Wow, it's been a long time since I posted to my blog......Soemtimes I over think it and then don't post because I'm trying to come up with a very thought out synapsis, so from now on I am going to try to be more spontaneous.
Lately I have been struggling with balance. Sometimes my nutrition and fitness are insanely dialed in, but I'm not spending time on my relationships or the house is not as clean as it should be, or there is shopping that needs to be done. I am realizing that if I try to specialize in one event, the rest suffer. How does a girl find some balance.
A perfect day would look something like this:
Wake up and go to a meeting, pack lunches and backpacks before going
Come home to children who have been dressed and fed by their father, gather items for the day and pack bodies and items into car
Have a seemingly fluid drive across town to preschool, drop children off in their respective classrooms with no tears or tantrums. kisses, hugs and happy faces are preferable
Miracously make it to work on time...that would be 8 am sharp (rarely happens!!)
Have productive day at the office, using lunch break strategically for errands, like: bank, gas, target, trader joes, etc.
Leave the office for home, children have been picked up by husband or grandma
Arrive home and procure dinner in a fairly low stress manner and the food should be healthy and consumed by all with minimal to no whining about vegetables.
Somehow possess enough energy to get to a Corssfit class and kick $ss in my WOD, and see my friends
Make it home in time to read a story or two and have a kiss goodnight.....children are bathed and teeth are brushed
Mange to find 20 minutes of time for domestic chores so house does not look like clutters ville!
Have meaningful conversation with Jeffrey, potential adult exploits, fall over and crash hard to wake up and do it all again.
Like I said above referenced day is best case scenario and only occurs once in a blue moon. A number of variables can occur on a regaular basis that interrupt the mission....
Gotta love it when it all falls into place!!
