It’s 5AM, it’s dark, everyone in the house is asleep. But not me. I’m here typing away because it’s probably the only quiet moment I’ll get today. Why? Because I’m a mom and it’s the weekend. And no matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to find the time to fit everything in that I want to get done.
It’s a never-ending cycle for me. I make lists, schedule my day out, try to work in time for myself, my kid, my husband, and the dog. We have a cat too, but he tends to make his own time whenever he wants to shove his way onto someone’s lap. Then I also need to make some time to take care of the house, the yard/garden and the pool. I also need to work in some time for working on the blog. Of course that involves social media, which can be a total time-suck if I get caught up in it.
And just when I think I’m totally overwhelmed and should probably try to give up sleeping, I try and remind myself that it’s all good stuff. I’m very happy with my life, kid, husband, dog, work, etc. And maybe I should just pop some CBD gummies and chill out. Except I actually did just the opposite and drank two cups of Death Wish Coffee.
It’s about time for the rest of the house to start waking up and then I get to fetch my son something every 5 minutes, take out the dog, clean something and try to remember to get out of my pajamas and brush my teeth. But you know what? It’s all good. I got this. Sometimes I just need to remind myself.
And you- you got this too. It’s a beautiful day out there (at least it is here in Florida) so go out and make the most of it. Whatever the most of it means to you 🙂
