November 27, 2013 – 3:18 pm | No Comment

I’ve travelled several times each month this year and it’s given me some lessons:

For March and April my goal was to get organized. 

The house is far from where I want it .  We did manage to throw out a lot of things we don’t need, therefore reducing clutter.  I learned that if I make it a workout, cleaning can go by pretty quickly.  I got one of the kids to help me with constantly picking up the living room (the boy helps, the girl prances about like a princess).  I am also getting less and less fearful about throwing things away or giving them away.  I grew up keeping all sorts of items because I could give meaning or think of a memory for anything.  Now, I’m learning to just let go of my attachment to material things.  It feels good to know that none of it really matters.  The best part about organizing is having diabetes related supplies all in one place for once.  I also have prescription expiration dates notedand prescription refills synchronized and hopefully this system will streamline the whole “diabetes stuff” related hassles. 

Anyway, onward to May and June!  My goal is to focus on creating.  I write for my blog every day, I write for other publications, I work on a forum, and I’m writing a book.  I’m also supposed to take care of the house and my twins during the day.  My kids being the most important job here means I have to focus on them during the day and find a time when they’re sleeping to work- instead of trying to do it while watching them.  It’s seriously a wonder I write at all considering so much of it is done with two little people on my lap trying to steal my mouse and delete my work.  So as much as I’m dreading it (because I treasure sleep) I know I’m going to have to wake up early every day to write.  Luckily, I’ve got two whole months to get into this habit.  Working at night is not a good option because the computer is in the bedroom and my husband goes to work early so this night owl needs to turn into an early bird. 

Any tips from any of you early risers?

    Hey, this didn’t show up on my blogroll?…hmm. I wonder if anyone else is having that issue?…

    Anyway…I am an early riser. If I have a post in mind, I wake up at 4am. I don’t like to write when others are milling about and/or yapping. :) I also want to be “present” for the family when everyone is awake.

    I usually go to bed by 9pm. Dave will do Joe’s bg check at like 11 or 12 and I then set my alarm for 4am…and do a check and then get up for the day. It works. I do get tired if I do it more than a couple of times a week though. I also drink a pot and a 1/2 of coffee a day. Not sure if that is good, sound advice though :)

    Have a wonderful Mother’s Day.
