Hi all!!! I need some help!!
I have a problem with time management. I've always known about this little teeny weeny problem but have been able to live with it for some time...until recently. Let me share this example: When my turn on the blog has come - and gone - Carla, bless her, sends me a gentle reminder about the post. In fact, I found one in my mailbox this morning. I, in turn, send her this reply-can you tell I'm chewing myself out right now???
Well, crap. I am sooo not trustworthy right now. It's on my calendar, on my idiot reminder task list that dings at me, and I even thought of things I could write about this weekend, but did I remember to do it last night??? NNNoooooooo.....I was too busy working on that %^&*# synopsis.
-sigh- oh well. I promise to get something posted this morning.
It's not that I don't want to post - I do - it's just that my mind can't wrap around the blogging date right now. Does that make sense?
This is my life right now: I'm over the summer reading program at the library where we have something going on every day of the work week. In fact yesterday we had around 150 children (at three different times). I also get home late 3-4 nights a week from practices, meetings, etc. I also have a cross stitch I'm trying to finish for a friend as well as a baby blanket for another. I also have to have my reading time each night - it's a drug. I'm writing in my head but never really have time to put it on paper - well, extra in church when I should be listening to preacher man. But I can't help it if my mind wonders!!!
Anyhoo, I don't have any children (except for 3 cats who all think that when I'm writing I should be paying attention to them) nor do I have a husband/boyfriend - I'm trying to work on the boyfriend thing. I really don't have a lot of distractions right now. So, my questions to you are: How do you manage your time? Do you make a list of things that MUST be done during the day? How do you stay on track? Any advice out there??
