Today's Check-In (Sunday): Back to the Drawing Board

REVELATION: Seems I do better on my schedule if I post it. In fact, I don't follow it at all otherwise. So, starting today/tomorrow, I'm going to have to hop back on the saddle and start up with these things again. Of course, I'm still trying to figure out how I can cut this stuff down to the very basics because there just isn't enough time in the day to do everything like I want. We'll adapt as we go along, I guess.

At least now I know.

Comprehensive List of Tasks

  • strength exercises = for the next few weeks I have ballet on Saturday, so that pretty much covers it, because you shouldn't do strength exercises on the same areas two days in a row
  • chores = cleaned up and changed the sheets pre-party, also think I'm gonna hit the laundry today instead of tomorrow
  • grooming = bare minimum, I made the mistake of hopping on the scale this morning. After THAT, I popped the button of my pants while running errands.
  • meal (smoothie) = will do, I've been great on the smoothies
  • nap / rest = sadly, haven't been napping lately
  • Spanish = have been way behind on Spanish
  • meal (2 prep) = this is pretty much 'tea party prep'

Medication = yes, good
Sober / No Compulsions = no, drinking mead today

TOTAL SCORE = 6/11 = 55%

Today's Revelations

I need to post a daily checkup or I won't even think of following my schedule.

Time for blog posts and party planning needs to be added to the schedule. This post usually takes over an hour, in part because I have to think about what I write and in part because I take breaks to rest my hands and eyes.

If your baking pan is even a little damp, your baked product will stick to it. I often have to reuse pans or will wash pans that are dusty from being on the shelf for a long time and give them only a minimal dry off with a towel. There is a noticeable difference, however, in how much my actual baked goods stick to the bottom of the pan based on it's initial dampness. From now on, I will waste the paper towel and make sure the pan is absolutely bone dry before I put the dough/batter in.

Skip parties after special events. Not only will I be tired, but guest turnout is sure to be low. Better to skip a few Sundays to ensure a higher turnout on the remaining days.

jadxia: Perhaps

I'm just trying to think around my schedule, but right this second my brain does not appear to be working.
