(this is just a random shot of the boys playing lite brites - because it didn't seem right to publish a post without at least one photo - no matter how irrelevant it may be to the subject I'm actually writing about today.)
Now: The Topic At Hand:
To say that I am finding it difficult to squeeze time into my day to sit down and write would be understating the matter.
It seems I can either blog at
a. 6:00 a.m.
b. 10:45 - 10:50 a.m.
c. 11:00 p.m.
d. Not at all.
So - obviously, I am still tinkering with this new schedule. There are a number of problems with the new schedule.
I've already stated it: No time to write.
No time to exercise.
This is a big one. I am a woman of routines. And if I can't find an obvious spot for something like exercise - a regular, every day, no budging kind of spot... then it's not going to happen.
Every Friday morning from 8:30 - 10:30 I have scheduled 3 concurrent things for myself that cannot possibly happen at once. That I know of.
And they are
1. Buy the week's groceries.
3. Work at the office.
I'm not hanging from the end of my rope yet friends, but I am feeling my fingers slip sort of close to it.
I have managed to not only remember that it was my kid's turns to bring snack to school this week -on yes - Monday AND Wednesday (thank you for that, teachers) - and this - in spite of the fact that George ripped the snack calendar in half on the day after I got it, and hid the important half away somewhere never to be seen again...
so not only did I manage to remember, but more importantly - I managed to bake fresh, homemade pumpkin bread for them to bring, and I let them help me make it, even though I'm sure you're aware that baking with 2 kids is only slightly more efficient than mowing the lawn with a pair of embroidery scissors...
I need a vacation.
p.s. I should have some exciting news of the published knitting pattern variety any day now.
Please come back.
