WOW! I'm tired, I'm talking about that tired to the bone that isn't cured by a good nights sleep. The kind of tired that relief comes only as your children age and the constant "on" switch is able to dim a little. I keep waiting for the terrible twos to come to an end, but, I can't help but wonder if it ever will. Am I gonna have one of those boys that just remains a challenge? "One day at a time" I tell myself, "Just take it one day at a time."
I, unfortunately, am not one of those lucky moms that only has one job. (Being a mom) No, I have to work outside the home, as well as the full time job as M-O-M. Things in my career life are moving forward. I am finally wrapping my head around all I have learned in the last year, and my ultimate goal is very close. But I find myself in over my head at home. I spend all of my time cooking, cleaning, prepping for the next day, the whole time trying to beat the clock so I get enough sleep to do it all again. I have, as a result of my at home madness, stopped having a life separate from my kids. Something I am finding to be crucial to one's sanity.
I haven't even been able to steal the few minutes it takes to post here. Before my last post I hadn't even turned on my computer in weeks. Can you believe that-weeks! It's insanity.
So if I have any readers left, I want to ask you a question, or for advice really. How do I steal those much needed moments for myself? Moments to log on, call a friend, or heaven forbid, take a bath? Please don't add salt to injury by telling me how you leave your hubby with the kids and off you go. No hubby, no night time sitter, no relatives close enough to just pop over. I'm needing ways to stretch the clock, easy recipes, cleaning schedules and/or tips, anything that will allow my burden to lessen. Anything that will allow me a couple extra minutes. I'm only asking for a little, I don't need too much.
