Diary of a Blogaholic - Part III

I don't think I have been doing very well so far. There is so much that I want to do. Other priorities. On top of that list is sleep and exercise. Those are important to me to prevent my seizure triggers. Those take up a lot of time. Help!

Second on the list is the kids. They are second not because they are less important but because if I don't take care of myself first, I would not be able to look after them. I need to give them lessons, spend time with them, as well as the routine stuff of feeding and bathing etc. My health situation has prevented me from sending them to preschool so I need to teach them myself. Teaching them takes so much commitment and time and discipline. Routine stuff still gets done but the lessons keeps on getting pushed back day after day. Thats one of the disadvantages of home schooling. Procrastination and lack of discipline, on my part that is. Help!

Third on my list is myself. Not the sleep and exercise part but the me-time part. Doing the things I love, like practising my piano, blogging, doing my cross stitch. Out of all these I constantly find that blogging comes up tops, piano second and my cross stitch remains in my cupboard untouched for several months now. It was supposed to be for my new house but I'm living in the house for several months now and it remains uncompleted. Help!

Fourth on the list is poor hubby of course. He gets the crumbs of my time. Is it any wonder that last night I dreamed that he was looking elsewhere instead of me. Help!

Ok, now that I'm clear about my priorities (writing down always helps), its time to get into action. There is a clear imbalance in my time at the moment. I am getting too much me-time. I spend too much unproductive time online and some time practising my piano which isn't so bad.

What do I need to carry out my plan? A strong dose of self discipline, thats what. Help!

Part I and II of my blogging diary is here and here.

  1. eh MG, I thought a blog is an interactive online journal. You need a private journal for your online one? heheh...

    on a serious note, home schooling isn't easy. Like you said you need alot of discipline to discipline your kids. I am impressed that you have embarked on this. Most would just send their kids to pre-school and let the teachers take care of them.

    I am sure you will be fine. Keep it up.

  2. I'm becoming like you. Spending too much time online. Need to reset my priorities.

    Homeschooling is tough, you need disciplining yourself first. Sometimes you get lazy and tend to just bring the kids out. I went through that and had to send my son to a school. hehe....

  3. Shireen,
    Haha. Now I have a journal within a journal.

    You too? Its so much easier to bring them out or take out the remote control. And before I know another day has passed and still no lessons. :P
