I'm going to try and keep this short. I know I have said this before, but I am exhausted! Today was the last of these longer-than-usual days at work, and I am happy to say that despite the increased hours the apartment is looking better than ever. I am making deep-cleaning progress everyday with my Zone work, and thanks to the 10 minute Weekly-Home-Blessing chore I do every day it stays maintained. It's been difficult considering I have been going into work at my usual time, but staying 3 hours longer, leaving me less time in the afternoon/evening to do everything I need to do.
Tomorrow will be the first day of what will be my regular work schedule for the rest of the summer/early fall. I will be leaving the house 1 1/2 hours later than I have been lately, so I think I will continue with my current bedtime/wake up schedule, but shift my Zone and WHB work into that extra 1 1/2 hours I now have in the morning. This way I won't be doing my cleaning while I am already exhausted after work and will now have my evenings free to relax before it's time to start my Before Bed Routine. It's like found time! (At least, I'm hoping that's how it feels.)
Here is how I think this will go:
7:30- Wake up.
7:30-10:15- Morning Routine/10 mins WHB, 15 mins Zone work.
10:15: Leave for work.
5:45- Get home from work.
5:45-9:30 Afternoon/after work routine (even though that BabyStep has yet to come!), consisting of nothing more than feeding the cats, laundry, and balancing the checkbook. Relax!
9:30- Begin Before Bed Routine.
That's the plan, man!
OK, I need to end this, I want to spend 15 minutes tackling this cluttered cleaning closet:
