Manic Monday

On Monday, I decided to write down everything that I did and at what times like some of you have already done. After reading A Mother's Rule of Life: How to Bring Order to Your Home and Peace to Your Soul, I wanted to actually see where my time was going and what was the natural flow of my day, so I could tweak it a little and make it more efficient. I planned on doing this for a week, so I could have some sort of an average. I don't know about you, but though I plan on waking up at the same time everyday, it just doesn't happen. Also, some days I'm more tired than others and do less, and other days I do a lot more. However, I think after only doing it for one day, I have a pretty good idea of how things go and what I'm capable of. So, if you're interested, this was my Monday.
