Monday's Missed Goal

Monday, 13 February 2012

Another short post for today, I’m afraid.
I can’t even begin to tell you how eager I am to be on maternity leave, if for no other reason than not to have ‘real’ work to do. I also can’t wait to be finished with my classes. There just isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done that I need to get done, but unfortunately, I don’t seem to have a choice. I need to work, I need to finish these classes, I need to tend to my family, I need to keep the house up...
The list goes on and on, which brings me to...
Goal #9
Aim to have all ‘work’ (Biobank, editing, writing, coursework) finished by 5pm each day. Then I can devote my evenings to my family.
I think it’s safe to say that isn’t happening tonight. I am in over my head.
Today’s to-do list includes one task that should have been long finished, but isn’t because I spent Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday half-dead and three tasks which should have been finished yesterday, but I was too busy trying to catch up from last week. It also includes three tasks for today (this blog being one of them). Now, I know that I brought a lot of this on myself by taking 2 classes while working full time, but I am certain there was a time when I could juggle it all. That time has apparently passed.
So, tonight instead of want I want to be doing—writing and spending time with my hubby—I’m going to finish my essay notes and start writing the essay that is due Thursday night. The only high point… my gorgeous hubby made me a yummy dinner in the shape of a love heart.

Yep. I know you’re jealous.
