I used to have it all figured out. I posted five days a week on this blog...worked...worked out...and enjoyed "my" time. And then I had kids...and all hell broke loose!! ;)
But in all seriousness, you've probably been wondering what the heck I've been doing and the truth is, I'm just surviving over here! Life with two kiddos is a game changer...oh, and working full-time too! Notice, I haven't mentioned my husband?? Don't worry, he's here...but we're in full on survival mode these days.
I had a blogger friend email me the other day, asking how I do it all. And the simple answer is, I don't. Not even close! But here's what I told her:
First of all, you are one amazing lady and you need to remind yourself of that every single day! Working full-time, being a wife and mom full-time, AND trying to blog regularly is not easy!
I've decided that I can do it all, just not all at once...does that make sense??
I don't have time to blog every day right now...just not gonna happen. But I do try to commit to twice a week and I don't beat myself up if I can't do even that. It's life. Work is SO hard right now...like really, really hard, but I'm committed and it's ultimately up to me to manage my time. I try to wrap up at 5pm every night and be present when I get home. Ryan and I split after work duties...he cooks, I play/bathe/and attempt to feed dinner Oh and we have a house cleaner that comes every other week. Best thing ever. We can't really afford her but we refuse to turn back because it is SO helpful! She does laundry, dishes and cleans...it's a life saver.
My best advice? Breathe! And don't feel guilty. Oh, and it's Friday...have a glass of wine!! ;)
And then, I read Little Baby Garvin's post and literally felt like I had nothing to complain about!! :) Whew, three kids sounds fun, doesn't' it?!!
Oh and I also read Cup of Jo's post and decided wine is the answer to all things!
Funny how a change of perspective cures all, amiright?!
So anyway, forgive me for my absence, but know I am here and I still love you all! Follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (schuelove) for more regular updates!
