Friday night, my dogs decided to fight on the couch, throwing my computer down and shattering my flash drive in the process. I lost my post for Thursday, and I didn’t have time to re-type it, so you’re having a two for one deal today for the How do you find the time? posts.
Thursday (I’m doing this from memory, there might be inaccuracies):
6:30 : get up, do my son’s morning routine, take a shower, take out the dogs, eat breakfast, prepare lunches.
7:30 leave for work. On the longest bus ride, type my post for Wednesday.
9:00 start work. No time for break this morning.
12:30 : lunch time. While eating, post Wednesday post on blog. Go on Facebook, then write for the last half hour.
1:30 back to work.
