Hello, out there. Remember me? It's been weeks since I've even opened feedly, and my latest glance at my own blog revealed a measly 11 posts this year. Eleven. Pathetic, I tell you. My apologies to the any loyal readers who are still out there.
While going back to work in January hasn't been consistent smooth sailing, I feel like we've finally fallen into a routine that's comfortable. Needless to say, with only a few limited hours with my sweet girl, blogging has definitely been the short straw in terms of priorities. However, I do really want to keep blogging, I love knowing that anecdotes of our life at this exact moment exist. Words to capture the everyday snippets of our daily routine, the growth and sweet milestones of my daughter's life - so I can one day look back on these with warm nostalgia and remember when.
But between teaching 26 first graders all day long, running errands, making a semi-nutritious and/or healthy dinner, quality time with my husband, and of course playing, giggling, and loving up my daughter…sometimes at the end of the day, a heaping glass of red wine - boxed, of course ;) - and kicking my feet up while I indulge in an episode of Scandal is all I can manage. And don't get me wrong, this is not a complaint in the slightest, as I sincerely love my life, and everything in it. But truly, I'm curious, how do you find balance? Somedays, I feel like I'm a master juggler, all the balls are gloriously floating through the air harmoniously in sync, others, it feels like I'm callously dropping balls left and right. Is there a secret formula I am missing, or does it just take time and practice?
What's your secret to balancing everything in your life?
