Time seems to always get away from me, whether it be the day or the weekend. I blink and my weekend is gone and everything I had planned to do hasn’t been done. It’s not that I was unproductive, I just get easily distracted.
Let’s be honest here, as parents our minds are going a million miles per minute. We are working to keep kids, work and home all balanced. I have to remember 4-H meeting schedules, field trips, school fundraisers, animal appointments, etc. You get the picture.
This past weekend is a prime example. I had every intention of writing a couple of product reviews, work ahead in my MBA class and maybe get around to folding that mountain of laundry. (Laundry is a topic for another day…) So it is now Monday morning and when I reflect on my weekend, what did I actually do? I took down my holiday/winter decorations and moved some furniture around. Not exactly the items on my list.
Even now as I write this, my mind is wondering to all the deadlines, and need to do’s on my list for this week. Will I get to them? What will I be able to cross off my list? What will still be on my list next Monday? I feel like a hamster on a wheel, my only goal is to keep the wheel spinning and not fall off.
