Organization...who needs it?!

I've tried and tried and tried but I just can't do it! I don't know if it's just not in my personality or what but it's just not working for me! I've printed out so many schedules and papers to keep track of things that need done, things that need bought and times to do them all. Problem is that it's so much work to just sit down and figure out how much work needs done! Exhausting!
Now, we don't live in total disarray and chaos...I am semi organized about some things. The boys have bins for toys...cars in one...markers in another...puppets in a basket...etc. I even have some of my craft stuff in various bins. I'm trying. But, when it comes down to organizing my time I just can't do it. I thought it would be a good idea to have a schedule of sorts for the boys and myself....something like...
9 am breakfast
9:30 color
10:00 read a book
10:30 snack
11:00 free play
12:00 lunch
And so on. But I soon found that with waking up all too often at 6 or 6:30 I'm lucky if I can stay awake! I also enjoy the fun of being spontaneous and not having a schedule tying us down.
So, for those of you who are uber organized, scheduled and listed I admire you and truly wish I could be like you. But alas, I know my shortcomings and have decided to embrace my unorganized self and enjoy every chaotic moment!
