2023 Time Tracking Challenge Day 2 – wrap up – Laura Vanderkam
Well, it wasn’t the world’s most peaceful Tuesday, however it wasn’t bad. After striking “release” earlier today, I did a bit more work, then ran an errand to the post workplace to send by mail some books. There was rather a celebration going on at the post workplace obviously, since I needed to wait on a parking area. However all things thought about, I do not mind going there– the clerks understand me, and I frequently state hi to somebody I understand while there.
After, I got back and dealt with numerous things up until 12:30 p.m., when my spouse and I consumed lunch together (leftovers for me, sandwich for him once again). I did a podcast-related call at 1 p.m., did numerous random things (it was that type of day) then got in my running clothing for another 3 mile run (1:35 -2:10 or two). Not far, not quick, however it wasn’t that cold, so it was great.
I then continued to not work for much of the remainder of the afternoon. My spouse left for the remainder of the day, so I had your house to myself, so I chose to play the piano for a bit (I would not do this while he was working from house and on calls …). Then I practiced some singing workouts, then chose to sing through the Agnus Dei from Bach’s B-Minor Mass (likewise bad as an accompaniment to somebody else’s Zooms). It’s an objective to practice singing more (3 times a week is a routine!) so I’m grateful I did that, however then I discovered it tough to get focused once again. It’s uncertain what I finished with this time. Work/admin/etc. I understand I did my puzzle for a couple of minutes, then kids began getting home, and I talked with my child for a bit. I did handle to get back to my desk from 4:15 -4:45 p.m. or two, at which point I brought my 13-year-old from the bottom of the hill where the activity bus had actually dropped him, then went to get the 15-year-old from school.
He truly desired Starbucks, and it most likely will not occur later on today, so I took him. It’s one method to get a teen to speak with you … The Starbucks car park is a lot easier to browse if you have 2 individuals– one to enter, one to stick with the vehicle (there are locations you can idle however can’t park …). He got our strawberry acai lemonade refreshers, and after that we drove house. Our baby-sitter and the 2 kids got house from karate quickly afterwards so we threw up supper (tomato soup + grilled cheese mainly), and consumed (5:50 -6:10) and after that I prepared yourself to drive my child to her choir show.
I had actually desired a few of the older young boys to go however … they didn’t wish to, and I didn’t seem like a battle, so I passed myself. She needed to be dropped off 6:30 p.m., however it didn’t begin up until 7 p.m., so I check out a fascinating post in the Princeton Alumni Weekly about the conservative motion at Princeton. Then the kids sang. They were fantastic! The tunes were positive, and everybody was joyful and the program was likewise brief. We were out by 7:45, and house by 8 p.m.
Now I am composing this while the 3-year-old sees some Cookie Beast video on YouTube Children. Everybody requires to be in their spaces by 9, and lights out by 10 and after that whatever begins over once again!
I hope your 2nd day of tracking worked out. Let me understand if you’re observing anything intriguing!
