Trying to balance...Life!

Wife. Mother. Employer. Entrepreneur. Accountant. Nurse. Therapist. Chef. Maid. Cab driver. Team Mom. Church life. And most of all, being A WOMAN! Life is taking a toll on us and we are trying to balance it all.  Why? Where is the help? Hey, Mr. Spouse, why aren't you helping me? This is hard to do this by myself but we are a team.  I don't remember anyone spelling TEAM with an I.  

We wear so many hats and we try to balance it all. But, it's so HARD!! There are not enough hours in a day to get done everything that needs to get done.  Okay, I have the to-do list. We see the meal planner on the refrigerator for the week, so we know what we are going to eat.  But do we go by that schedule because we have to run around and do so much, by the time we get home, we are worn out. 

So how do we do it? No ones knows but we just do it. Do we really go by a schedule? Yes and no. We just go with the flow.  It's amazing of how the "woman" keeps the house and errands running smooth and never miss a beat. We don't get in the bed until the midnight hour but we get it done. If it was an easy way to be cloned and not get caught doing it, I think we would all do it. It is also great to network with other women that are busy just like you and see how you both can work together to help each other.  Not only does it take a village to raise children, but it takes a community to help and build each other up. 

Balancing life is not easy but I don't think we would trade it for anything else.  BUT, every woman deserves at least one weekend to herself. That's not a lot to ask for. Just a little way to show wife/mom/woman/and all the other titles we hold, a little appreciation.  

So I'm off trying to balance my...LIFE! 

Until next time,
