This means I can sleep as late as the baby allows. This means I can nap with the baby whenever we're both tired. This means my days are free to spend time with my family, and if an adventure tickles our fancy, well - off we can go!
This means I (too often...) leave my schoolwork until the last minute. This means I occasionally forget
Jessica's post struck me because I too like to schedule and over-schedule, even though I know by now I never accomplish what I think I will. The thing is... her goal is manageable. And it made me think about my days, and how I could make them more manageable.
This means reading for fun will happen when I wake up in the morning, and before bed at night. If I manage to make time for a midday meal, I can read then, too. I'll get to wake up slowly with an enjoyable activity, and drift off to sleep during an enjoyable activity. On the nights I don't pass out on the couch at 10p, that is.
My schoolwork will, whenever possibly, be done in the morning hours. I don't mind sitting at my desk then because the coffee is still hot and the baby is just fine playing by himself.
Afternoons are for chores and/or errands. Or pleasure reading, if I have a particularly productive morning. As I said, our days are pretty unpredictable, so it's not like every day will go like this. But as long as I start getting my work done well ahead of time, and stop forgetting things, then I'll feel like it's a good schedule.
