Because I often allow myself to go back to bed instead of waking up when I said I wanted to wake up, I thought I’d make a list I could look at (or remember, hopefully, since I doubt I’ll have this easily accessible) of the things I find I don’t always have time or energy for after I’ve been at the office all day.
- record a video
- eat breakfast
- watch TV
- write a letter
- catch up on YouTube
- do my nails
- practice my left-handed writing
Those are the things I thought of on my way to work.
Here’s what from that list I managed this morning, having woken at 4:45 am.
- journal (x3)
- watch TV
I had reached the fourth item on that list, thinking, “Hey, I really want to watch part of this show so I can finish the series and then concentrate on other things, like writing,” and I realized ugh, I haven’t been walking in forever, and I can totally listen to YouTube videos like they’re podcasts, and still walk.
So that’s what I did.
And I was late to work. Not a lot late, just three or four minutes. I know that’s a side effect of getting so comfortable at home with being able to see it was 8:45 and hey, I should get in the shower. But things are different now, and I really ought to be ready to go (except maybe for making lunch) by eight to get out the door and to the office on time.
I’ll work on that.
I hope you’re having a great day! And if you’re not having a great day, I hope you’re having an okay day. And if you’re not having an okay day, then I hope tomorrow is better. Loves!
