So...the situation I write about below may not technically count as "going haywire", but it's dilemma for me all the same.
As much as I welcome Summer Break, it comes with its own set of challenges. Namely the hours between 7am and 4pm. During the school year, those hours are accounted for. In the summer, I'm responsible for making those hours productive.
I am keeping my routine for the most part, and I have an ever-growing To-Do list, but there are times in the day that I don't do much or I seem to get sucked in to doing something NOT on my list.
At the time of this notebook entry, I don't know how I will solve this problem. But, I do know I can't let time pass me by this summer. August will be here before you know it, and I will be writing about a totally different time problem...not having enough.
Just before I was about to hit "Publish", I heard a familiar voice (in my head and not my voice) telling me to keep a "Done List". A list of the things I get done during the day. Some of those things may not be on my To Do list, but I will have accurate account of what I have accomplished for the day.
I think I'll try it. Thanks Jennifer Laffin for being that little voice I hear that keeps me on track.
