I am a list-maker, and a notekeeper. I have lots and lots of little snippets of paper with little notes on them. I am pretty good at keeping them corraled in one place, but occassionally I misplace something important, and then I forget to do whatever the note was reminding me to do! LOL! I like to live an orderly life, very routine, with starts and stops consistent from day to day. I prefer to know what the day will bring, and exactly what I must do to make ends meet, to finish each task, and to feel that sense of "well done" at the end of the evening. My scheduling has been a bit wonky since I started to work at Macy's. I don't have set hours, so each week my shifts change. I also now have school drop off and pick ups for my son (at college), which means I have to schedule my day around those times. Plus there are the other events in my son's life: piano, worship practice, youth group, etc. And, lastly, there is my school schedule which requires study time, writing and composing time, as well as seminar paper time. I have to budget and plan my days, my weeks, and my months, so that I make sure to get everything done that is necessary for our current state of affairs.
So today, I thought I would plan out a schedule for this coming year. I was used to doing this for my son for our home school program, but last year, we decided to graduate him early, and I let that job go. Now, I miss the structure, and I miss the organization of it all. Perhaps a new schedule for me will fit the bill and will help me feel more in control of the tasks the Lord has assigned to me.
I will post excerpts of it soon, but until then, I will focus on what needs doing today.
