Hello dear ladies!
Yes, it's been a while.. by the time I get home from work and look after family and pets.. before I know it the day has gone... how do you all manage your time?
Goodness knows I've read every book under the sun about time management, but my nature is somewhat slapdash... I'm surprised I manage any deadlines at all in the studio.

Hi Perdita ... we just ignore family, pets, work and chores ... easy, really!  >:D

Well, the secret, perdita, is to completely abandon the idea of sleep! That will free up plenty of time to sit and chat.

Then, there's always the five pots of coffee ...

Sneaking posts during lunch breaks ...

It's great hearing from you ... I'd been wondering, too, where you'd gone off to!

Yes, I do try and sneak in a bit of Chi at lunchtime when I'm at work but the woman in my office keeps trying to see what I'm typing which is a bit off putting!   I don't do the no sleeping thing though ... would soon resemble the haggiest of hags in hagdom if I did!  >:D

All those time management books are really just designed to make the rest of us feel completely inadequate ... I've never read them ... much too pompous and preachy. The only one who benefits is the author who rakes in tons of money on the sales!

Linda and Threeb have covered it all, really, Perdita. Forget mundane things like work etc, and simply tell yourself that Chi is helping you to maintain a healthy level of active brain cells !
