I've never been able to juggle.

Starting to feel a bit like I am neglecting my husband.  It has been 4 days and while I know for some people that is the norm it is just not really acceptable.  It isn't just the sex it is sleeping together as well.  I will go to bed with my husband tonight, there is nothing that I can do about the last few days.  I am going to try to get an afternoon nap in so that I am a little fresh this evening.

I have 4 things that I need to get done before I can relax on the vacation we are scheduled to take starting in a week.  These 4 things are on top of my normal management duties at work - so generally I am in a manager role during the work day and have to get my actual work done at night.  I slept for 2 hours on Sunday night, 3 hours on Wednesday and 2 hours last night.  The good news is I think I will actually finish by Tuesday of next week!

Right now I am not doing a great job of balancing everyone's needs - but at least I am aware and can take some steps.  One reason for the extra work during the night hours this week is that my 10 year old had baseball games 4 nights this week as part of an end of year tournament.  I never miss my kid's games, so that took 3 to 4 hours away from time I could have been working (and then heading to bed at a reasonable hour).  I think it is worth the trade off.  I also know that my husband realizes how much I love watching the kids play and supporting their teams, so he gets the choice I make there as well.



  1. honey, i worry about you and your schedule.

  2. There's something to be said about a bit of a break, though... you and Mr Yes will be eager to have some fun when you have the energy and time. Life is never smooth, enjoy the break and take advantage of that eagerness when things align again. :)

    And yes, I'm still reading--not sure if the RSS Feed shows up in your stats or not, but I usually read your posts via email. Still cheering you on! :D

  3. I sure hope you get paid well, cause it sure sounds like you work really really hard!

    I'm sure your husband understands, but good of you to be conscious of the constant juggling and putting some priorities on him too.

    I think it's easy, whether you are male or female, to get wrapped up in our own personal lives and forget about the one we are married to.

  4. My schedule this month has been really bad - but unfortunately in my work that sometimes happens. I have a pending client delivery with a 3rd party partner that is doing everything in their power to ensure failure. To make matters worse my manager just doesn't get it - which is the reason for the job change. Too much is expected of the folks on the team. I am feeling run down now and will make sure to rest this weekend!
