Early to Bed, Early to Rise

I’ve been trying to realign my sleep habits. I am notorious for being up late at night, a time I really enjoy, but the world doesn’t really function at that time of the day and I’m not getting as much done in my mornings as I feel I need to. So, I’m either going to have to get up even if I’ve stayed up late, or just try to go to sleep earlier in the evening.

Frank had asked me if I had any kind of New Year’s Resolutions the other day. I wouldn’t say they were New Year’s Resolution, but I can’t deny the timing isn’t there. Besides the sleep habits, I told him that I felt I needed to ~ of all things~ get more organized and structured. Ok, before all of you who KNOW me start to laugh uproariously, lemme ‘splain!

To many people, I am sickeningly organized. I have my job because of my ability to organize. I’m looked to as the ‘group event’ person because of what?… you guessed it, I’m organized.

But I don’t feel as though I’m working up to my potential personally. I’ve been busily taking care of others and their events and still not taking care of me! I don’t plan enough time in the day for all the things I want to do. If I have planned the time then I am lacking the structure or the discipline to follow through with them. I suppose that’s more the point. I am trying to put some structure back into my world.

I love the job I’m in and my current situation, but let’s face it. I’ve been pretty free-falling for more than a few years (mostly because I really did need that for a bit~thanks!) but now I’m good and this vacation from discipline and structure is interfering with productivity! The trick for me will be, and it will be difficult ’cause I tend to be an all or nothing gal, trying to find a happy midpoint between the two concepts of structure and do-nothing time.

That being said, I guess I’ll go get a smidgen more coffee and go take care of my work  and email. I need to finish making a menu for next week, so that I can go to the grocery store and have food available here for toddlers since Heather, Sebastian and Lilli will be visiting for a week and I need to pick up and baby proof a bit as well. Here’s to a productive day! Cheers!


I believe you make your own reality whether good or bad. Thus, my favorite saying is, "Say what you mean and mean what you say."

  1. OMG, you sound just like ME! 🙂 I was workin' like crazy last night on bookkeeping stuff until 11 and then had to do "chores" and then unwind and the next thing you know it's 2AM and I'm up at 6:15AM! I can so relate to this… Thanks! 🙂

  2. Its so funny that you're blogging about this now because I've been thinking that I will have to find ways to add more structure to my life soon. Damn I hate that. 🙂

Well, Sharon, if you wanna know what I think....
