Last week as I was making plans for my week, I spotted an empty block out of the corner of my eye. I didn't want to stare, for fear it would disappear. As the week progressed, nothing came up that had to go in that spot. The excitement was building! What would I do with three whole, unclaimed hours?

I made a plan for how I would use (code for not waste) the time. I didn't want to lose track of the time or get distracted. I made a schedule, I established a reward system. (I know, what a dork! Brutal honesty here.)

Unfortunately, I didn't work on anything fun, like sewing, quilting, or scrapbooking. I did work on something that I have been hugely behind on at home, that once I get caught up, it will be really easy to stay caught up. I made amazing progress, getting over a big hurdle, so I am thrilled!

This week? No such luck. I have had something every night this week and have gotten behind on everything. That same time block will be used for getting control of the piles of laundry (mostly clean) and all the other stuff that has piled up in the mean time.

C'est la vie!

Okay, you are so organized it's SICK!! lol I sure wish I could've learned some of that skill growing up. Therefore, I don't think I passed it on very well to my kiddos either. Darn.
