Day 10 – Thoughts on time management

OK, here’s a blast of sheer honesty: I sometimes really suck at time management. Really. For example, here it is, 11:30 on Sunday night. I WILL get this post finished before midnight, because…well, because I promised a friend I would meet the 30 Day challenge head-on. I could easily cop out. I have a ton of valid, reasonable excuses.

But I won’t. (That’s another thought for another day.)

As I mentioned in the homework post, I’m trying to be a better role model. Really, I am. But I’m just grateful that tonight my kids are in bed, and here I sit, typing away. Using way too much punctuation, getting all snarky and pretending that anything I say really matters.

Who am I kidding?

So here are a few goals that I will strive towards this week:

  • finish all requested writing at least 12 hours prior to deadline,
  • read all assignments and submit them at least 2 hours prior to deadline (see, I’m not expecting miracles, just improvements),
  • not going to bed with dirty dishes in the sink (does stacking them on the counter count?),
  • folding AND putting away all laundry (and not allowing any one load to go through a wash cycle more than once…and not hitting the “fluff” button on the dryer more than once twice)

    I believe my machine is mocking me. Yeah, yeah, the clothes are clean. I get it. Unless you're going to jump into the dryer by yourself, leave me alone.

Eh, that’s enough for one week. Maybe next week I’ll add in some other goals. Perhaps this 30 Days will not only get me blogging more regularly, but include some life-improvements as well? One could hope!
