until next Thursday. Is to come up with my own practical morning routine. I will share it with you, along with pictures next week. 

Now, before you go: snow day pictures!!!

Happy people on a day off!

Micah sort of rocked out this snow angel. 

And when he did this I couldn't help but tell him that "fools names like their faces are always found in public places" in a song-song voice. 

Snowball fight!

And my husband turning on the camera girl! Ps- do you see that I captured the actual snowball?!?
