I want it all.

I decided to check in with the blogosphere and realized more than two weeks have passed since last posting, and my last posts were about Maddie. While I am still finding myself at a loss for words when I think about that tragedy, what I am finding myself truly at a loss for is time. Where do I find it? I am having a hard time finding that work/life/family balance since going back to work full time in January. When I do have down time, I just want to sleep. And then I wake up at ungodly hours like 4:30a.m. unable to return to sleep with all I have to get done flying around in my head. See? Here I am at 5a.m. I know I should be trying to squeeze in a few more moments of sleep because it's going to be a long day. Or packing lunches. Or gathering towels and bathing suits for swim lessons later. Yet I'm here writing this post just so I can say I blogged today and it hasn't been that long since I posted, and I deserve to go to BlogHer, maybe, next year.

All I really want to know right now, all you working moms out there: How do you do it?

I really couldn't, not when my daughter was small and I even worked from home. Now that she is 6 I really feel that I could start working again, but I JUST started feeling this way. I have no idea how other moms do it. Good luck to you know that we are here for you.

Give yourself time. I remember buying a book called "Mother's Guide to Getting Your Groove Back" when my kids were 1 and 3. A little premature on that one. They are 9 and 11 now, and I kinda sorta have a tiny bit of my groove back. Do what you can and try to enjoy the now. It'll get better and easier. Not tomorrow or the next day. But soon.
