I want to start by apologizing for not posting in over a week. I am not one to make excuses so I will be honest. I have gritted overwhelmed with planning my children’s combined birthday party, dog sitting for my mom, helping my sister while she transitions to a new building for her business, and being a mother of 3. I’m not a single mother but my husband works long hours so it feels like I’m a single parent. I have been so busy with everything that most days I am not home all day. I have been running myself ragged and have unfortunately suffered the consequences. I have a cold that is just draining me because I can’t seem to get any rest. My daughter caught a cold as well so I have not been able to get any sleep.
Anyone who has kids or grandkids understands the struggle of being sick while your kids are sick. It’s impossible to heal while you’re trying to get them to heal. Because of being so busy, overwhelmed, and sick I have not been able to do much party planning or anything for myself. I wanted to use this year to find myself and do things for me. The more I try to stay strong to my resolution the more I seem to fail. Something always comes up and being a parent takes to much time and focus. It truly is hard to live your own life as a parent.
I love my children to death and I love my family. I would do anything for all of them and they know that. I didn’t realize how difficult and challenging my resolution was going to be. I don’t regret my resolution and will continue to try and stay strong. I feel like I need 8 more hours in a day so I can do everything that needs to be done. Living life for the moment is so hard. I am not complaining because my life is pretty great.
Again, I am so sorry for being MIA. I need to get more organized or find a way to fit everything in.
Does anyone have any tips as to how they manage their time? Any secrets to success?
