Time is Driving Me Crazy! Advice Sought...


Or is it the lack of time? Really it is probably my scheduling time. I have some blog awards that I want to put up, and actually my intent is to do that I also have a ton of blog reading to catch up on. Time is soooooo hard.

Do you have a difficult time with...well...time? I have so many things I want to do, but my priorities have to rest with my son and my husband first. Above all else at home, I want them to always know they come first. The past two weeks have been about that because I have had a cranky few weeks here. :)

The past few weeks have also been fairly chaotic as I have accepted and learned new responsibilities at work. One is I am now running our radio station's Monday Ministry Spotlight which is great. It is a huge part of our programming and can be a huge reference for our listeners in regards to getting involved in the Christian community and getting involved with helping other ministries grow or even just finding a ministry that will help them where they are at right now. So far it is helping me with sleepless nights. I wake up wondering who I am going to find to fill in this date or that date. There are plenty of great organizations out there, but to find the one that fits for the time of the interview can be tough. Then there is just the added issue of scheduling, getting the interviewee to come up with interview questions and a fact sheet. Making sure their interview is focused on their ministry and not on just the person in general. It is enough to give me an ulcer or twenty!

I can't even think about it really.

Then there is my money saving spot. That is not such a rough thing really. I just have to find out some great deals that I can share with our listeners, and it is only once a week. THAT I can do with about two hours of show prep. Still that is two hours every week that I really cannot devote to much else, but I can use it to help out household save money so that is good...right?

Anyway, I guess I really just need to learn how to budget my time. I write down my money budget. Maybe I should do the same with my time. Not that you can schedule family time, but maybe I can at least schedule the other things.

If anyone has some suggestions...I am all ears and eyes! I know a lot of great bloggers out there. How do you guys do it all? How do you keep life in line with your time? How do you priorities?

Hugs Kelly,

You do have a busy schedule. I am getting overwhelmed with my TBR pile for blog tours and trying to find time to write and my regular job, plus putting stuff on my blog. I am sort of glad I don't have a family not sure if I could juggle that too..LOL

Hope you figure everything out,
Stormi :0)

Hi Kelly, thanks for stopping by and sending out the cyber hug. So, right back at ya' sweetie!

Advice, hmmmmm, does your son have to do chores around the house to help out? Maybe he could be entrusted with a few jobs to do. I know my daughter is not strict with her kids as far as them doing anything. She tries to be superwoman and leaving for work before 7 am and not getting home until 6 pm is pretty tough. My grandson is 14- he could do a lot and don't even get me started on the 17 yr old granddaughter! Getting her to empty the dishwasher makes for drama time.

This may sound silly but I try to write down 3 things I want to accomplish in a day. If I get those 3 things(besides normal routine stuff) done, I feel better. It's not easy being Mom, wife and working woman these days. I commend you. It sounds like you have a tremendous load of responsibility on your young shoulders. Enough babbling from me. Have a good week!
