It’s Weekly Winners day today… but I got nuffin’…. nuffin’. Not even a photo of the ducklings. Zip. Zilch. Nada.
It’s not that this past week has been crazy busy or anything. I mean it has been busy, what with extra school visits and catching up with friends and going to the land of fast internet and free babysitting (aka my parent’s place). We also spent lots of time outside in the garden, and I’ve been plugging away at some design jobs I have on, and writing for a couple of other blogs. So yes, it’s been busy, but not crazy busy.
Not busy enough to make my head spin, or make me loose the plot entirely, or make me forget to pick up the camera… except I did… forget the camera that is.
It’s just that it’s tricky.
It’s tricky trying to balance everything and not stuff it all up.
It seems that I can’t be on top of everything all the time. If I am kicking goals in the parenting department and blogging amazing stuff then I am letting the team down on my design projects and the house is a shambles… and any and all combinations of the above. None of that is really surprising, what is surprising is that I haven’t figure out a way forward until now.
If I can’t juggle all the balls I have then I probably need to put one down, yes?
Seems so simple when you put it that way… but life is a little more… um.. tricky!
It’s not like I can ditch the parenting thing, nor the cooking thing and I am only doing the bare minimum of cleaning as it is. Plus I actually like those jobs – ok so the kids drive me nuts sometimes and laundry is my enemy, but I confess to being quite proud of the fact that I am able to stay home and parent my kids and manage our household. So getting rid of that stuff is definitely out.
Then comes the other stuff… blogging and designing. I’m not ditching those either. That stuff is important to me… it is about me being me, not me being a mother or a wife or a cook.
So I could just ditch sleep…. yeah that’d work. Or not.
Actually I have a few other ideas up my sleeve to try before I stop sleeping…. and that may mean a few changes around here, hopefully for the better! So please bare with me while I figure out this tricky stuff and do yell out and tell me if I’m boring you to tears or anything like that.
Promise I’ll fill this space with photos next week!
