We are not butter.....

I have always loved to write. It is a cathartic way for me to express myself and get out any things I have wandering around in my subconscious. Starting this blog was the exact thing I needed three years ago when I was a single mom of six kids.

Today my life is just as busy however my focus is a little different. I work full time still, I have kids in sports, but now I have a significant other that requires attention as well, so much of the attention I had placed on myself has to be split with him.

So when people ask me, "How do you do it all?" My first response is, "I am not sane."
I realize how I make time for myself and my family:

* I make sure to do my computer time when it has the least impact on the family.

* There is a lot of prioritizing and making sure I'm not spreading myself too thin.

* Sometimes I have a cocktail next to the computer, because it's MY time.

* My photos are my memories long after I leave this world, they are just as important to stay a top of, so I sort them and that to me is a legacy I'm creating for my kids.

* This is my second job, and there are times when I walk away from dinner or movie night to get a post done. It's okay.

Don't get down on yourself when you have a day where all you do is stare at a screen, just remember, we are not butter... we should never be spread that thin.
