When I was in high school my schedule was pretty much set for me. In college, same thing. Once I got married and we moved to Oklahoma I didn't have a schedule set for myself. I wasn't working as we were only supposed to be there temporarily (6 months) before moving to Germany. That later changed to us getting stationed in Oklahoma. However I was expecting Courtney and it made no sense to go back to work only to quit a few months later.
About 2 months after we moved I realized I wasn't very productive with my time, I was watching an insane amount of TV, and I wasn't feeling good about myself. Since we were originally there temporarily we were in temporary lodging and had a maid that came daily to clean. I literally didn't have a thing to do!
One day I woke up, and realized that I need to get control of my time and get on a routine/schedule. I promptly got ready for the day (at around 11:30am) and took myself to Walmart (no Target in this town) to pick up a planner. Because that is what makes the most sense when you don't have a routine. Getting a planner and all the pens was bound to get me together, right?
