Keeping up

As my baby boy starts to become more and more mobile and independent, I realize that its harder to keep up with things. You may ask "What things?". And I will respond heartily: "EVERYTHING!!!" My housework, laundry, etc. Yardwork, phone calls, emails. Exercise, eating healthy, and my blog. Yup-especially forget about keeping up with the Kardashians, or even just the three television shows I like to watch that are longer than 30 minutes.

Yet, I realize that these things are all important to me, and I need to keep up with them. How can I make sure I am able to accomplish what I need to during the day, yet provide a loving and safe environment that fosters the growth and creativity of my wonderful child?

If you know the answer, please tell me! And the answer can't include cloning myself, or hiring people to do the work for me!

  1. have to prioritize! You have to decide which things you want to do for yourself and then really try to make time to do them. I realize this especially since going back to work. Talk about not having time, and when I come home JP just wants to be with me. I feel the same way, but it makes it tough to do anything. Lists and priorities, that's what I am working on now. I love the feeling of crossing something off of my list. I realize that sometimes the laundry is just not going to get done and there may be a night that we have scrambled eggs for dinner because it is quick. Just keep it balanced! :)
