I'm a work at home Mama.
And the last few weeks I've been an unhappy one.
I felt (and still do to some degree) stretched too thin in every area of my life. There is nothing I hate more than thinking about looming deadlines as I rock my babies to sleep. It's like people say... when you're here, you're not really here. That was me.
When I'm with my kids, I want to be with them. And when I'm at work, I want to be at work.
I will admit I took on too much this summer, and according to my rules and calendar I'm basically booked until November and I have to force myself to accept that.
I read a few articles tonight to help with the WAHM thing.
I hope they're as magical as the article says. Basically I need to be an organizational neat freak... the completely opposite of who I am. It said to get things done asap, and not to wait for a deadline and that you'll feel free for once. I've got a lot of traits I need to ditch and several I need to pick up.
I've got a lot of work to do.
