Both hubby and I have errands in different directions this afternoon. He will end up being somewhat late. So we will eat sandwiches on our own tonight. Then I think I plan to take a nap. I would like to take a nap right now, but that would not work out, gotta go to work. I was up and down a lot last night. This morning I will take the trash out before work. We usually plan ahead and take it out on Saturday or Sunday. How often do you plan ahead?

I wish I could plan more ahead but really does not happen much. I hope you have a decent rest there Heather.

Other people and their circumstances can waylay any plans we make.

Daily plans are made here so that everyone gets to where they should be and does what they are supposed to do.

@GardenGerty It really does. We are not the most organized people, but we do give it a shot.

Its good to plan ahead for somethings and not for others. It all depends I have just taken all the Rubbish all separated up to the Recycle Bins before I get caught in the heavy Rains that are due this Afternoon. Suppose that is planning ahead as well. Have a great day as I can see you are really busy.

@GardenGerty It really is good to plan somethings even the plans get all tangled up and donĀ“t go through how you want them. Heavy Rain here again so arming myself with patience as it means a lot of cleaning.

When I had a lot on my proverbial plate I did plan ahead. I had to do lists and was very organized. Now I just play it by ear. My daughter runs the errands and I don't worry too much about that.

@GardenGerty ......For me it really is because I am so sensitive to stress.

It does make life easier when the little details are taken care of in advance.

I plan ahead all the time and have a list of things I have to do beforehand. Without the list, things do not happen for me around here.

Rarely only because we are retired and don't have to do anythign usually on time. If we are having company or going some where, then I need to plan ahead.

It is good to "free fall" too when possible. Less stressful.

Mostly I'm good at planning out but I missed getting the trash out this week. But it's no big deal.

If I miss a week I can get it all picked up the next time. I just do not like the idea of paying for a week and not using it.

Lol everytime I think of planning meaning I really don't plan unless I felt the urgency to do it. I know it not right but I am trying to make it a habit to plan my while day so time are not waste up. God bless.
