When I've got duties I have to do, or if people are counting on me, I have no problems getting up and rolling through my day. But when it's just me depending on me, I can't seem to get going.
Today, I woke up a little before 8 am (family went to the coast, and the noise of getting 5 kids ready and out to the car is enough to wake me up. Plus, they left the hall light on right outside my room). It's now 11 am, and what have I done?
-> caught up on my livejournal reading
-> ate some leftover pizza and read the paper
-> fed the bird
-> vacuumed most of the house (did you know that kids track dirt?)
According to this list, I look somewhat productive. However, I've got a lot more left to do:
-> work out (I'm in my workout clothes, but am I working out? The correct answer would be no.)
-> mail out some packages/letters
-> return books to the library
-> plan some stuff for my NZ trip -- I haven't got anything figured out yet. I don't even know where I'll be each day
I'm going baby steps at a time, but I still find the productivity lacking. Seriously, I need to learn to be more accountable to me, because this laziness will not fly in the grad school world.
