How many things can you do in 4h?

I don't understand how 4h can whizz by so quickly.

I can on average:

1. Prepare one meal (sometimes a simple second like scrambled eggs)

2. Unload and load the dishwasher

3. Shower

4. Have breakfast

I don't understand where my time goes. Well actually I do understand. Most of it goes ok browsing the net. Addf and the news...

Re: How many things can you do in 4h?

Well in the last 4 hours, i accomplished 4 hours of sleep, despite having already slept over 8 hours just before that.

I've managed to make my first coffee though and it's only 1 in the afternoon.

Re: How many things can you do in 4h?

It depends upon the day and how many distractions I allow into my space at any given moment.

Re: How many things can you do in 4h?

up since 3:30. Washed and dressed and slapping on some mascara.

The next 4 hours might be a little more productive. Maybe.

Re: How many things can you do in 4h?

i've been up for two.

went for a run immediately
washed up some
*child awoke*
changed her and got her dressed
brushed her hair
she's eating breakfast (banana and yoghurt)

SHE is the reason i do more. otherwise i'd be sitting here having done the run and maybe the washing up.

Re: How many things can you do in 4h?

What’s all this productivity metric poppycock?

Don’t just do something, stand there!

There is no do...there is only be.


Cheers,
Ian

I am. A lot. Somehow I feel that I am a lot more though when I'm doing something.

Re: How many things can you do in 4h?

What you do is exactly what I typically do on a sat morning. And I am perfectly satisfied with it.

The only times I do more is when I have some fun activity that starts earlier in the day that I'm planning to do with someone else. Then the need to get done earlier seems to give me enough of a boost to do things faster.

Re: How many things can you do in 4h?

It depends on the day, my mood, my obligations, etc. For example, if I'm in the cleaning/organizing mood like I was yesterday, I can get a lot done in 4 hrs. Other days, my only real accomplishment is keeping myself and the kids alive.

Re: How many things can you do in 4h?

Nothing today since 3 a.m. Coffee tastes like very wrong. ugh-Ola.

I should shower but I did a slap up job instead.

I need to mascaraize but I have no gumption for it.

I need to lace up the jackboots but my hand, my hand...the scar tissue is not abating.

Re: How many things can you do in 4h?

I've been up for about 4 hrs now, with not much to show for it. Got a tiny bit of studying done (like a few pages). Had some coffee. Got my grocery list half finished. Um, that's about it. Where did the rest of my time go?

These aren't Saturday mornings. I get 4h when fuzzling is in nursery and I've got so much to do but every day I just about seem to manage cooking. Previously I'd actually thought 4h 4 times a week would give me even some time to pursue leisure activities.
