Late for Work

Late for Work

So it’s day two of my new schedule.  I’ve got some serious kinks to work out but I think I can do it.  Ever since my friend V. said to do my writing as a job, the advice has stuck with me.  Just because I’m at home, doesn’t mean I have to act like I’m at home.  So yesterday after going to bed at 11:30pm (and yes that’s early for me) I got up at 6:30am and jumped straight on the computer.  My baby boy sniffed me out sooner than I had liked but I was still able to get some me time and some work done.  Still I had to spend part of the day working on a biographical essay, but I had a good start.

So today, it was harder to get up.  Last night was belly dancing class — we had great fun!  So I was late getting to bed since I had to eat dinner and clean up the kitchen before my shower.  I had to do a rush cleaning of my refrigerator too because it’s trash day today and I was a couple months overdue for wiping down the interior.  I hate a nasty fridge, so it had to be done.  I pulled the covers over my head around 12:10am.

I struggled to get up but made it by 6:45am this morning.  This time I got dressed and brushed my teeth before turning on the computer.  I even read a bible chapter which blessed me ,of course, and that’s how I logged on late, at 7:06am.  It was worth it.  I figure if they sleep until I wake them at 8:30am (cause I need to go the the grocery store early today) then I can get a few things done on here.  Eric was giddy lastnight when I talked about my plan to do this new schedule and he is very supportive.  Probably just glad something has moved me to action over all the complaining I do.  And it is about time.  The nice part is that once I’ve got myself together, I can focus on changing our daily schedule too.  I’m shooting for a 7pm bedtime for all the little Brooks, by August.

It would be heavenly to add some pre-dawn exercise back in too, for myself.  But I’m doing okay with 2 midmorning workouts and then belly dancing once night a week.  So I’ll take it.  Just trying to focus on one thing at a time so I get the sense of accomplishment.  Perhaps I am not too undisciplined to balance my mommy job with my new job.  Well, I’m praying over the keyboard each morning until God says, “No more, Polly. I can’t take any more of your incessant begging!  Go forth and be brilliant!”  Yeah.  He could do that.
