Blogging topic - time wasters. I waste time online or wandering around trying to decide what to do first. It would help to have a plan although it needs to be somewhat flexible to deal with my kids. I also waste time by not having a game plan for dinner anymore. Since I've started working 3 part time jobs that take up 40 hrs a week (and soon possibly 50), I've had a hard time juggling housework to keep things at a level where I can cook and shop. I need to simplify and not expect to make the complex recipes I love daily, hire my kids to help more/at all, and maybe get a grocery delivery service with a regular list that I don't need to think about.
I've been seeing someone to talk about making time for myself. I started on my next two week assignment already this afternoon and took a long walk alone for 40 mins. I'm aiming for 10 mins two times a week. So far, so good. I multi tasked and listened to my podcasts and new music at the same time. It was nice. Soaked in the nature - baby bunnies and geese, flowering trees, etc. I do feel better.
