One of my goals from yesterday was to spend time following my schedule each day until it becomes second nature. I have a schedule, or "Daily Routine" that I am trying to follow. I do very well until about 2:00 pm, then its all over(grin). So I revamped it a little so I could keep my attention span more focused! Here it is as it stands today!
