Weekly Project: Survive The Week

Ivy says:

This week I only have one goal, and that’s to get through this week. Every once in awhile, we all have weeks like this. Overscheduled, too much to do, not enough time for it all. I keep my schedule on my MacBook’s iCal program, and I’ve been watching this week loom for the past few weeks. I opened my iCal this morning and here it was, the week I’ve been dreading. Schedule: full.

Life coaches and organizational experts everywhere tell you not to let yourself get overscheduled, but I think it’s one of life’s inevibilities. The key, I think, is to make sure it doesn’t happen constantly, and when it does, arrange for as much help as possible. Also, turn down things that are non-essential.

One of the things that is greatly helping out this week is being able to trade carpooling responsibilities with another parent for my son’s band camp. The other mom has to be at work in the morning, so I take the morning drive, and she’s home in time to pick them up for the evening drive. It saves time and gas money- everybody’s happy.

So, when you’re facing a week like this, ask yourself if you can get help. Make sure everything is scheduled with plenty of time to drive the places you need to drive, and make sure you get enough sleep. You’ll be able to jam everything in there, somehow.

Or, that’s what I keep telling myself. Wish me luck.
