…or how I am trying to get it together.
I make it a point every morning to write in my journal, the paper one. I keep track of personal stuff and how I am feeling now that I am forty, particularly, how my body is changing so I can stay ahead of it, hopefully. I am not going to fool myself into thinking that pre-menopause will simply skip me, and I will go straight into menopause, which for me would be a blessing. (When you have cramps like contractions, you pray for menopause. Believe me.)
After the journal, I read the bible while drinking my first two glasses of water. I am in Judges now. Then, I go into the room where the kittens are and get Neville for some morning kitty time. He played in my lap, and when breakfast was ready, this is what I saw when I looked down. How can you move something so cute? I eventually had to pick him up and put him back in the room.
In a effort to organize my life and officially fight being scatter-brained, I have a date book.
It’s small; so, no problems having it in the truck. It has hard covers. I can write on it anywhere. I have, in the monthly part, written what posts I am going to put on my business blog. In the weekly section, I have them written down a week ahead. This is so I am not frantically trying to post something the day it is due. So far, this system is working great.
Keeping any major bouts with depression at bay, I should be able to keep to this schedule and post Monday through Friday, giving myself the weekend to take breaks. Do any of you schedule your weeks?
