Day 6 post

Fall sports are in their full glory this weekend, so we're spending a lot of time on that. I didn't do that much relaxing last night after I pressed publish on my post. The baby was still up so I went to cuddle him. Eventually he fell asleep in front of the door (as usual). I got the kids to bed with stories and such, and then I tried on a lot of items from my Nordstrom Trun… read more »

Day 5 post

Welcome to Day 5 of the 168 Hours Time Tracking Challenge! If you have made it this far, then you have made it through the workweek. Just two days to go!

However, today started a lo… read more »

Day 3 post

I made it to sleep probably around 11:45 last night. Hotel time can be me time and I was enjoying reading random articles online to unwind.

Another take-away: I need to learn to be more productive when I am on the road. The trou… read more »

Day 2 post

I am writing this from a hotel room in NYC. There isn't much to report of yesterday after the last entry. I worked until about 9:40 p.m., then chatted with the 9-year-old (who was still up). I shut the house and read until 10:30, then tried to go to sleep. It took a bit, given the later wake-up yesterday morning. I probably drifted off somewhere closer to 11. Here's… read more »
