Are you more of a "follow a strict scheldule" type of person, or a "fly by the seat of your pants" kind of person?

I'm more of a "fly by the seat of my pants" kinda gal. But I do have a certain time for naps, all meals and bed-time. But as far as having every moment of the day planned out...not for me! I would go crazy! lol.

  • I tried working with schedules and it didn't work for me. It caused more stress than it was worth. Instead of schedules, I set goals. I'd LIKE to have ___ done sometime today. As long as it gets done, it doesn't make a difference to me what time it is!

    I definately fly by the seat of my pants :)

  • I also have a set bedtime and wakeup time for my kids but that's about it! As much as I would like to follow a schedule I can never seem to do it.

  • I m definately the fly by the seat of my pants kind of person. I don't have anything against a schedule, i just personally would hate the idea of me having to do it. Too boring for me.

  • Last minute last second with my man.I think you are not as nervous that way when going to a special event.

  • The more kids I've had, the more scheduled we've gotten. It gets impossible to get anything done or have any kind of sanity in your life if you don't have more order and routine when you have more than 2 kids.

  • I like schedules. I'd say I am a flexible schedule person. I've found if I follow an approximate schedule that most things that I want to do get done. Otherwise I either have to skip something or rush through it. This way I can get to bed at about the time that I want to and feel refreshed when I wake up in the morning.
