Schedules suck lets face it. I lump deadlines in with schedules as well here. They all suck. Over the last few days my wife and I have been trying to come up with a schedule for the family to get back on in preparation for school starting in less than one month. Whatever happened to the Lazziez-Faire school of summer?
Over the past few weeks all sense of timing and schedule have gone out of our kids. They end up in bed at midnight, wake up near noon, eat whenever and don’t get all of their chores done. Well now we have decided that this just won’t do any more so a schedule we have devised. It is simple, spells out time for everything and it sucks. I don’t want to be on a schedule but there it is, I have to, they have to.
And if a daily schedule is not bad enough, trying to figure out when to go on vacations amid all of the things that the kids get into and before school starts sucks just as bad. At least we only have a few free days to go fishing, we can’t afford anything else. At least the kids like camping. And the only schedule I have to keep in the mountains has to do with the sun rising and setting and how much gas I have in my boat.
Schedules suck. How do you feel about them? Oh that’s right no one really reads this blog, or if they do, they don’t bother to interact so whatever.
Have a great weekend anyway.
