outlook recharge

I feel fatigued lately, skin shows it... Last November was a challenge, Ecai was hospitalized for more than a week.  December was hectic, aww that tight sched.  January was a challenge, work related duties.  And oh, here you are February, can you give me some love?

I have been totally feeling down and pessimistic that this morning I invoked the power of positive thinking.  Ha!  I resolve to lessen my worries by enjoying the ride a bit more.  But how to completely do this, I have no idea.    

Maybe... yeah, I better enjoy the ride again!

Dream Daily Schedule

Start the day early... 5:30am and leave for work at 7:30am.
Work until 6pm only. Necessities until 9pm and put Ecai to bed.  Stay up only upto 10:30pm.

Funny, right?  No details at all. Oh well, waking and sleeping time is all I care about. =p

Making a List And Checking It Twice...

No, I am not late... I am making a list of things I hope I can get done within this year.
2011 was very relaxed, or should I say... lacked focus, I do this and stop to do that... I see this and get that... all messed up and foolish.  immature and lazy.

For 2012 I must...

1. USE MOBILE PHONE - I do not use or check my mobile all the time.  I just pick it up to check an app and to take a pic.  Yeah, I am very bad with replying to SMS and calls.  It is usually dead and is at the bottom or nowhere in my bag.

2. BE ORGANIZED - Yup, this says it all, from my bag to kit to wallet and to cabinets.  A place for everything and everything in its place.  Tidy up at least bi-monthly.

3. EXECUTE AS PLANNED - Paging MR Husband.

4. BLOG OFTEN - Plan to do this, so I can always review goals.  And share.  And be reminded of the things that I should be thankful of.

5. DO SOME ART - Yeah... projects and me. =p

I need to...
  • Continue Ecai on weekends and print 2011 album.
  • Have fun in May.
  • Do some 31 new somethings.

time management, huh

Last week, I had a inkling to document how I spend my 24 hours.  And I was dismayed with the result! On the average weekday I have: 10 hours for work, 2 hours travel, 2 hours for self hygiene and basic necessity like eating, 3 hours with daughter, 6 hours of sleep, 1 hour for hobbies or etc, 0 hours for husband, 0 hours for thinking and planning, 0 hours for house chores, 0 hours for relationship building... and oh my!

So last weekend, I had to try valuing my time and making the most of it.  Woke up early and this is how I had spent 2 weekend days:  5 hours with ecai on a park, taking care of her, playing with her. and 2 hours buying what I need for a hobby, 2 hours personal hygiene and basic necessity, 3 hours ecau time, 4 hours hobby with tv time - that's for saturday.  For Sunday, 1.5 hours prep for mass, 1.5 hours at mass, 3 hours with ecai, 4 hours on work-related task, 1 hour for preparing things, 2 hours traveling, 2 hours preparing to sleep!  Wow, with all those I was able to spend time with ecai, finish work assignments, and have some time to do my cross stiching project!  But the weekend was so tiring!  That I still feel aches!

So in the end, from now on, since I value my self, I need all the rest I can get.  Period.
