I’m doing some mental math and coming up short. See, I get up every morning at 6:00 a.m. and need to be at work at 7:00. Most mornings find me scurrying to get everything done that I need to do – water the dogs, feed the cats, chop up greens and feed the lizards, pack my lunch, plus shower, and dig through the closet for something to wear, and primp. I consistently stroll in the door at AcronymCo at 7:05.
That five extra minutes was bugging me, so with the new year I started trying to get more done the night before, so that I’d have less to take care of in the morning. Last night I filled up the dog’s water, chopped greens and stuck them in a baggie so all I would have to do is dump them in the dish in the lizard’s tank, put my lunch together in its sack in the refrigerator, and laid out my clothes. The only thing I had to do this morning was roll out of bed, dump a can of cat food in the cat’s dishes, let the dogs out, dump the greens, then grab my coffee and get ready.
I strolled into work at 7:06. I didn’t have to pack my lunch, or chop greens, or fill the dog’s water, or dig for clothes. So why wasn’t I earlier to work? I can’t figure it. It’s bugging me.
Positive: I made a fantastic potato broccoli cheese soup for dinner last night (recipe is up on World Famous Nosh) and I brought leftovers for lunch today.
Productive: Working through lunch on some stuff for Beyond Megapixels and UpTake. It seems to be working out well for me to use my lunch hour at AcronymCo for my writing gigs.
Plan: I have meetings galore today so I won’t be able to walk the circumference of the campus like I wanted to. So, cardio (and some light weights) tonight, plus I’m going to make some updates to the Sandstone website so that tomorrow night will be free to dial into Taoist Biker’s radio show.
