Ever do things in a different order so they'll work out better?

Normally, I shower, eat, and then get things ready to go in the car. By that time, I forget something. The other day, I had my banking stuff ready, my water jugs for a (hopefully) good artisian well, and cans/bottles to recycle. I took those all to the car and then showered and ate. For the first time in a long time, I didn't forget anything. I think I'll reverse my order more often. It's just hard to roll out of bed and get motivated that early in the AM.

I have tried that. I have learned over the years that if I associate certain things with certain things I want to be sure and remember I do better. If I don't I always forget something. Usually it something important and sets my day it seems. Sometimes you have to play games with yourself to get it all done.

True, like I'll watch FIT TV and then I'll do housework during the commercials. I seem to have the energy and the will that way. Otherwise, I start to do housework and I get very discusted and quit. Thanks and take care.

I have days where I stay up most of the night, get up in the late afternoon and may just want to turn over and go back to sleep. I do very little housework. Lazy slug that I am. Depression is a very complex issue.

I hope you find something that works for you. Exercise, housework, and exercise works for me.

It is really hard to get moving, especially in the early morning in the winter.I am gloating over having a few days off when I do not have to get up and get moving first thing in the morning.

That would only be a good thing for me if I could find a money source where I could stay home or a job where I could be paid for my vacations. I have neither right now.

Well, it is not a vacation, it was foot surgery, and the inactivity is making me crazy.

sorry, I guess I was just hoping it was vacation. I don't get paid for sick, injury, or operations either.

isn't that the truth - I find that with putting all the winter gear on, scarf, coat gloves, getting my bags, I am forgetting my PHONE!!!

I always get up early morning. most of the time, I have to brush my teeth first before I shower... but sometimes I shower then brush teeth and then dress up to work... lolz... it is just something I want to do each day. I can't take shower and brush teeth later :)
