How do all you Mums and Moms keep up your blogs? I have returned to work three days a week, and have been back for the last two months, while Dad is currently home full time. But since going back to work time seems to have vanished in some science fiction fashion. The four days not at work seem to run faster than real time and at the end the to do list is longer not shorter.
Now I do have a large job, it has never been 9 – 5, and before my little girl came along I let it swallow too much of my life. I still want to do a good job but other priorities have emerged, re-emerged, and shifted. I do have to undertake some work when I am not at work, but there are so many other things I want to do and I want to make time for them.
But I have to say I have yet to figure out the juggle. I am not going to be too hard on myself. After all I have only been back at work two months, and there is probably been a peak of re-familiarisation that is starting to subside. It has been tiring. I am back to napping once a day when my little girl does the subsequent two days after I have been at work, even though she has been sleeping through the night for a while. I don’t want to be missing in action here or in the rest of my life. Any tips on how to get the juggle working?
