Lately I’ve been feeling a little run down– torn in too many directions. Balance is constantly a battle for me. Between raising Ruby, making sure she is my focus during the day, blogging, shooting and producing videos, renovating, following other opportunities and Jon working like mad basically since November, I find little time for simple things like hitting the gym or buying lipstick. It sounds trivial, and I am so grateful for all of the things that demand my time, but I feel like I need to pull things into balance a bit.
Part of my problem is that one of my best friends recently moved out of state (wahhhhhh!!!) and our almost daily routine of mom/tot activities have now become a duo of just Rubes and me. And while I think I’m a generally outgoing person, I’ve found stay-at-home motherhood to be a bit isolating. Tell me I’m not alone in this.
I’ve made an effort this week to plan a bunch of activities for us, and we gave the daycare at the gym a go today with much greater success than in attempts past, so I’m feeling confident about my reunion with Pilates in the near future and we have a schedule full of a slew of learning/growing/playing activities for Ruby and me together.
I know, I know, we all have as many hours in the day as Beyonce…. just without the personal trainers, chef, nannies, maids, glam squad, and assistants. That entourage surely buys her a few more hours than I have, right? At least one hour. Oh what I wouldn’t give for an extra full, uninterrupted, productive hour.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Mine will be filled with working on a huge project in the family room, filming some upcoming videos, and squeezing in some family time with my two favorites.
