A Little "Me" Time

 Alarm goes off at 5:30am and then…the day begins. Breakfast for hubby, pray for hubby, back to bed, feed the kids, exercise, feed myself, shower, Wal-Mart (way too often), lunch for kids, lunch for myself, drive the kids to wherever it is they need to go, marketing (when I have time), writing (when it’s possible), dinner for family, time alone with hubby…maybe. I think it is clear. Time to make a schedule.

With our lives becoming as busy as they are, time is golden.  Even when I think I’m going to end up with a time block in which to write, I end up doing something else. I have discovered that time with the family is becoming increasingly more difficult to secure. Sometimes I look upon the pile of laundry that is mine (and my husband’s) and think to myself…really?

I used to consider myself to be very organized: Almost meticulous. Now it’s more like, “Mommy, would you hold onto this for me?” And I say, “NO! You know I’m just going to lose it.” When did that happen? When did I become that person?

I think when there is too much going on, something’s gotta give. There is no doubt that it should not be the family. So what do I think I need to do about this? Plan a little better, wake up a little earlier and schedule all things that need to be done each week. It can be done. Really…it can.

So for those mom’s out there with a full time job, children, a husband and a million other chores in your future, I salute you. Being a mom is the most challenging and most rewarding job you will ever love.
