My normal day is full of homeschooling, cooking, cleaning, and… okay, reading. I like to read.
I also like hanging out with my husband. He’s a quality-time love language kinda guy- and he works from home, and I (sometimes) do the bookkeeping. So that’s some time.
Also, our house is never empty. Between working from home and homeschooling, the most alone time I get is in the afternoons, after the kids finish their schoolwork (2:30ish.) and before I start dinner (4:00ish.) Which is a sorta long time… But you have to also take into account that I’m a little lazy! And it’s easy to get distracted by a phone call or a book I’m reading or podcasts or a recipe for applesauce muffins or scrubbing the cabinet fronts (hahahah… Gotcha. That was a good one. Scrubbing.)
No, for reals. When I wake up at the same time as everyone else, and I’m around all day, it’s hard totake advantage of the time I have in the afternoon… I get a little work done, but I often waste it.
So I think I need to get up early. I need to set my alarm, go to sleep early, and then when it goes off I need the discipline to crawl out of my warm cozy blankets… and write. Early morning is great, isn’t it? I mean, it’s quiet. it’s lovely. It’s… the early morning, right?
