Morning Schedule Update
My morning schedule is not going the way that I'd hoped. I just can't find the strength to wake up early. That is the main thing that I've wanted to accomplish with my morning routine, and I just haven't done it.
I know that my day would go a lot smoother if I would just wake up earlier than the kids. But, it's sooooo hard!!! My 4 month old likes to stay up late, and she usually goes down for the night around 11-11:30 p.m. I've tried to keep her awake more throughout the day, but she goes to sleep around 7pm and sleeps until around 9. Then she stays up until 11:30ish or so. And, it drives me crazy!!! I'm working on getting her to sleep earlier, like at least around 10 p.m. each night.
Then, on top of that, I go to bed late trying to finish up things that I need to do. Like, last night, I went to bed at 3 a.m. trying to finish some freelance work that I needed to get done. If I would just wake up early, I could tackle most of my work during that time, and feel so accomplished.
But, that rarely happens. I'm not going to give up, though. I will keep trying to keep princess up in the evening, so she can go to sleep earlier, and I will try to go to sleep at least by 11p.m. My goal is to start each day around 6 or 6:30. 6 would be ideal. Let's hope that I can do it!!!
