Monday Confessions

Can I admit something to you?  I do much better at prescheduling and writing well thought out blog posts when my days are somewhat driven by schedule.  On those days, those busy school and work days, I write up to a week of posts in advance.  I think about them, I ponder them, and then I sit down on the weekend to write them.

I'm not good at keeping to that plan when I don't have a schedule.  I tell myself things like "look how much time there is, you can do it later" and then later comes and I repeat myself, until I find myself frantically staring at a to do list and realizing that the post I'd planned to write - the well thought out one that I'd been pondering, is not going to get written for the day I'd hoped to see it go live.

Today is one of those days.  I'm writing this post frantically, somewhat late on Sunday night, because I just realized that Monday is one of the days with posts that I can't quite just throw together, and I do actually have a schedule on this particular Monday.

I've agreed to spend the morning hanging out with one of my favorite small people, while her momma does some work.  But this particular small person and her parents live on the other side of the city, which neccessitates me catching a 6:17am bus to arrive on time for this hanging out gig.

And so, it's another Monday with a thrown together post, because I'm going to love on a small person, and I need to be awake to do it.  Fear not, however, I go back to school in only 9 more days, and then my life will resume it's previously scheduled structure and discipline!

i'm like this too. i get so much more done when i'm in a time crunch. in fact, sometimes i try to artificially engineer time crunches to get my butt in gear. :)

Terri - I am remarkably glad (and oddly comforted) to hear that I'm not the only one who does that :D When I was still in the job interviewing for administrative skills stage, I'd often say that one of my greatest strengths was that I worked extremely well to deadlines! :D

i suspect you're my long lost niece or cousin or little sister. i'm sure we'll find the adoption evidence if we search long enough. :)

of course we will. I have known family all over the lovely midwest. It's by extension entirely likely that we are simply unknown family :D
