Working Mommy Wednesday

Welcome to another week of Working Mommy Wednesday. This week's prompt is:

How do you carve out personal time for yourself?

Since getting back from Asia, I've found myself waking up at 5am with tons of energy. I've cleaned the house, made muffins, showered, paid bills and updated my blog all before the kids are up. It's great! I love this new routine but in the last few days I've found myself slipping back into my old pattern of staying up later, doing the same work when I'm tired, less productive and waking up at 6:30. It makes a big difference. I think I need to switch to those morning hours of "me time". I love being so productive in the mornings!

I think some of the lure of staying up late is the occasional TV show, friends are more interactive on Twitter and Facebook at night and that's fun. But I think I can still have this and cut myself off by 9pm. So that's my goal, bedtime by 9, up by 5am!

Looking forward to reading about how you carve out time for yourself! Linky appears to be working again so feel free to leave your blog link below. Have a great Wednesday!

ps. If anyone would like to connect on Twitter, I'm thinking of making our hashtag #WMWpals. If you would like to join, please leave your Twitter name in the comments.

Bless you for being able to do the 5 a.m. wake up. I am in no way a morning person...of course if I had kids that may change. ;)

I wish I could get up early... Maybe that's the key. :) I like your twitter idea. I hardly use twitter, but I'm planning to use it more. I am emilyclaire000

I like your plan. I've been having to get up early anyways with Little Man's schedule, so I need to start trying to go to bed earlier.

Oh and I like the twitter idea too!
