Time Management

I sat at our windows last night watching the swirling flakes come down - I'm like a little kid when it comes to this. I love how peaceful it is and that it can transforms a city over night. This morning there's still snow, not fully melted, on roof tops. It's beautiful. I wish it would stay longer.
This week I focused on better time management. My arms and legs are sore from push-ups and lunges, I've written letters and Valentine cards and managed to read in the mornings. These are things I told myself at the start of the year (but didn't claim were resolutions, because those aren't that cool anymore and are a little too risky) that I'd work on. It feels good to be diligent and keep my word. I get so fed up with myself when I don't do the things I set out to, and sometimes it's simply the difference between sleeping in that extra hour or "quickly" hopping online to check e-mails.

I'm sure some of you, especially the moms, are thinking "you lucky duck!" I know a little kiddo added to the mix will require a whole new level of determination and self discipline, but that's precisely why I want to get myself in order. Sometimes when I read other bloggers I can't believe how much they do. They're like super women - especially the ones with kids.

So what's your secret?? ;-) Do you have rules for yourself, like no internet before lunch or waking up an hour early to read? I'd love to hear.
Isn't my husband dapper?

  1. I made the same goals-but-no-resolutions policy. I'm basically doing weekly resolutions so that I have to check back each week and reassess what's working. I am still trying to force myself to get up earlier to read and do something meaningful. I feel similarly guilty when I can't meet my own goals, but I'm trying to not be so hard on myself that all my spare time gets eaten up by stress and I still don't accomplish anything. - Leah

    1. Weekly goals are good, they stay fresh that way. I just have to get better at deciding on the weekly goals, haha. It's true, it's easy to be hard on ourselves and then waste time doing that. :-)

  2. i don't have any rules for myself..i'm not much of a routine person. but on the days i have the car (and drive kids to preschool, speech, ect) I don't often check blogs or write blog posts. and on the days that I'm home I find time. sometimes they are watching a cartoon or its rest time in the afternoon. it works :)
