Sunday ramblings Part 2

January 29th, 2007 at 12:58 am

Sorry about the last post, I am seriously computer challenged. Which maked me wonder why I am searching for a job in the clerical field.

A Dr's office had called me on Thursday to set up an interview. Because of all the craziness at work I could not risk checking my cell phone until I had clocked out, so I missed being able to call them back that day. I tried calling them Friday morning and again Friday afternoon, but the lady never called me back. Oh well, maybe I will hear from them on Monday.

Saturday I spent abut $22.00 at Wal-mart for groceries. My pantry and freezer are full of food, but it all has to be cooked in some way. I do not get home until after 5:45 and the kids are starving at that point. They are in bed by 7:45. So there is two hours to get supper ready, eat, get baths done and spend some quality time with my DS and DD.

I really need to make a weekly menu and I am sure that would help since I could have things ready the night before. Do any of you know if it is safe to leave a crock pot on for 11-12 hours. Most recipes I look at say 4-6 or 6-8 hours.

Another question, After you acquire the knowledge you need to get ahead of anything, how do you find the motivation to do it. Procrastination and laziness are big problems in my life. I really need to find something to give me a kick in the pants.

    if you work full time and you have 2 young children, i don't think it's procastination or laziness that keeps you from doing what you want. It might have to do with lack of time and simply runnign out of energy.

    Try to set small daily goals for yourself that will get you in the direction of where you want to go. Write down your long-term goals on paper, then post it on the refrigerator or somewhere where you'll see it often and keep it uppermost in my mind.

    They have crockpots now that you can program the time you want it to cook for and then it will switch over to warm when it was done cooking. They aren't really more than a few dollars over the price of a regular one and I think they are well worth it for this feature. The kind I have is made by Rival and I got it a WalMart.
