I love freedom. I want to get up whenever my eyes open and stay up until I feel sleepy. You know, do what I want to do, when I want to do it. However, I also get very stressed when I don’t feel like there is enough time in the day. The later happens way too often, especially when I’m working on a first draft.It’s busy around here! With writing, blogging, homeschooling the girls, and the boys schedules, I sometimes feel like my head is spinning around on my neck.
My answer is to be a free-spirit on a schedule. Now, I’m not one of those people who schedules every second of their day. That would make me into a time bomb and very dangerous for my family. I’m organized from 6am until 2:30. The rest of the day seems to schedule itself. With picking one kid up from school, to games, making dinner, and cleaning up around here, there isn’t a whole lot of down time.
The new scheduled went into effect this morning. It means getting up 30 minutes earlier than I have been. That’s 6am folks! I’m not an early bird. Not even close so this time is brutal, but appreciated later. The first thing I do is my Bible study. It’s something I don’t want to have pushed aside if life intrudes on the schedule.
So, how do you get it all done?
