I have a secret. Sometimes, I think I'm wonder woman. Super woman. Super mom.
I am on the verge of the busiest time of the year for me. We enter the last quarter of school, I'm in charge of Junior Prom, all three of my kids birthdays are within the last 16 days of March, music festivals, soccer games, dance recitals and competitions, Easter, Parent/Teacher conferences...you get the idea.
Here's my stress. I have been doing pretty good at writing regularly. How the heck do I keep that up when I'm being pulled every which way?
I have decided to streamline a bit. Last year, for my kids' parties, I did the whole at home plan everything parties. I'm not doing that this year - I'm trying to convince them to do something at a place that is cheap and where the party is pretty much already planned.
There really isn't any way to streamline prom.
And I have finally come to grips with the fact that, concerning my kids schedules, sometimes it's okay to divide and conquer as parents rather than both of us trying to get to everything.
How do you keep things prioritized when life gets crazy? What are you willing to give up for the sake of your writing?
