I don't think I ever realized how much time having a full-time job takes away from my personal, daily activities! I was unemployed last year, and I was home for almost a full year. In this year, I had the time to workout, cook, clean, spend time with my family, and stay up to date on all my favorite tv shows. Now, I barely have time to cook :/
I've tried working out in the morning, but that is a disaster! Waking up at 4:30 am to get atleast a 30 minute workout & try to not make too much noise to disturb my family living downstairs is impossible....mainly the waking up at 4:30am part!! Then I get home around 5-5:30pm, to change clothes, start cooking - on days we don't rush off to baseball practice - then eat when dinner is ready. I could try to squeeze in a workout before dinner, but I enjoy eating at the same time my family does, so there goes that time. Then I've thought of working out 2-3 hrs after dinner, but by that time I'm usually falling asleep on the couch so there you go....my day in a nutshell! Atleast I've made sure to keep some family time (dinner, homework help) and home cooking in there, but everything else is suffering. I started a book 3 months ago....I'm still on chapter 5 :/ I try to catch up on all my shows on the weekends (thank God for my DVR) but I still have months worth of shows.
I started working again over 6 months ago and I'm still trying to balance my time accordingly. I have no idea how I managed to do this for all the other years......that year of unemployment really spoiled me....LOL!!
I think "moms" should be paid to stay home....I for one think we work more at home than we do in any office!!!
LOL, yeah....I know, I'm nuts....my hubby will be the first to telll me so!!
