Not enough time
I have not been on here blogging for a couple of weeks, I have been so busy I am going out of my mind. I started my new job, which is good, but from the minute I get up in the morning until the minute I go to bed I am rushing. I know you all have lives like this, but for some reason I feel like I can never get caught up.
I have tried changing things up. Instead of going to the gym in the even after work, I have been going at 6:00 in the morning. Trouble is, I just traded rushing home from work to get to my workout, to rushing to get to work after my workout. I tried making my lunch for the next day before I go to bed, but the problem is I didn’t have time to eat dinner, so I end up eating my lunch for the next day before I go to bed.
I don’t have time to go grocery shopping, I don’t have time to pay the bills, I don’t have time to just sit with my wife and talk….because she is just as busy!
About the only thing we find time for is our daughter. We take the time to sit and play, or talk, or wrestle, even though we know in the back of our heads it is only putting us even farther behind. But I don’t care about that; all I care about is seeing my daughter smile and laugh, which makes up for all of it.
But seriously, I have to go now, this is putting me way behind.
