Hello, again! I don’t know who originally said this, but it is so true! This post is dedicated to my husband, the very organized planner….See, I really do listen when it comes to this stuff!
So, those of you who really know me, would agree that time management is not one of my strengths. In fact, I kind of like to think of myself as a go-with-the-flow kind of girl. Maybe it comes from growing up in Taos, where anything goes! The reality is, that I while I enjoy thinking that I am flexible when it comes to my schedule, I easily get overwhelmed when I fail to plan my days! I don’t like to think that I have to adhere to a rigid schedule. I mean, who wants to be rigid? But, I acknowledge that I tend to waste a lot of precious time when I don’t take a few moments to sit down and actually set my schedule. Oh, don’t get me wrong. I plan, plan, plan schedules for my kids, for homework, eating, sleeping, and activities. When it comes to myself, I FAIL at this. The only exception is working out. I usually manage to do that no matter what, but since it is directly correlated to keeping me sane, I’m not sure that counts:-) It’s just sort of automatic for me.
Anyhow, I have decided I am going to look at it from a different angle. If I can plan better, I will have more time to do the things that I want to do. I could tell you that I didn’t blog the past two weeks because I was planning a Valentine’s party for my daughter, delivering 225 boxes of Girl Scout cookies, had a kid at home with pink-eye, and was at dance competitions all day on the weekends. There are always lots of reasons/excuses why I don’t have the time to do things I enjoy or need to do for myself. If I can make the effort to plan better, there will be a much greater chance that I will have more time available. All of that said, I missed blogging and I am glad to be back!
