My Schedule-- Where do I find the time?

 I have been... lectured lately on my "priorities".  My husband asked me to pick three things in my life that I have to consider my "priorities", things that I should work on to make my life more fulfilling.

These are the three that I came up with:
1. My job
2. My health
3. Writing

I feel bad that he's not in there, but he asked me to pick three. 

I try to reflect this on the way I spend my time...

I wake up at 5am.

After morning human time, I should compress from 5:30-6:30. Compression involves putting on a huge pair of blue space bants, hooking myself up to a machine and sitting still for an hour while my legs are pumped to move around fluids that have built up due to illness and heart problems.

I said should. I usually end up journalling and eating breakfast.

  • 6:30-7:00 I get ready for work. Dress myself and all of that fun stuff.
  • 7 to 7:30, maybe pick up breakfast or make myself something fast that I can eat in the car and get to work. Otherwise, just drive to work.
  • 7:30-8:30- Prep for my day.
  • 8:30-11:45- Teach
  • 11:45-2- Lunch and Prep, which is mostly grading and making handouts and meetings and other fun teacher stuff.
  • 2-3:35- Teach some more.
  • 3:35-4ish- Clean up my classroom and sometimes talk to other teachers who stop by. (less of this since they moved me away from the other teachers).
  • 4-5, run errands.
  • 5-6:30: Make and eat dinner. If it's not my turn, I'll do some reading.
  • 6:30-7:30 Write or crochet, whatever creative endeavors my brain is working on.
  • 7:30-8:30- Compress... again. More sitting still. Mostly I read or watch TV. My current watch is Mythic Quest or Reboot. Both cute shows.
  • 8:30-9:30- Get ready for bed, shower, self care.
  • 9:30- bed. 

My doctor and my husband want me to find at least 30-60 minutes a day for cardio activity and some time for strength training.
