This is the look my daughters give me every time they see me reach for my laptop… I can’t resist their sad puppy dog eyes, so I push the computer away, again and again.
I’ve had such a hard time getting back into blogging since the holidays. There just isn’t enough time in the day for everything I want to accomplish! I used to stay up into the wee hours just to stay on top of my blog and email, but one of my resolutions for the new year was to get more sleep, and I’ve been doing just that. That means I’ve lost 3-4 hours a day of work time. Do the math… and that’s 21-28 hours a week. A part-time job, basically, that I now have to fit in to the rest of my day.
I used to average 5 hours of sleep a night, and now I get at least 8, usually more.
My problem now is I haven’t found a way to fit blogging into my day. Between getting the girls dressed, playing/reading with them, cooking three meals a day, cleaning up after said meals, exercising, doing a load (or two) of laundry, tackling other household chores, the girls’ nightly bedtime routine, and spending time with my husband (a few nights a week), there is little time left to do anything else. Plus, I’m trying to be more active in my local community. So, how can I have it all?? I need a plan…
