Getting ahead...

Monday, 5 November 2012

Today is supposed to be my 'Mommy Post'. And it is, kind of.

I'm blogging this just after midnight in an attempt to get ahead for the day. I have 12 things on my to-do list for today and I seriously need to get to work if I'm going to finish everything.

There's this blog (which is about the only thing I can do from bed) and a whole slew of housework. Plus there are a few writing-related tasks-- three articles (only 2 on the list but 3 expire tomorrow) and my NaNo word count (I need one more 1700 word scene, but I'd like to aim for 2, it can't hurt to get ahead since Tues & Weds are so busy for me).

So I'm blogging now.

What does this have to do with Momminess? It's simple. Somehow this weekend I managed to get my work done AND play with the kids. That almost never happens. Usually something is left behind on my to-do list, but this weekend, miraculously, I stayed on track. And snuggled up for a couple of movies and played some card games.

Starting tomorrow, I'm going to track my time and see where I waste it during the day. I have to find ways to get the work done before dinner! I also know I need to start getting up earlier to write in preparation for going back to work (I wish maternity leave could last forever). I'll have to come back to that later :).

This week I'm going to concentrate on getting more done in the day. Starting with tomorrow. I'll let you know how it goes.

In other news, I hit 6781 words last night for NaNo! That's a little tiny bit past the target for the weekend!! I am so amazed that I started with not even a proper idea for a story and I'm doing so well! I'm going to try to set similar goals for my articles. I'm also hoping to get into the habit of writing everyday and carry it on after NaNo.

But more in that in Wednesday's writing post. Right now I need to go to bed. With the way things have been going, the baby should be up any minute.

Night all!
