Okay, enough whining

So apparently I’ve decided that this is a livejournal. I’ve been bitching and moaning and moping and posting “woe is me” so much that I’m sure all of you are about to hurl all over your monitors, if you haven’t done so already.

Sorry about that.

I have this tendency to want to wait for things to happen before doing other things. My rationale is that I don’t want to waste the time and energy working on a schedule if I just have to revise it later.

I’m coming to realize that that shit ain’t gonna fly.

Rather than waiting for my life to suddenly become perfect before I create routines for myself, I’m just going to go ahead and create some fucking routines.

Since I don’t feel like doing a workout at 5 am anymore, I’ll just do it after work for now. If and when I get a new job, I may go back to doing it beforehand.

Since I am here all freaking day, I have no excuse not to have an evening routine that includes making dinner, cleaning up dinner, running the dishwasher, and laying out the next day’s clothes. I’ve actually been fairly good about keeping the kitchen tidy and laying out my clothes, but the dinner part needs some serious work. I need to go back to the days when I knew what was for dinner when I got up in the morning.

Establishing routines will free me of guilt during my lounge-around times, and hopefully unclutter my mind so I can think about other things.

I’ll start small. Workout routine, dinner/before bed routine. Eventually I may add dusting, since that’s something I hardly ever do, and it sorely needs to be done. But I don’t want to overwhelm myself, like I always do. Babysteps ;P

One thing is definite. I need to go to the store. We are almost out of toilet paper!
