What a dick huh?! Can't cope with your puppy being a silly puppy in the park? Well no.. it was a culmination of a couple of days solo parenting, a backlog of work due to being at Pro Blogger the weekend before, a bit of upsetting news the week before and well.. LIFE!
I have this once in a while when I have a lightbulb moment about a certain area of my life that is in total dissaray. It could be work, being Mum, staying fit or just managing to keep us all fed for a week successfully.
So I had a little cry and came home to do what I always do to get back on track..
1. Write a LIST of what I need/must/want to do each week
2. Get my Calendar out
3. Schedule it all in..
4. Breathe again knowing I will stick to it for at least a month or so until I need to re do it again :)
Why do I do it? For two reasons.. it puts me back in control and it also shows me how even with all the things I have to do that I do still have some spare time. Ok so it does not have the random chores on there and I have a few gazillion emails a day to add in but I know there are enough hours in a day and also that I have enough hours in the day that if I stick to this I could actually have the odd night off or a lunch with a girlfriend.
So now my week looks like this..
It is hectic and there are things that will cross over on certain weeks but when that happens I just shift the one that is shiftable..

Do you plan or does looking at my schedule make you go cold and clamy?
