Random Bits Like a Checkin

So I can't do everything I want to do in a day and I've been mulling over this conundrum. I'm going to have to break up my weeks into types. Below are the different categories, with the highest priorities listed first.

We'll still have sick weeks, because of course having a legitimate illness (not just blahs or my normal exhaustion) will have to take precedence. Even if I wanted to work through an illness, I couldn't. When coupled with my already chronic fatigue, any little thing extra just destroys my ability to function.
I'll have one week scheduled (the one that would normally be my PMS or 'danger' week) with the extra time devoted to coping skills for addictive behaviors and lifestyle changes and learning about psychological things. This will happen like clockwork every third week.
Next on the list is tea party planning weeks. If this week coincides with a danger week, I'll just have a very light (mostly store-bought) spread. Otherwise, I'll try new recipes and have a fun, more intensive theme. This will work out because I'm probably dropping the parties to once or twice a month instead of every week.
Since I have more interests to divide than remaining weeks, I'm thinking of just going through them on a rotating basis and giving them all equal weight. The downside of that is in certain areas, if I only concentrate on something every one-in-eight or one-in-nine weeks, I may never get anywhere. I'm not sure this plan will actually work, but then again I won't know for certain until I've tried it. Just because it does or doesn't work for someone else doesn't mean it won't work for me. So, the remaining areas of concentration are Spanish, health/exercise, HIPS/volunteer work, writing, singing, computer-related projects (emails etc.), house-related projects (cleaning/inbox/redecorating), and media (movies/music/books). Okay, so realistically that puts extra interests at every one-in-ten weeks or less, probably 3-4 weeks a year.

If it does work, progress is going to be painfully slow. Of course, I'm still going to have spare time in any given week to pursue some random interest and certain things (like health and Spanish) I will have a bare minimum to meet every week, it's just that a few weeks of the year I will focus intensely on those particular things.

And I'm still juggling plates in the meantime, because of course I have to find the time to sit down and actually CREATE all these schedules (I have a template I made on my computer) and it's best to make them all at once without interruption. While also dealing with some social considerations and familial conundrums such as only my family can produce. And I'm STILL looking for that darn powerdrill charger so I can hang those bleepin' paper lanterns.
