On what was supposed to be my first day of the Power Week, I only managed to get half an hour of practice. Today’s schedule was a comedy of errors. My alarm didn’t go off (I tried to set some fancy repeating-setting on my phone alarm), I ended up needing to spend five hours taking care of my car (needed a tune up, and the only reliable shop is a 40 minute drive), the crock pot that I had filled with tonight’s dinner for a couple of friends never turned on…because it wasn’t plugged in! I snuck in 30 minutes of practice before taking a short break to chop potatos and do other dinner-prep things. Like the auto-errand, I underestimated the prep-time needed for dinner, too, and ended up preparing everything right up until 6 when people arrived. The rest of my night was accounted for with dinner and a gathering that I had set up days in advanced (there was no way to cancel without also being a giant jerk.) And there went Monday! The moral of the story is: don’t just put stuff on the calendar, put them on the calendar WITH a reasonable estimate of the time needed. Not an extremely optimistic estimate of the time I want to spend doing it. :) Here’s to tomorrow!
