One day I’ll learn to schedule my blog post. And maybe on that same day I’ll learn how to utilize a calendar, and schedule all sorts of things… like writing or more correctly, editing.
I have a balance issue. When I’m out in the garden (minus the times when the snakes wanna join in) I want to garden all dang day and I do not want to stop for anything. When I’m cooking or baking, I want to feed an army and make everything I can think of. When I’m writing I want to be locked in a cave and not disturbed for any reason.
None of this works out to well when you have two very young children, a husband, a home full of animals, laundry to do and a house to clean. It’s a luxury to have a full dedicated hour to anything, and some days that includes sleep. Not that I’m complaining… too much. I wouldn’t trade in any of it for anything… except for the laundry and the cleaning, I’ll trade that in a second flat.
If only I could find the balance, the motivation to flip from object to object with dedication, with timing… to tackle everything, everyday without burn out, and without threatening those around me with katsup.
And apparently this all comes down to discipline, to making the nasty to-do list and making it happen. “Better time management” as my husband reminds me all too often. But then I whine, “I will, I will, it will happen the minute I get this together and that together, and for any of that I need this and that, and a lot more coffee….”
Maybe it’s a mother thing, or maybe it’s a Leo thing, or maybe it’s just my thing that I must always be running around with a full plate. All I know is that I have about fifty things I’d really like to get done asap, but I’d much rather take a nap…
Do you have balance?
Wanna do my laundry?
I’ll trade you my coffee for some expert advice…
