Challenge update Week 2: It continues to be cold in the mornings. I lay in bed wishing I could grab for a device. I don’t want to wake up DH but I also want to wake up DH. Sometimes I cuddle closer and think about stuff and sometimes I give up and do my morning ablutions and then head to the office to check my email. Then I get cold and I head back to bed. Thus far I have not gotten up to do any work other than answering emails. I have, however, been getting into work earlier in the morning after DH is up and out of bed. I’ve been eating breakfast with the kids instead of snoozing and I usually head out when DC1 goes for the bus. This has led to an hour of productive time (and some political calls) once I get to work. Of course, then I run out of steam earlier in the day once I’m at work. Which suggests maybe I was optimizing already and not checking social media in the mornings is just moving things around. Still, I am actually spending less time on social media. I’m just not sure I’m doing anything productive with that time. I mean, I guess there’s a little bit more contemplation in the morning but do I really need to be contemplating how much I wish I could grab the ipad or DH would wake up or how 9 Rules to Break isn’t quite as good in light of the #metoo movement etc. Most of the planning/work thoughts I’d been having on my morning drive. With all the extra time I have been a bit better about grabbing a vit D in the morning, but I also have them in my desk at work to take later in the day when I notice I’m tired because I forgot so maybe that’s why I run out of steam earlier in the day.
