This means I need a new routine. (This is where this post gets really boring as I map out my plans.) Right now I have very few options. Basically, because mrp leaves for work at 6:00, unless I snag a sitter I'm stuck on the mill either in the morning or during nap time. Ideally I'd like to knock the run out early. I'd like to get up at 5:00 and sip some coffee as I get an hourish of work done and then hit the mill for an hour before peanut wakes up. This shouldn't be a problem except I have virtually no entertainment for my mill runs. It's a long story, but it's going to be a huge pain in the a$$ to update my ipod, but I must. I also need to get a t.v. down there. That will help tremendously. I think if I can do these two things I will be fine. Oh, and I need to start getting to bed early. I need to make bedtime absolutely no later than 10, but as close to 9:00 as possible since I'll be waking up several times each night to feed #2. I can do it! I can do it!
I know I'm not alone in attempting this winter challenge and that will help too. Knowing my friends are fighting the urge to snooze will certainly help me resist the temptation. And knowing that I'm getting it done so I can devote the rest of the day to my two cuties will be the biggest bonus of all.
