Schedule Changes & Productive Days

It's the Monday after Christmas, and I hope you've recovered from a weekend of holiday festivities.  For me, today is the start of week #2 of CT's two-week vacation, and I'm still trying to adjust to our new schedule with him being home.

When CT works, he's up at 4 a.m. each day and out the door by 4:45 a.m.  And because I get up with him too and see him out the door, I get my days started early.  I like getting my days started early and getting the most out of each day - "Productive Days" as I call them.  Yes, I love having productive days.  The downside is that since we are both up at the crack of dawn each day, we crash like babies by 9 p.m.   

I like to tease CT and tell him he cramps my style when he is off from work.  Some days, he does.  Since I've been unemployed, I've developed my own schedule each day (ok, I'm a creature of habit) -- job searching, workout, certain days of cleaning, laundry, errands, babysitting for Katie and Ella, etc., etc, etc.  It seems that when he is home, then my schedule and my good intentions just go out the window.  For example, we've been sleeping in until -- wait for it -- 6 A.M.!!!!  The shame of it!  Heck, when CT works, I am usually at the healthclub working out at 6 a.m.!  Not today, though.

So, we are leisurely enjoying our cup of coffee this morning, and CT has the TV remote control glued to his hand flipping channels.  I'm relaxing on my comfy couch with my laptop, thinking that we really should get our day started.  I've got a list of things that we need to do today, and if we get started now, then we will be sure to have a productive day.  But then again, there are plenty of days to be productive next week.  After all, CT will be back at work, and I'll be back on my regular schedule.  So, until then, I think I'll just let CT cramp my style a little longer.  


  1. Wahooo to the unproductive days! (That's my new motto!) So glad you are sleeping in these days ... heck, you might even make it to the 10 o'clock news one night! ;) Whatever you do (or don't do) today ... we're glad our CT is there to do it (or not do it) with ya!

  2. I hear ya on those "cramp my style" moments!! Although, today, I slept til...wait for it...6:07 a.m. All this heavy duty partying, eh???
    I'm with Leanne...let him cramp your style a bit. And tell yourself that each day you'll find something that you two will laugh til your sides ache. Now THAT is a productive day!!!!

  3. Oh yes, I totally get it. I bet I am cramping the egyptian's style this week with me being home. LOL

    Enjoy the time!

  4. Couldn't have said it better as I sit with my laptop doing nothing but reading blogs!!

    Enjoy your day!!
