I hope you are ready to tell me the best ways to manage your time, because I could really use the input. I see some ladies who just seem to manage careers, family, and friends with ease. They never forget things, never seem flustered, and are always put together nicely. Mind you, I can count the number on one hand, but still they do exist. So how do they manage their time so much better than the rest of us?My daughter-in-law has three children, works from the home as a beautician, and has a husband who is away a large part of the time. She juggles all that with ease. She always looks immaculate, the house is always clean, and she never seems to get her feathers ruffled.I think the part where she gets up early, and works till late, might have something to do with her success. I’m not willing to do either of those things. Lol! So other than getting up early and going to bed late, what else helps with time management?I have one friend who must have the energizer bunny batteries installed in her. I can’t even begin to tell you her schedule, but I will give you some highlights. She has a young child, around 8 or 9, and she works for her husband in his dental office. She preps all their food for the week on Sundays. Are you with me so far? She teaches Zumba at least three nights a week, and she is training to be in the Mrs. Virginia pageant in April. She sells Rodan and Fields, and has recently taken on the role as track coach. And because that is not enough, she runs in 1/2 marathons for fun.She told me in order to make all that work, she has to be very organized and everything is scheduled. Can you train to be more organized? How do you stay on a schedule? I can’t even find time to make out a schedule, much less follow one. Let’s take today for instance. I go to work like normal, but I had to leave a little early to take the dogs to the vet. The vet is only there till 4:30, so I loaded both the pups up and took them to the vet. When I got home I started working on the blog, what I was going to write, etc. Then my son calls and when I answer the phone, my grandbaby is screaming. I had just taken the dogs outside and she saw me from the window. “I want to come to Nee Nee’s house.” Of course I said bring her over.We were playing so Joe went for a walk, and when he came back he had a couple we know with him. We sat outside for awhile and Emersyn played while we talked. When they left, I fed her and got Joe’s food ready. It is now 9:20 and I am just now getting to the blog. Cropping and fixing the photos, writing the content, and finding the links. Obviously, I need help. Can you gurls give me any suggestions?
Okay, to today’s outfit. I love this outfit, it has a romantic vibe. The white Karen Kane lace tank is one that I have had for a couple years, and it is so feminine. Lace is a really big trend right now, and most of us can wear lace. You may not like a big lace collar or cuffs, but a ruffle along the shirt hem is easy to wear. The black one is like mine, and the others are similar.
The crepe vertical stripe pants and the cardigan both came from Cato’s. The cardigan was on clearance from last fall, but I think it matches the pants well. Here are a couple other pants that are similar.
I couldn’t find striped palazzo pants in plus size, but I liked these just as good.
The shoes I have on are the same ones I wore here, so the links are there.I haven’t been linking to my jewelry lately, so I thought I would so a few pieces today. My necklace is from Stella & Dot and is called a Zuni layering necklace. I have on a Michael Kors boyfriend watch that was a gift. My very large bangle is a vintage fashion show find from years ago. It is wooden pieces all glued together.
My purse is a retired Stella & Dot that you might find on ebay. But here is a similar one by Cole Haan. I hope you liked my romantic, flowy outfit. And I am serious about wanting time management tips. Since I have started the blog, it usually takes me at least two hours a night to finish a post.
