Oic, I remember when you were at that restaurant job, that boss had you in a wreck. She was so not nice!

Yea, she sure did! Have me in a wreck, that is!

I feel much more balanced in my life now. A typical day for me is
Wake up at 8:30
wash my hair
Watch Judging Amy and have lunch
maybe an hour of computer time around 3 if it is not my day to deliver dinner to mom and dad
Make dinner
wash dishes
watch a little TV or read
computer in the evening
bed at about 11

Thursdays is my computer day
Saturdays is date day.
Sundays is church and either we go over to mom and dads or they come over here.

I have a very organized desk, filing system, etc. I never had too much difficulty in that area, it was getting a schedule that would work for me.
I try to do one big chore or project a month, like windows, clean a closet etc.

The projects I need to work on in the next few months are:
linen cuboard
big closet

Having made myself, over the past few years, get chores and errands done before computer has made all the difference in balancing my time. That, and I stopped fighting my body clock. Before I worked the overnight schedule I was an early to bed and early to rise and never could get my body back to that sleeping pattern after working overnights.
Now, I get up at 8:30 naturally and I quit trying to get up at 6 a long time ago!! LOL!!

hugs, train
