It's Working Mom Wednesday! Here are today's question...
What do you consider necessary to get through the day? (items, routines, coffee, etc.)
What do you do on your commute to work - listen to the radio, enjoy peace and quiet, etc.
I'm not a hard person to please - it really doesn't take much to make my happy. You should have seen my reaction when my new boss told us she's putting a coffee maker in our breakroom... I do have a few things that I consider absolutely necessary to get through one of my crazy days, though.
One thing I had let slide for a while, but is now (again) an absolute necessity for my day is my quiet time. I get up at 5:45 on most days. I grab breakfast and watch the news (or an episode of one of favorite TV shows - I record everything and watch is as I can on our DVR). Then I settle in for my quiet time with my Bible and prayer journal. Some days I have more time, and on those days I do a Kay Arthur Inductive study. On days when I'm more pressed for time, I love the daily devotionals at Proverbs 31 Ministries. Once that's done, I can get ready and get on with my day.
Coffee...I must have coffee! lol I'm seriously addicted. I'm not so much a morning coffee person as I am an afternoon person. As I said, I get up at 5:45, and half the time I'm not home until 8:00 p.m., so by 2 or 3, I need the pick me up of a good cup of coffee.
Other than that my only real necessities are my phone and my Day Planner. I love my new Droid X, and I'm already so dependant on it. But as much as I love technology, I still have to have my pen-and-paper day planner. I love being able to open up my calendar to look at all the details of a month at time...I haven't found anything digitial that take its place. I rely on my Day Planner so much I've started referring to it as my brain, because if it's not in there, it's not getting done.
