What consumes most of your time each day? What exactly consumes you at work? How much of any given day to you spend doing only what you do best?
I sleep seven to ten hours a day. That leaves about fourteen to do things.
I spend an average of three and a half hours each weekday teaching class.
I spend an average of an hour on the road each weekday. I listen to some music and some talk radio, but most of the time I am going over what I did in class, what I want to do for the next class, and how I can do better at teaching.
I read for about three hours a day. I read blogs and novels.
I spend about one hour a day grading papers.
I spend another half an hour cleaning the house and doing laundry.
I spend about ten minutes getting my books ready for whichever school/class I’m going to and making sure I have what I need.
That’s eight and a half hours.
Today what did I do with the other time? The other five and a half hours?
I loaded the dishwasher. I made cookies which took about forty-five minutes. I watched the the One Month to Live video for half an hour. And we did the questions before and after, which probably took half an hour, including the bonus video. I drove my kids to drivers’ ed which was ten minutes. I talked to one of my sons for about fifteen minutes. I picked up the bathroom, about five minutes. I took a shower and got dressed, about twenty minutes. I took a twenty minute walk with R. That’s another two hours and fifty-five minutes.
What did I do with the other three hours?
I ate, went to the bathroom, straightened the kitchen and the dining room. I wrote a blog post. I went to the grocery store. That took about an hour. I made the bed and hang up my coat three times, plus I got it out of the closet three times. I took some books up to the teen room and moved stuff around in there. I came up with a small basket to use for laundry in the laundry room. I helped Elijah clean the kitchen and got the garbage ready to go out.
But I’m not sure what the last hour to hour and half went to.
