My Schedule is Ridiculous: NaBloPoMo

Tell us about your morning routine. What is one thing you want to change?


Let me preface by saying my morning routine is a bunch of crap. This is what my mornings are like. My mornings run into afternoons, which run into nights.

  • I get home from work shortly after midnight.
  • Sometimes I sleep for four hours. If I’m lucky, I get to sleep for six glorious hours.
  • Then I get the kid up at 6:30 a.m.
  • After she gets on the bus at 7 a.m., I drag myself back home and try to sleep for two more hours.
  • Most days I get up between 10:30-11 a.m. On the more sluggish days, I sleep until noon.
  • I feel guilty about sleeping until the late morning. When I added up the hours, it came out to be about seven hours.
  • I stumble down the stairs and keep moving until I find the coffee.
  • Drink said coffee with a side of cereal or a bagel.
  • I check out the blog. Sometimes I send cheesy love songs to my boyfriend from YouTube.
  • Around noon, I eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
  • Wait for the coffee to kick in and write until 1-2. There is a lot of brainstorming going on around this time.
  • Sometimes, I get to do interviews with cool people – musicians, comic book artists, etc.
  • Yoga
  • Get ready for work. Try to hide the bags under my eyes to no avail. Use more lipstick than necessary but whatever.
  • Pick up the kid from the bus
  • Take her to the sitter if boyfriend works late.
  • I get to work at 4.
  • I’m the mayor of whoville until midnight.
  • Then I drive home and start this cycle of ridiculousness all over again.

I would like to change my work schedule because it is cramping my style. When the schedule, changes all will be right with the world. When I say “the world,” I mean my world. I’m ready to get off of this crazy train.


  1. Man, crazy schedules are the worst! That’s awesome that you do yoga though to help with the stress ๐Ÿ™‚ When I was dealing with a ridiculous schedule it took a really loooong time but eventually I noticed that time in meditation help clear my brain and calm my frazzled nerves throughout the rest of the day. I am now happily addicted to meditation ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad to have found your blog! I am enjoying it!
