The week is not quite over, but with payday and dr. appointments looming, the next two days are likely to see me missing, so here’s how it’s gone so far.
I decided to make my morning hours from eight to noon, which is proving…interesting, as it’s been years since I had a schedule at all, let alone such an early one! But I’m sticking to it, which is making me go to sleep earlier, thus giving me better “sleep hygiene” as my respiratory therapist says. Stopping strictly at noon is hard, the tendency to check email that one last time, or put out one last post…yeah. I’m working on it. So far I haven’t gone more than a half hour over, and I always remind myself that I can get back to it in 5 hours.
My night schedule is five to nine thirty, the half hour being a dinner break. So far I’m managing to keep away till then, using the hours between to write in my books or do a page or two of the lyrics workbooks. Yes, it’s still on the computer, but I’m keeping a strict “no email, no way, no how” policy in effect.
That’s basically it for Mon. Wed. and Fri. Tuesday and Thursday are -supposed- to be no computer at all days. :( Not so much so far…Wednesday being the one example. I tried to contain myself to surfing things connected with my other chores/work…craft sites, learning how to write lyrics sites, etc. But that kept leading me around to blogs I wanted to follow, and then to how-to-blog sites, then…yeah, you get the picture. I’m going to try harder next week! I’d say I’ll go sit in the library and write…but they have free, good wi-fi! *rolls eyes*
Wish me luck, y’all. So far, so…mediocre!
