Mind-altering Drugs

Was I on some mind-altering drug when I wrote that post about my preferred schedule? What craziness!! We are "supposed" to work 10% overtime (4 hours/week), but I had about 25% overtime planned into that schedule. I think it was because we needed the money at the time. Now BigDaddy has his job. He still isn't raking in the big bucks, but he's at least making enough to make it so that I don't have to worry about overtime.

Here's my real schedule:
5:30 Alarm goes off
6:00 Get up and get ready, make lunch, eat breakfast. Don't read scriptures. Don't do any housework
7:00-7:15 Bobbie-Sue* picks me up for work
7:45 Get to work late
6:30 Bobbie-Sue picks me up
7:10 Arrive at Bobbie-Sue & Emmy-Lou's house to get the kids. Emmy-Lou takes us home.
7:30 Get home. Sit on the couch and stare into space while nursing LittleMan.
8:30 Listen to the screaming children. Realize that we need food. Find something or just nurse LittleMan more and let the rest of us go hungry.
9:30 Go to bed

Wow! I have really been the woman, wife, and mother I wish to be, haven't I!!! (That was massively sarcastic, by the way).

*Bobbie-Sue and Emmy-Lou are some friends of ours (a mom and daughter) that help us out with babysitting our kids and taking me to work. Bobbie-Sue and Emmy-Lou are not their real names, of course. Also, I am not implying they are hicks, because they are the furthest thing from hicks. Maybe I should come up with some better pseudonyms. I just thought these were good because it's more obvious that they are fake names.

Why is is that often the planned and preferred schedule which looks realistic on paper, never works out in real-life?

Thanks for sharing that...it makes me feel a little more human when my schedules don't work out perfectly as planned either!
