My last post was a week ago! I'm still working out this new lifestyle of hybrid homeschooling, and not getting the hang of it very well. You would think, and, I admit, I do, too, that I could blog on the days Meg and Pip are at school, but it doesn't work that way. Not when they're home, either. I can barely get any time on the computer anymore.
When they're at school, I don't want to spend all my time at the computer---which is a real temptation. You know what a black hole the internet is!
Anyway, today's coping strategy is to alternate work with play. The normal routine for that is 45 mins. of work relieved by 15 minutes of recreation, like reading, and then back to the work. It's a great method for getting things done and not feeling like a total drudge with no time for yourself! Today, however, I'm alternating things that need to be done with things I'd rather do. Some of the "rathers" are actually work, like decluttering, so I'm getting lots done today.
I have 12 more minutes here before going back to the cleaning routine. I managed to get the family room spic-and-span while watching "Call the Midwives"----needs and rathers at the same time! Woot!
Next up: cleaning the kitchen while listening to a podcast.
How do you organize your time when you need a little relaxation and have a lot of things to do?
