After yesterday’s announcement, I was pretty keyed up and had the absolute worst night of sleep in recent memory. It took me two hours to fall asleep in bed because I was thinkingthinkingthinking, and I was wide awake again after about two hours because I was thinkingthinkingthinking.
I came downstairs at about 3:30 a.m., turned on the television and opened the ole’ laptop. I worked on a post, checked emails, and scrolled Facebook–but not for long because my friends were all sleeping at the time and there were few updates posted since I had gone to bed earlier.
I finally went back to sleep on the couch and got about two more hours of less-than-satisfactory sleep.
I think it’s time for me to have a little re-org…in my head. I have been in a state of transition for the past month or so, and it’s time to get into a routine. There’s just SO MUCH going on.
Though I am still working for the salon, I’m no longer working in the salon: I’m doing marketing from home. This has opened up my schedule tremendously and gives me more time to work on writing projects (including this blog, my articles for NAILPRO Magazine, and something major that I just found out about only ten minutes ago), SociaL RevUp, and Listen To Your Mother. In addition, I’m back to doing Jillian Michaels’ 30-Day Shred and attempting to add even more workouts to supplement the one spin class I teach and the two zumba classes I take each week.
It’s enough to make a person go a little batty.
The only part of my schedule I have down pat is the 30-Day Shred part. I normally do that first thing in the morning, and if I have time I’ll walk the dog, especially if I need to get some serious work done, because she’s better behaved when she’s tired.
The other parts of my day? A huge mess, schedule-wise.
I’m starting my rather obsessive “to do list” behavior, and soon many of my home’s surfaces will be covered in Post-it Notes and random notebooks that hold scribbled-on pages, the notes only legible to me and nobody else.
I need a plan. Any suggestions? I’d love to hear them, especially from those of you who work from home!
