In my first few days of "Stay at Home Daughter" endeavors, it became very clear that my schedule was really out of whack. I was staying up extremely late, sleeping in all morning... wandering around not getting things done, etc etc. I knew this needed to change if I was ever going to start being productive.
So last night before I went to bed (at 10:30, seriously early compared to normal) I wrote out a list of things I wanted to do everyday. Starting at 6:30am I wake up and shower/get ready, then Bible study, Breakfast, Piano, French (God help me), some kind of craft/project, house cleaning, leisure reading, and then history. That all adds up and lasts until about five in the evening.
I know it may seem so silly to schedule everything like that, but I really feel like I need to discipline myself to follow a routine, especially when I would much rather just snooze all day. I think this will really help me to be productive and meet some goals that I have set. Even the leisure reading. If I don't force myself to do things like that, it's easy to just say, "Oh I'll read some later" and then I never do it.
So here we are, my next step at this whole "Growing up" thing. Do you have some feedback? Does anyone else have a routine that they follow? :)
