If you are among the small cadre of people who read my blog regularly, you may be sick of my schedules… or maybe not. But I try to post one every few months so that everyone has something to refer to when I talk about scheduling. Since this is not groundbreakingly new stuff, I’ll be brief.
This was a Saturday when were were having people over for dinner. We were going apple picking in the morning, stopping at a farmers market on the way home and doing our food shopping. The plan was to get a workout in before I had to start cooking for the dinner party. As I’ve said in the past, I don’t make a schedule every day. At this point, I’m pretty good at rolling through my day without writing it down. (Years of practice my padawans.)But on this particular day, there were lots of moving parts, many transitions, and I had to actually write it down to see if/how it would all fit.
The schedule was tight but it looked like it all fit… barely. In fact everything moved just a bit slower than anticipated and I forgot to account for putting the groceries and the apples away. Ultimately, I decided not to work out. (A decision that I rarely make. But in this case I prioritized having the meal mostly done when company arrived so that I could take full advantage of a chance at social interaction, which is also a priority for me.) I’m posting this particular schedule because it is very simple and straightforward. Maybe you wouldn’t think a day with this few things would need a schedule. I needed one!
