Are we too busy?

A reoccurring theme that crops up when talking with friends and family is how busy our lives are. The more I thought about it the more I wanted to (being the nerd I am) physically see my schedule to perhaps help me slow down. I’m an organising FREAK I Love control, I love being busy and I procrastinate like a pro. So step into my world.

9th – 15th March
Monday: Laundry, wash up, visit Mum n Dad, spot of cooking for the week, Dinner out with friends from the States.
Tuesday: hot-pools with Ellie and Georgia, (about an hour drive each way) make tea, go shopping after Liam goes to bed, fold laundry watching Boston Legal.
Wednesday: Die hair, Work and dinner at the in-laws.
Thursday: Work, pick up DVD player for mum, back into town for Dinner with more friends.
Friday: Work, Massage, (Discover the dress I wanted to wear to Bex’s wedding next Thur is probably too short) spend lunchtime in a panic looking for a new dress. Admit defeat. Go home and furiously clean up house before friends come over to play…. Play
Saturday: Wake up regretting amount of booze drunk, Work. Make tea and extra stuff for the rest of the weekend, Attempt to re-button Liam’s waistcoat for the wedding while watching Angel season 4 the house always wins Find a dress for the wedding in bags downstairs (narrowed it down to two) Put said dresses in the wash. Have the first early night in AGES.
Sunday: Work, Readings for class… Take up William’s pants



16th – 22nd March
Monday: Laundry, spend quality time with William, concentrate on the potty training!!! Maybe make a “I miss you” card for Pop pop, IF William sleeps try get my online status working for uni. dinner at the in-laws
Tuesday: Pick up petals, visit Mum and Dad, homework if William sleeps, find smart shoes for William, dinner, wedding rehearsal at 7.30
Wednesday: Work, last minute check of clothes and pack daybag for William
Thursday: Rebecca and Jeremy’s wedding.
Friday: DAY OFF!!! Recover from Jeremy and Rebecca’s wedding… homework, perhaps get a bit of study in…

Interesting exercise. It really brings it into focus all written out like that doesn't it. I might do the same.

I also organise to the nth degree in defence of being too busy.

Hey, I have a bag of clothes for William if you are keen. I'll drop them off some time.
