My life has become a routine of sorts. I wake up in the morning, get ready for the day, drop the kids off to school and home again to do work around the house or PJM. Some days I have more time than others, depending on the hours I work at my outside of the home job. It amazes me sometimes just how much work I am capable of getting done in a given week and some days, I feel like Super Woman. On my off days, I sometimes feel as though I didn’t get nearly enough done.
So as I was talking to my mother the other day about all of this because let’s face it, what’s more interesting than listening to a control freak plan out their day or find ways to cut their work load/work time in half, I joked about wanting to install a time clock in my house to keep track of all the hours I put into every project I try to tackle throughout the work week. I would punch in when I began each task to see just how much time I am wasting throughout the day.
Then maybe I could figure out new ways to make better use of my time. I could get everything accomplished within a timely manner and have more time to snuggle up on my babies. If I had all of that extra time, could you imagine how many more projects I could tackle? It would be insanity in my household, though it already technically is out of control. Or I could pick up even more hours at my outside of the home job and start building a real savings account again. Just sitting here, I am imagining all of the fabulous possibilities! Now to figure out how to get my hands on a time clock..
