Do I know how to multi-task my heart? I know this might sound weird but this is a reality for me. When I dedicate myself to one thing, I sometimes neglect the other important things in my life.
This is my weekday schedule
5:30am - wake up
6:15am - leave for work
7:45am - 4:30pm - work
6:15pm - arrive home from work
6:15pm - 10pm- Try to settle in and spend time with the family which includes:
cook dinner 1- 2 hours ( I have no clue how Rachel Ray does it in 30 minutes)
eat dinner as a family 1.5 hours
dishes and clean kitchen 45minutes
family movie 2hours
dog time 30mins
read bible 1.5hours
If I do the math correctly, from 6:15-10 is 3.75 hours. If I add all the things I want to try to complete in an evening it adds up to 7.25 hours. That means I am in the negative by 3.5 hours.
I am going to be honest.
I don't clean up the kitchen most nights. (That was hard to type) Each day I let my dog out while I am trying to finish the dishes from the night before and cook dinner for the evening, which means I am not really paying the dog any attention. Plus he is an Italian Mastiff he needs way more exercise than what I am providing.
At dinner time, I am so busy eating that I am not really talking or giving Gary and Tyler the attention they deserve. When we start watching a family movie, I am on the computer trying to read some of my Bible chapters for the day. Tyler might say, "Hey did you see that?" And I will have to ask him to rewind it because I was engrossed in King Ahab's ignorance and Elijah's obedience.
I need to learn time management. I really can't go any further than this right now.
Pray for me and I will pray for you even if you don't pray for me.
Tomorrow's reading is 2 Kings 16 - 25
