Revamping the Schedule

After being inspired here and here by Anna at Pleasant View Schoolhouse, I decided to revamp my scheduleAnd though I quickly realize that some reading this will be overwhelmed by such detail, I'm actually quite the opposite.  Getting all the nitty-gritty down in black and white gets it out of my head and in a place where I can see it.  The older I get, the more easily overwhelmed I become.  I've found that it's a help to me to take things out of the swimming pool of my mind to where I can deal with the reality of them.  Each evening, I sit down and type up the next day's schedule.  I only make schedules for Monday through Saturday - each day of the week looks a little different than the others.  If this sort of thing makes you crazy, skip this post!  But if reading other's schedules makes your heart beat a little faster in anticipation, maybe you'll find something that would be of use to you.
