Too Much To Do, Never Enough Time!

Before I had my kids, I worked full time, 40+ hours a week. I enjoyed working, so it wasn't that big of a deal. Now that I am a mom of two, I find it so hard to juggle it all. 

I was really excited when I found part time work at night when my hubs can be with the boys. I am here all day long, to do the stay-at-home mom thing: cleaning, cooking, bills, laundry, playing, etc. and then at night I transform into Super Working Mom. Just for a few hours, anyway! :)

I just find it so hard to fit all of the demands of one day into a single day. There is all the household stuff, and trying to play and spend quality time with the boys, along with blogging (which often gets neglected and pushed to the back, even though I don't want it to), then my "real" job and all that entails. Add on trying to find time for myself and trying to actually have a conversation with my hubs, it's nearly impossible!

My goal for this new year is to try to incorporate some time management techniques that will help me to do all the things I need and want to do. I am so tired of feeling like something has to suffer. I am really glad that I was able to find decent part time work, because there is no way that I could even try to work a full time job right now. Not with Tater in school, and Bean home all day... Too much juggling babysitters and daycare, work and home, shew.. exhausting just to think about it!

So my question for you guys is : 

Do you have any secret tips or tricks to help manage your time? 

I would love to hear them! Share them in the comments below so we can all learn!

  1. Heard that old saying about letting the housework go and spending time with the kids? I wish I'd paid more attention to it when my kids were kids. Other than that, don't be too proud or afraid to ask for some help. Working in "me" time is important too.
