In Pursuit of an Organized Life

. . . putting life in order


I’m a few weeks into a new job and my oldest starts kindergarten in the fall. So much uncertainty and potential. How will we both do? Are we making good choices? How long will it take to adjust? Will we make new friends?

I’m missing having those systems that I had worked out from my old job. I had ways that I kept track of things and organized tasks and papers. Did I use them consistently? Not always. Did they need to be tweaked? Sure, but I had a system.

They aren’t there yet for my new job. I’m hoping I don’t miss things or goof up too many times before I figure it out. I realize with newness comes a learning curve and mistakes. I also don’t want to spend too much time designing a system before I understand the expectations or find an easier way to do it.


Since writing the draft of this post.  I’ve mellowed out some.  Still have the same questions, but a little less urgency.  September will be a crazy month for all.  It will be trying to find the balance between investing a little extra time in the new areas to help them go smoothly and not tipping the balance and becoming stressed and overwhelmed.
