Since I am not working this season, in the traditional sense, I am finding I have a lot of time on my hands!
Until recently, I’ve worked for other people. This meant I had a work schedule. And of course, my other activities had to fit in around that timetable!
I knew when I could go into town to get groceries… what days I would do laundry… and when I would be able to go and explore the local area!
Now that I am working from home, my schedule is my own. I can do what I want, when I want!
However, this is proving to be a challenge for me!
Since relocating, mom and I have new areas to explore! Which we’ve been doing just about everyday since we’ve arrived!
Although I’ve enjoyed this freedom, I am finding that I am not getting much else done!
Maybe this doesn’t make sense to anyone else, but I found that I got more done, when I knew exactly when I had to work… and when my schedule allowed me time for other things!
Thus I began to strategize on how I can plan my work, and then work my plan!
Knowing that I am a morning person, and mom is not – she doesn’t get up until the crack of noon – I can schedule my time to work in the mornings before she gets up! This allows me to do my writing, check my emails, edit my photos, prepare some recipes and create some jewelry!
And so I don’t feel overloaded – trying to do everything, everyday – I have scheduled myself certain days to write, certain days to work on my photography, and yet other days for creating recipes or working on my jewelry pieces!
Then each day, once my work is done, I have the ability to stay at home and enjoy a meal I have created, or if neither of us feel like cooking, we can go out to eat!
I have even scheduled myself to have two days off each week! It is those days that we do laundry and go exploring!
Until next time,
Peace, love and safe travels!

I totally get this!
