It is full of school drops and pick ups, figuring out what to cook, grocery shopping, laundry, ironing, cleaning up around the house, study time, park, library, museum and whatever-else-you-can-do-to-entertain-the-kid visits. Whatever time is left over is for sleep and something I like doing – reading a book or watching TV.
Some days I feel like all I have done is trying to get something done or being there for my son and husband. The days just rush by. I feel emotionally drained and spent after all the talking to the kid along with the chores. And that is when I start screaming or getting irritated.
The thing is there is no holiday or break in the schedule! There are so many “I-got-to’s” (I got to do this, I got to do that). There are so many responsibilities and then I must finish chores, eat, sleep, spend time with the kid!
Then I pause and ask myself,
What is it that I really want most?
What is it that I enjoy doing most?
What can I say no to?
What do I want to make time for?
Do I need to cook exotic meals every day?
Do I need to stress myself so much about teaching my kid everything and providing him a well-rounded environment?
The answers to these questions say it all and make being busy worth it! Try it for yourself.
