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.

β€œJust a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.


  1. That is a crazy schedule. A super crazy one. Working nights like this had got to be a killer in so many ways :/

  2. Man, crazy schedules are the worst! That’s awesome that you do yoga though to help with the stress πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ Glad to have found your blog! I am enjoying it!

    1. Thank you sooo much!! Glad you could make it over to my blog for a visit!! πŸ™‚ I do enjoy yoga quite a bit. Very relaxing, which is rare in my life πŸ˜‰
