Butter Spread over Too Much Bread

Spring announced itself first with the invasion of robins and other birds. Rain came next to satisfy thirsty lawns, gardens and trees.

Construction season now rumbles full-ahead with phone calls at my work with clients wanting surveys, subdivision plats and street plans.

I will have no time to pop in here or anywhere else online for a single minute until my son goes to bed every night — or if I plop out of bed sooner than I normally do (yeah, in my dreams. Ha).

I’ve also thought a lot about managing my time better. I waste too much of it watching TV, on the internet, etc. So, I’ve set up a schedule in the two hours of free time available every night:

  1. One hour to clean the house (say one room a day. Wish me luck on that).
  2. A half-hour reading
  3. A half-hour writing/editing.

It’s a simple schedule, and if I keep it up, I’ll accomplish quite a bit.

Thinking about all I need to do without doing it only wastes more time, because I’m also worrying about it. 

Since when has worry accomplished anything?

You likely won’t see me much here or at your blog, although I’ll try to spend another half-an hour a night if I’m not too wiped out.

My Serialization Project will continue, though. It takes less than five minutes for me to add a chapter before I go to bed and schedule it for the next morning. Cool feature, that.

Have a great week, and I’ll see you when I see you.
