What Can Ya Do?


I was scrambling around the house this morning trying to find where HM hid my keys. I lie. They were in my purse...but at the bottom. I had to take stuff out in order to find the keys. I mean seriously right? I can still blame HM, he is the one that gave me the stupid awesome purse for Christmas. It has all of these pockets..... Arrgggh. Life is rough!

Anyways, so there I was- wild to find my keys (which is an almost daily hunt) and I realized that my life would be a lot easier if I could just get my self together. This was an epiphany I had to have on my own. It did no good when HM suggested that I "just find a place to put the keys so that you would always know where they are". ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

But his "duh" statement got me thinking. There are many small things that would save me a lot of frustration later. Here are a few things that would help me avoid a stressful breakdown.

1. Pack my gym bag the night before. This sort of echos the chaos of the hidden keys. I spend as much time getting my crap together in the morning as I do getting myself ready for work. If I did pack my bag the night before, I wouldn't end up at the gym with no socks and one glove.

Maybe the other glove is somewhere in that dang purse!
2. Keep my closet room clean. Nothing adds to my frustration in the morning more than when I am searching for the lost items WHILE tripping and falling all over the junk on the floor of my dressing room.

This old picture reminded me what the carpet looks like!
3. Record all audio in one sitting. A large part of my job entails recording voice overs for training videos. I often come home with a script, record half of it and then "take a break"......only to end up not finishing until another day. Every time I record I have to set up all the equipment. If I did all the recording in one sitting, that wold only require one set up....not two.

Meet my friend, the snowball
4. Leave the office at least once during the day. Some days are hectic- true. Even running out to get coffee would meet this objective. I bring my lunch most days and if I have meetings too close together, I don't even go to the gym. Days are just plain better when I get a break. I feel like it resets my day and then the afternoon is more manageable.  HM and Dog surprised me at lunch today and we spent some time playing ball at the park nearby. After that, the day was so much easier.

Buckley starts running before HM even throws the ball. Dumb dog.
5. Pre-schedule all my appointments. I experience a lot of stress about how I REALLY SHOULD schedule that over due dentist appointment or a much needed hair appointment. Most of these things are a simple call away and yet I don't get around to scheduling them. Every time I am reminded that I need to get in for my annual check-up or eye lash refill, a wave of stress comes over me. Get it together Emily, geez. I mean, is it shocking that I need my roots touched up 6 weeks after my last touch-up? No.

*Any guess on this photo?
* The above photo is a picture of my paraffin wax wrapped hands as I was waiting for the dentist. I go to the Dental Spa. It is exactly what it sounds like. It is a Dentist that incorporates spa like aesthetics. Sorry the photo is fuzzy. It was the best I could do considering the chair was a vibrating chair and I took the photo with my tongue. Gross yes, but my hands were moisturizing!

The point is, all the above changes are relatively small considering how much easier the changes would make my life. I am going to really try hard going forward. As long as HM does not hide my keys again I should be fine.....

What about you Sweets? Can you think of anything that would simplify your life?


  1. I used to make fun of Paul for packing his gym bag the night before and for laying out his work clothes the night before. Until I tried it for myself. Makes all the difference. I recently started putting my gym bag in my car the night before, too, b/c I found I was often forgetting to even bring said pre-packed gym bag with me. Now I don't even have to think about in the morning - it's all ready packed and sitting in my trunk!
