Taking The Time
It's frustrating to me that I haven't been able to post more. As it is, it's 4 a.m. and I'm trying to type this up before catching a few more hours of sleep (I woke up after a few hours of sleep). Time has been hard to find.
But because I'm focusing on living a better life this year, I finally spoke to G about the issue. Between Nora, his job and life, I feel stretched for free time already, and we're about to add in G going back to school. After work. So I've kindly requested to get about an hour to myself to write, at least every other day. We tried doing it with me working upstairs, with he and she downstairs, but if I hear them it gets distracting, and I need a set time limit anyway.
The plan is to head out for coffee several times a week to write. To get a bit of peace. I feel guilty because I'm also taking some time to take workout classes, but realized that I need some space to write. I've been feeling stretched to my limits and out of sorts. As hard as it if for me to buy something for myself, I realized how much I've been struggling to ask for a breather as well.
It's hard to admit that I've been wearing myself thin. I sometimes feel like I should be able to do it all, because it isn't like I'm having to balance a away from home job too. But being a mother to an insane 1 year old who is testing boundaries daily, on top of trying to be a good supportive wife, left me drained but afraid to admit it. So, I'm hoping the video series gets done this weekend (it's a long weekend, surely I can make it happen), and starting next week I'm hoping to get in a post every other day. Life has actually been kind of exciting lately with all the changes I've made, and I can't wait to share all that.
Have a lovely weekend!
