Time analysis

Dec 25 to December 31

Time totals messed up because I didn’t track as much over the holidays, but here’s a guesstimate:

Sleep 53 hours ~ 7 hours per day
Preparation 23 hours Including disassembling washer and dryer
Work 19 hours Took some sick time
Routines 16 hours
Social 8 hours
Writing 2.5 hours
Travel 2 hours I’ve been using some of this for writing time, too
Break 2 hours
Exercise 1.25 hours
Learning 0.75 hours
Driving practice 0.75 hours
Untracked 39.75 hours

Tweaking my time-tracking…

A terrible cold has put a crimp in my productivity and my holiday celebrations, but W- has been totally awesome at taking care of me. He’s been shaking his finger at me for having insisted on spending Friday working when I should have been in bed. “You’ve been working feverishly,” he said, “and now you’ve come down with a fever.” That explains why I was shivering underneath all those covers. Fortunately, it’s nothing W- hasn’t dealt with before, and aspirin soon sorted that out. (Thank you, mdern medicine.)

Definitely time to break out the ginger tea. (Hello, salabat!)
