How does my schedule change in the summer? Oh my goodness I am so much more forgetful in the summer than the rest of the year. All three of my children are home in the summer and often my nephew is here as well. I tend to work at night after my kids go to sleep in the summer months so I can spend more time with them. You would think that with not having to stick to a school schedule that things would be more relaxed but this is not the case here.
There are more activities that come up in the warmer months so things get tossed aside to go to something. I try not to set up a schedule during this time of year. We have the watermelon festival, the carnival, two parades, two block parties, VBS, and birthdays over the next few months. Add in sleepovers and other fun summer activities and it tends to be a busy time of year.
The biggest change in schedule for me right now is work. Like I said I will shove off work until my kids go to sleep. So instead of working during the day I will be working until 2 or 3 in the morning. I don’t mind the lack of sleep for a few months since it means more time to do things that the kids will enjoy. I try to get writing in on days when it is too hot to go out or when it is storming.
