One of the biggest challenges I've found since adopting - and returning to work full-time - is finding the time to do much else! Between work and family - by the end of the day I'm beat!
Hence my lack of blogging. Ahem.
Yeah, I'm working on that.
My job is such that it has me hopping all hours of the day. Sometimes I have to work evenings. I work weekends. So finding that important family time has really been key for us as we're finding our way as a forever family. And I'll be honest, I often feel guilty for having to rush off to "work commitments" when I know my girls would rather have me at home.
But in the midst of trying to balance career and family, some of my other "loves" have been put on the back burner. My blogging for one. Even my Internet time in general.
Reading doesn't happen all that often and the amount of time we sometimes spend on a given evening to catch up on favourite shows that aren't for the girls is kind of laughable.
Don't get me wrong, Internetz, I wouldn't trade this for the world. For. The. World.
But for all those other moms out there -- how do you balance it? Do you give yourself "me" time? How often?
And if you're in a career that you love - how do you give it - and your family equal time and commitment? Or can - and should you?
PS - A dear Blogger, Maddy, lost her mom recently. Her blog is private, so you're not able to share words of support there (unless you're one of her readers) - but please take some moments to think of her and her family during this difficult time. Love to you Maddy. xo
