I’m a school bus driver. I get up at 4:30 every morning and have been doing that for 11 years. Imagine my dismay when, at 5:00 this morning, my eyes pop open and I’m ready to get up and do stuff. Oh no, brain, we’re on break we can sleep late. My brain isn’t listening.
Don’t get me wrong I’m excited about the things I’m getting done but as 3:00 rolls around I start getting really sleepy. I missed a whole YouTube video when I fell asleep at the desk. I made coffee. I considered that I might regret that decision at 10:00 or so when I was trying to go to sleep for real but I pushed the thought away and drank a great big mug of Dunkin Donuts chocolate flavored coffee. Good Stuff.
It doesn’t help that the things I’m doing at the moment are not very stimulating. I’m updating my planners and consolidating the info into my hourly planner. That sounds confusing, I know. Let me explain.
I have one planner for my budget. It’s a Happy Planner that is made specifically for budgeting. Around the middle of one month I start filling in bills and due dates for the next month. Then when I’m doing my budget I write what bills get paid when in this planner. I also decorate it with stickers because it’s fun.
I have another planner for my business. I schedule my home parties, my Facebook parties, my meetings, my social media posts. Everything Tupperware related goes in this planner. It’s a direct selling planner that I purchased from a group of direct sellers that I’m apart of.
I have a personal planner. I got this one from Hobby Lobby on sale and I’m not sure what kind it is. I like it because it’s a pretty peachish color but it is kinda small. I put all my daughter’s doctor’s appointments in there plus everything I’m doing for church and things my husband wants me to do.
So every night I transfer things from all three planners into an hourly planner so I can have all the info in one place. Well, that’s the plan anyway. It doesn’t always get done and I’m playing catch up now.
That’s why I’m drinking coffee at 3pm.
