As mothers, we are just expected to be super heroes: clean, cook, taxi, work, look decent . . . The list goes on and on. I feel I do handle it well most of the time. Some chores around the house I do let slide if it's not a top priority. How else do I make time? I had to reassess my day starting with the time I went to bed and work my way backwards. I then had to figure out what I was doing and how much time I spent doing it, working my way to the time I wake up in the mornings. And do you know what I discovered? I spent a hell of a lot of time in front of the TV! No wonder it seemed like I didn't have time for anything else. Sure, I had to quit watching some shows I really loved and DVR the ones that made the priority list. The DVR shows may sit on the DVR for weeks but I eventually got to them. So the balancing act is better but far from fine tuned!
I wanted to do a little something different for my oatmeal. To add a little flair, I added dried pineapples! Thanks to Nana for sending those home. My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal prepared with 1 cup water
- 1 sliced banana
- 4 dried pineapple chunks, diced
- 6 chopped almonds
How do you busy moms balance it all? Do you let a few things slide like I do or do you do it all?
