I’m not good at scheduling things, especially not things like cooking and cleaning. Sometimes I read women’s blogs who have their entire lives planned out so everything in their household and family runs like a special operations plan from the army.
Oh, is that YOU?
I’m so sorry. I’m not making fun of you. I like your matching shoes. It’s just that I’ve given up trying to be like you, because it’s absolute torture for me.
I mean, where’s the fun in never running out of clean underwear or attempting to make dinner out of one dusty can of lima beans and a pack of shrimp Ramen noodles?
In all seriousness, I could use an organizational lesson or two thousand. If only they had a pill that caused a woman to use her whole brain the entire day. Well, some things I just have to keep wishing for, others I can attempt to change.
For the summer I’m instituting a little schedule of sorts. It’s only been two days and I’m proud to say it’s working splendidly. I needed quiet time to write. Finding this time has been a struggle. I know this will be difficult for you to understand, but I don’t write so well when I’m interrupted every other sentence. I’ve been averaging about twenty-five words an hour, because I’m doing laundry, policing a gang of children, and making snacks in between.
My hubby suggested that I take two hours every morning, make the kids play in their rooms, and just write in peace. After the two hours, the kids can ride their bikes, run wild, or chase the neighbor’s cat. Anything to release their pent-up energy. Then we can have lunch and go do fun things.
Sounded like a plan to me.
I’m on day two and I’ve already written about five thousand words. By golly, I think this scheduling thing could work!
Does anyone else schedule time to write, or work from home?
