I’ve been totally out of it lately.
I thought I had got the swing of things once I started back to work.
I’ve spent the past 6 years being the parent of one kid and then for shits and giggles threw in another.
The thing is I’m not an organized person.
Seriously. It’s bad.
I thought I had my shit together, but then school started back up.
And then soccer started.
And gymnastics will start.
And I’m out of shape.
Note: I totally started P90X and then quit because, seriously, who has time to work out AND watch tv?
Here’s a rundown of my schedule:
6:15-6:20: Get out of the bed with the baby
6:30: Wake Lael up, give baby to hubby, shower
6:45: Take baby back from hubby (because he needs to snooze), get dressed, get Lael together
7:15: Send Lael off to the bus, nurse the baby
7:20: Leave for work (I walk)
7:30-11:30: Work (pump once)
1130-12:30- Walk home for lunch, nurse the baby, walk back to work
12:30-4:30: Work (pump once)
4:30-Walk back home
5:00-Help with homework
5:30-6:30-Soccer on Mondays and Wednesdays
6:00-7:00-Finish homework if needed/Dinner
8:30- Get Lael into bed
After I get Lael in the bed I try to get dishes done, pack her lunch, wash bottles, blah blah blah.
I am in the bed by 10 and I’m exhausted. I need to clean, vacuum, do laundry.
In addition to that I need to start working out, I’m room parent for Lael’s class, and I need to start studying for Tech (my next rank).
I need tips on how to make things work. There doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day.
How do you guys stay organized and sane at the same time?
