Do you ever feel like there is not enough time? I am sure we all do. Lately it has been really affecting me though. We are in the process of moving and things have gone from being busy to absolutely insane! It feels like I have a full time job already with parenting the girls, taking care of the house and on top of all of that, I am trying to find a part time job.
My husband and I decided that I would need to work part time to bring in some supplemental income since we were moving into our new home. When it was finally decided that this was the path to go and our offer on the home was accepted, I went into turbocharge trying to find a job. I would love a work at home opportunity like the millions of other stay at home Moms out there and I do have experience working from home in my last full time job (I couldn't work at home full time though.) So, that is definitely an option and I have been regularly cruising wahm.com and researching every lead out there.
One time, I had created a list of 12 possible opportunities. I diligently started researching and pursuing all of them. It was getting crazy as to which ones I had applied to, who I needed to test with and what in the world is that all about? (These were the ones that I didn't remember doing.) Plus on top of all of this, I decided to blog.
I was spending most of my days baby wrangling, cooking, cleaning, blogging, cruising for jobs, doing errands, packing up boxes, and very little relaxing with hubby, enjoying my kids and well, sleeping!
Then I hit a brick wall. I can't do it all. I am tired. I don't want to put one more thing on my plate. In fact, I wanted to lighten my plate. So, I prioritized every aspect of my life. I have my bible study and time with God that is an absolute must. I am usually good about keeping up with this, but have been struggling with staying present in my studies. So, I have to work constantly to stay focused on His word and not think about the million of "to do's" that I have waiting for me. When it comes to my family, I am always here for them. I will enjoy my ability to stay home with them and relish in the fact that I get to see their most important moments unfold before my eyes. Everything else will fall into place. The right opportunity for part time income will present itself and I will know it.
So instead of frantically eyeing the clock worried that I won't be able to get the girls' diapers changed, drop my entrecards, make dinner, call the utility company, write new post or pack up that next box, I am going to cuddle my babies.
So, see ya later, I am busy being a Mom the rest of the day.
