Scheduling and Sabbath - A Vlog

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

Since you all made me feel so good about my last vlog, I decided to try it again. (Thank you for the encouragement!) It is fun, and faster than a post.

So tell me, how do you keep schedules straight and enjoy a Sabbath break in your home?

  1. love the topic, love the vlog! the key to scheduling--constant communication!!! Sabbath rest--continually working on this. and some weeks are definitely better than others. but i am very conscious of this and want it to look different. but i feel like we're making progress :-)
    have a great day, courtney!

    1. Me too, Steph - constantly working on the constant communication. That made me smile :)

  2. I'm just terrible at rest in general, but we have definitely been more conscientious about not scheduling any planned activities on Sunday after church. It's helpful for me to know that after church, whatever happens, can happen. A lot of times, the neighborhood kids are outside playing when we get home, so the girls go play with their friends, which opens up some space for Craig and I to connect.

    We also used the shared calendars, which help a lot!

    1. Yes - we try hard to keep Sundays open and free. It is nice to have at least that space in the week.

  4. I'm the schedule keeper in our home. My husband is very much a last minute planner, so I just make sure I check what's up on his schedule every couple of days. I'm so used to it, it's second nature! Plus, he can almost always be flexible, so if something comes up and I need his help, he can usually make it work!

    1. I find this is the key, Andrea - knowing my husband and working with him, instead of against him. He does the same for me. (Though I hate to admit there is anything I could possibly be doing in a less than perfect manner - ha!)

  5. This is a tough one for us because my hubby runs a business, and our home is his office. So, we will often jump into the car and go for a drive... we don't really drive anywhere particular, but sometimes, we plug some worship music in and sing along. It works for us...

    1. What a great idea. My parents do this sometimes to "get away" - they just go for a drive in the country. Works for them!

  6. We use an online calendar, Cozi, where I keep all of our appointments outside of Brent's work. That way when he is scheduling something at work or needs to see what our week looks like, he can just log on and see. It has helped a lot!

  8. Awww, it's so fun to really see you!

    Last Saturday we had a true day of Sabath. I can't even remember the last time we truly rested. Not only did I feel relaxed, but wow, what a time to connect. Now, if I can only force myself to do it more!
