Scheduling My Life

My Type-A personality thrives on lists and schedules so I am shocked that I still have not sat down and hammered out a weekly schedule for my life. I am behind on so many things and I think the reason is because I haven't explicitly scheduled out time to take care of them. This becomes especially hard when you have an infant in the house whose schedule is still somewhat unpredictable. So, that is my goal for this week. At some point - I haven't yet scheduled time for me to schedule my time - I am going to sit down with my husband and figure out our weekly schedule. Here are a few very important things I need to carve out time for:

Scrapbooking - If I do not set aside specific time for this, I won't get to do it. Trust me, this is important. Scrapbooking is like my therapy and without it I would go even more nuts than I already am. I really need at least two hours every week to do this.

Couple Time - Evan and I need to set aside some time each week to hang out with one another in "adult time." This includes a date night, but also needs to have some casual at home time.

Cleaning and Housework - I hate to admit this is important, but it is. My house is really showing that I haven't made time to do this so I need to make sure it gets back on my schedule.

Sure, it doesn't seem like much, but it's amazing how much I rely on a schedule to function. I'm a freak that way. Do you have anything you need to schedule to make sure you do it?
