A time to call your own?

Do you remember when you had time? Not just an extra hour in the day, but an entire day to call your own?

Before babies, swim lessons, PTA meetings, and work conferences, we actually had some sort of a personal life.

Balancing life is tricky.

I say this with no kids, no PTA meetings, and no real work pressures.  I am amazed - How does everyone with all those extra challenges do it?

Taking some sick time this week, I have zero energy to work on things I need to work on at home, so I am left feeling a little overwhelmed. I know I can do it, but man, it's exhausting when you're sick. It gives me a new appreciation for time, but also begs the question: do we really need to get sick to slow down?
