Bit of a rant post really! I sit here looking at my to-do list and just want to cry!!
Why does time go so fast, why can't I learn to use it more effectively? Why cant I own Bernard's watch?!
Anyone that hasn't seen the program it is about a little boy who has a watch which stops time! Now he uses it to get into mischief but I just want one to be able to get more work done!!! Surely thats fair?
I juggle a job, a business, a toddler and a home to keep on top of.....for 2 days a week I work a full day so wake up, get Hayden ready for his childminder, work all day, come home, do dinner, try to do a little bit of cleaning, bath & bed time routine then down onto the computer to work again....then bed! My poor neglected partner!
Another 2 days I do the same thing but I have photo shoots - and then friday is my "day off" where I would love to spend as much time as I can with Hayden but I do have chores to do too! So we always spend the morning playing and go swimming on a Friday with Turtle Tots and then back home (where he usually has a small nap) so I can get some washing and cleaning done!
Every night I am glued to the computer working and I really need to get this work/life balance thing into action.......but my to-do list is forever growing....website, blog, marketing, emails, client orders, spreadsheets, accounts!
As of January 2013 I will be on maternity leave so I HOPE this will give me some time to cross lots off my list and start a fresh!
How do you juggle your busy lives? Is there a secret I am missing? I would love to hear from you!
