It's been so long since I posted! Things have been busy busy around here! The kids seem to have us going between basketball practice, games, gymnastics and homework. But all is good! It brings me to this post though about how people fit it all in. I just feel so overwhelmed at times with all the responsibilities that being a mom brings. Don't get me wrong I LOVE being the one to care for my kids, help them with their homework, watch their games and activities. I wouldn't have it any other way. But how do some moms find time for their own interests? That is where I struggle. I think it has come to the point that I don't even know what my interests are! Doesn't that sound crazy?

There are plenty of moms out there who have three, four, even five kids, who work outside the home, keep a clean, organized house, raise kids who are well-mannered and still find the time to craft, take a yoga class or write a book/blog etc... How do they do it? I think for myself something would have to give! Maybe its my personality, I don't know? But I think I am going to make that one of my goals this year. To try and find some "me-time". I'm not suggesting I'm going write a book this year. Why, I would love too but I think that is a little far fetched for this time in my life. I'm talking small mini-goals. For example I am going to get up a little earlier each morning, before the kids get up and take some time for myself. Even though I am so not a morning person, but I think this might do me a well of good! Get my cup of tea and just sit, meditate maybe, think, read. Just something for myself!

How do you fit it all in?
