Time Management

I used to be the best at being organized and time management but since I have stopped worked it seems like I am not good at either one. I have not learned how to organize my day since I am at home all day. When I worked time was pretty much managed for me. I went to work at the same time, came home, got dinner done, homework, bath, spend time with Brookster and bed. Now though, time seems to get away from me. I know it is something that I have to get used to, but it frustrating when I used to be so good at it.

Tonight it was Brownies. I got Brookster's bath early so when we got home we did not have to do that. I was reading some e-mails and when I looked up at the clock I had 10 minutes to get her to Brownies and she was doing the special flag ceremony tonight. I called the leader to explain that we were running a little late but we were coming. She was super nice and said it was fine. Brookster however was not has nice and understanding. According to her I have ruined her life and she is going to be sooooooooooooo in trouble for being late. Now keep in mind I have already talked to the leader and worked it out with her. I however understand Brookster because I used to never be late to anything.

I have bought a daily calender and I am going to try to schedule things that need to be done. A friend of mine suggested that. When I worked I lived by the calender so maybe that is what is missing.

Tomorrow is the last day of school, so Brookster and I both will have to get on a summer schedule. I will keep you posted on how I am coming with this time management thing. Thanks for letting me vent a little bit it has made me feel better. Do you all have any advice on how to juggle it all?
