Foiled again…

I have been up since well before dawn...

I did my exercises this morning with the rising sun…GOOD MORNING that feels great! It makes me happy…and well oxygenated.

So then, I applied for 5 jobs, read my Scriptures, made coffee, drank two “wheelbarrows” full of coffee and had breakfast all before 9…a record in our house.

My PLAN was to finish my job applications, shower, go get the mail and then have lunch…

THEN I was going to do laundry and scrapbook away my afternoon…

Alas, today was the day that the IL’s are having the carpets cleaned….ugh…

So…into the shower I go, get dressed in a mad rush, and then get my junk together to leave the house…

Scott cannot work while they are doing the carpets because the floors in the office are the first to be cleaned and then will be wet for 4 hours afterward…so, I asked him to come with me to the coffee shop so I could finish my marathon job hunting and do some blogging…

This, of course, requires much discussion with his boss, my father in law, about should he go or should he stay, and if he goes, should he take the business lap top with him or will FIL need it at the house…and if he doesn’t take the laptop, what is he going to do when he gets to the coffee shop…

Decisions are made:

We will go to Barnes and get him a new book…

And then have lunch…

And THEN go to the coffee shop so I can get on the Internet and get to the rest of my resume e-mailing for the day…

Sigh…

Two hours after I planned to get to the coffee shop, here we are…all jobs applied for and I’m blogging…

And he has a book and is happily reading with his I-pod set to “annihilate.”

And I’m struck by the fact that other than the things I accomplished before 9, the entire plan of my day was FOILED! YIKES!

No scrapping will be done today…and I doubt I’ll get my laundry done today…so I’ll have to do it tomorrow. Not such a big deal, because my schedule isn’t exactly booked…still I had a goal to complete at least one scrap project per day and I am already behind, this being the 2nd day of the week and I’ve completed…ummmm…lets see…ZERO projects!

Oh, dear…

So, I guess I’ll get up before dawn tomorrow and try this plan all over again…first the exercise and sun rise, then the coffee and scriptures, then a shower and then job applications until I’ve exhausted the new stuff out there…and then, scrapbooking and laundry…

mmmmmm…

I’m having de ja vu.

But I can't wait!!!

Peace, everyone!

Sounds a lot like my plans of late. The train just seems to keep flying off the track!
