Goals. I need some.

I'm reinstating a schedule for myself. Because not going to bed and not having to wake up to be anywhere are sorta compelling me to be more and more lazy. So I'm going to get up at 6 and shower immediately after. Otherwise, I wake up when I hear the kids, walk down the hall and get them breakfast, and then I lay on the couch and die for the next little while.

And while laying on the couch in a comatose state used to be my dream of a perfect day, that day didn't include a whole bunch of short people that can open doors and climb up the pantry shelves to get themselves a snack, while inadvertently knocking down boxes of goldfish and pretzels and 87 cans of tomato sauce.

So I am going to pretend I'm in school again, and set my alarm. I am going to wake up, and get ready, and hope to all goodness that I don't have to vacuum so much.

  1. Can you get some goals for me? My only goal for the day is dressing myself, and I have a 60% success rate.

  3. Boy, I'm right there with ya! I totally do the whole cereal-and-a-movie thing for the kids while I catch some more Zs. The sad part is that my phone DOES beep at me at 6:30. I just hit snooze a billion times.

  4. My daily goal usually includes showering before 3:00 in the afternoon.
    My kids will be out of school soon, and I'm looking forward to sleeping in.

  5. I've been in the goal-setting mood as well--looking forward to the whooooooole summer. Without any structure it seem almost unlikely that I'll make it through. It's all about setting the little (really little) goals we can feel good about accomplishing everyday!

  6. The same thing happened to me except that my son somehow stole the Nesquick out of the cupboard and ate it with a spoon and fork. Fun cleaning that up! My goal is 7:30 Am which I can do with no problem. 6 AM is torture for me.
