Sheduling Considerations

Monday and Thursday each week I automatically get just over an hour break during lunch time. This is a direct result of volunteering at the my child's school. I simple read a book with her and another one of her classmates (a different child each week or so) and give them a test on the book. The tests are predesigned on the computer, all they have to do is remember what they read.


The morning of these days is spent doing quick task to tie up loose ends. The afternoons are spent with more loose ends while I wait for the school bus. Monday afternoons find us in speech therapy; this is my second break that day. The speech therapist is one of the kid's favorite people in the world and I have no concerns of the baby coming out with bad habits. I've even been known to run ultra quick errands during this time.

Writing for a living, I work from home. There have been some scheduling interruptions that have been taken care of during the last few years. No longer do I have unannounced, univited guests popping up while I am in the middle of attempting to meet a deadline. The achievement of this small, helpful accomplishment is one that I will spare the details of as they are far from pretty.

This has led to an increased amount of productivity during daylight hours. That is for the things that I wish to write, the things that I do not are falling by the wasteside. I am not sure why or even when it happened but I have noticed a lack of desire to write when the mood does not suit me. I am not sure why but that is the way things work for the moment.

Lately I would spend more time reading what others have written and socializing with online friends that doing much of anything else. Well, I seem to have lost the entire point, so until next time I'll be going.

Do you ever stop in the middle of a thought and forget where it was going? That could explain why I cannot focus a bit right now.

Twenty Years of Lessons

The last twenty years have taught me things that I never learned in school. The lessons make me wonder what the big deal about finish this degree or that vocational program is. So what have I learned?

Lessons of Assumptions and Beliefs

Recently I went over a few lessons from the last twenty years. Today I have decided to exam a few of them. I have trouble focusing so having the lessons to look back on is a good way to focus my energy right now. Let's begin.......

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.
