I’ve got to say that that schedule is not working for me (as I indicated rather indelicately in yesterday's Project Life post). I am NOT a night owl, so I really only have a 2-3 hour window of personal time between Kate’s bedtime and my own, and lately, blogging is taking up too much of that window. It leaves me feeling burned out (my soul, and my retinas from starting at a screen all day long), and I just want to scream, “the blog was made for woman, not woman for the blog!!”
- Reading (which I always do in bed before turning out the light, even if I’m up late)
- Playing board games or snuggling up for a movie with Matt (if he gets off the computer too)
- Talking with Matt (who knew that connecting with your best friend would require such intentionality?!)
- Getting stuff done (maybe I don’t “enjoy” the washing and mending and cleaning up, per se, but I do enjoy the thrill of marking things off a to-do list!)
So, if my posts seem, well, lazier in the coming days or weeks, this “reclaiming” may be why! But I do enjoy blogging too, and I’ll soon find a new balance.
Do you have trouble claiming time for yourself and your spouse? What things tend to threaten that time?
