Time management

I totally suck at managing my time. I have three or four projects going, and rather than spend time working on any of them, I futz around on message boards, play video games, post to my blog (*grin*) and generally waste time.

Part of this, no doubt, has to do with being tired much of the time. I work until 9pm or so, get home closer to 9:30, and then only have a couple of hours before I go to bed… or at least, that would be the plan.

I don’t tend to get to sleep until 1:30 or 2:00, and then Ty tends to wake up at the crack of dawn (6:30 or 7:00), and I need to feed her and take her downstairs. She’ll play in her playpen, and I can generally get another couple hours of sleep, but I’m not getting a full, uninterrupted night.

Don’t get me wrong — it’s a price I’m willing to pay, because Ty is such an adorable little munchkin (getting bigger every day). Still, there are times that I feel like I’m not accomplishing anything… aside from bringing in the money necessary to keep us all clothed, housed and fed (which is worthwhile, but not terribly fulfilling, creatively speaking).

Maybe once the new job starts in a couple of weeks, and I’m on more of a daytime schedule, I’ll be able to manage my time a little better, and actually get stuff done…

Yeah, right.
