Life. Balance.

Busy. Exhausted. Overwhelmed. Tired.

All words I have recently used to describe myself. Probably words you have recently used to describe yourself.

I love this time of year, when the weather gets warmer and the sun comes out. But, it brings along a super busy schedule. Juggling work, personal, and everything in the middle can be hard. Everything pulls me in a different direction {getting major projects done at work, getting stuff ready for a garage sale, playing softball, volunteering my time on a local board, taking care of Maximus, spending quality time with my husband, doing housework, making food…the list goes on}. Even if I divided my time into perfect little sections, I would still be cut thin.  

I’m always trying to figure out how to better manage my personal time so I feel like I’m getting everything in. But, I don’t try too hard. I get the main things done…baby first, food second, and house third. Husband and personal come last. And of course blogging comes after everything else. You see, I haven’t figured out a good routine for my evenings. By the time Maximus has gone to bed I am exhausted. I grab my phone and check in on the Internet, then I take out my contacts and go to bed. Every night I crawl into bed and wish I’d have gone to bed an hour earlier.

I have no answers. I have no way of tricking life into slowing down. But, I’m going to keep trying. I’m going to keep chipping away on this thing called balance.
