Not so much any more.
I don't know if it's temporary (oh, please!), a possible result of this massive move, or if it's something that is going to stick around. Maybe it's a symptom of having so many kids. I know a lot of moms juggle a houseful of kids, hold down a job, and have time to spare. I? Am not one of those moms.
Other than "just" raising the kids and running our household on the day-to-day, my main focus right now is weight loss. I am planning meals, making time for exercise (that bit isn't going so hot right now), cooking like crazy, and drinking so much water that I fear for our next bill. In whatever free time I have, I am still trying to get us settled into this house. It still feels like it is slow going.
Know what I'm not doing? Calling my friends and family. Mopping the floors. Getting signed up for more college courses. Writing. Reading. And I miss that stuff. Okay, I don't miss mopping the floors but I do miss having a clean(ish) house.
A lot of this smacks of having a balance issue, something that I discussed here a few months ago. As a matter of fact, it is probably mostly that. Ugh. Writing this just made me realize that it is exactly that. Still, the same issues. Now I'm going to have to go ponder that because I thought I was going a different direction with this post.
What are your thoughts on multi-tasking and balance? Are they the same thing or just closely related? Where are some areas you feel out of sync? What strategies do you use to keep your life on an even keel?
