24: We all start with this, right? Let's hope so, otherwise, the time-space continuum is totally screwing me.
1.5: Hours getting self/kidlets ready for day. (22.5 hours remaining)
9: Hours at the day job (includes lunch break) being all corporate analysty and stuff. (13.5 hours remaining)
1.5: Hours commuting to/from day job. (12 hours remaining)
4: Hours making dinner, prepping Husband's lunch for work, sending Husband off to work, puppy stuff, playing with kids and then getting them ready for bed. (8 hours remaining)
1: Hour cleaning up from all the previously stated activities. (7 hours remaining)
1: Hour catching up on social networking, emails, etc that I may have missed throughout the day - not usually as I'm tethered to the BlackBerry, but it's happened. (6 hours remaining)
1-3: Hours writing
So if you do the math ... this leaves me about 3-5 hours for sleep.And I'm making do for now. I'd rather use the earlier in the day hours to play with the kidlets and hang out with Husband. I'll take time from my sleep to use for writing instead of taking the time away from the family. It's my sacrifice, but man, it's no wonder I'm so freaking tired all the time. This explains so much!
Okay, I need a nap.
So out of curiosity - what does YOUR 24-hour weekday look like? What do you sacrifice to get it all done?
