The changes over the last few years have included getting rid of the physical diary. No more paper journal, simply appointment books with notes written in them.

Up Early

I was awake very late last night/early this morning writing while I spoke to my boyfriend as he worked. I had written some things up by hand and needed the time to type them up. It was refreshing to be able to talk to someone who relaxes me while I write.

I finished typing the pages, hit publish and read a few pages of a book while we talked. Eventually he had to go back to work and I went back to bed for a while.

Morning Coffee and a Phone Call

I had my midnight coffee reheated, and text my boyfriend. Well, he called to talk because I was the reason he was still awake after working all night and having to go back in tonight. The call was brief but sweet.

My day is always more productive when I get to start it talking to this wonderful man.


The kid was on a roll this morning, after much protest she got herself dressed and picked out her breakfast. She made a peanut butter, jelly, Apple and banana sandwich. Yuck. I had some tuna salad and apple water. I'm on a diet.

My little girl has counted out some toys to put away. So far they are still in the bin, and she is enjoying computer time as a result. Her imagination is being allowed to run wild with the creative videos.

Plans for Today

My plans for the day are simple. I'll be writing, reading and cleaning house. My morning snack is ranch flavored popcorn. Lunch and dinner will be rice with stir-fry vegetables. We are eating simply the next couple of days while I get back into the habit of writing.

My intention is to work my way up to a 20 hour week, it'll take awhile since I am out of practice but I am confident that I can achieve it. Today includes a crash course in effective scheduling since it has been so long since I set my own and stuck to it.

What? No toilet breaks? Not a good idea to strain your bladder!

I too need a scheduling crash course. It seems something always seems to throw off my work day
