I know it has been awhile since I’ve written. Let me tell you life has been pretty hectic as of late. I’m still adjusting to working full time. Let me tell you it’s not easy. I’m having to find time for things that I used to have time for. Like spending time with my kids when they are home, housework, or even cooking a meal.
Now don’t get it twisted I don’t regret making this job change cause it was much needed. I can however admit that there were some benefits to working part time. I appreciated what I had when I had it. But now I’m just working on balancing things out. Especially since I recently added on taking some training for my new job. I can say at times it is overwhelming but nothing worth having is actually easy. I’m showing myself some grace and telling myself that it takes time to get used to a new normal. It also helps that my husband has been very supportive and patient with me in figuring this thing out.
We have had to have conversations about making time for us because there really isn’t enough hours in the day. I swear sometimes the only thing we are able to do when we get home is to hit the bed. That’s how tired we are after fighting traffic to get home. We do try to make an extra effort to reconnect on the weekends. I believe the weekend is our saving grace.
I also try to make an extra effort to include my hobbies in whenever I can. It is also important that I find time to workout. I can totally admit that I have been lazy in that department but I’m working on improving. But life is good.
