So because I’ve been focusing so much on my Hubby, Shane and the blog layout, I’ve been totally falling short with everything else. Namely, the house is a mess, I haven’t blogged since Monday, and I haven’t started a project for class that’s due on Sunday. I feel like every spare moment I have, I’ve been cleaning, but apparently not well enough because Hubby made a comment about it today. Double sigh.
I think that it really just bothers me because I used to be able to do so much more. The month I got pregnant with Shane, I was a super-active sorority sister with two officer positions, I worked a full time (well, 35-40 hours/week) job in addition to going to school full-time (12 credits a semester) and had four other side-jobs as well, not to mention raising and training Bella who was still a pup at the time & maintaining my relationship with Hubby. Yeah, I was exhausted at the end of the day, but I did everything & I did it well.
Now I’m alumni from the sorority, my classes are all online & my only job is to take care of my home & my family. &I feel like if I could accomplish ALL of that in my “previous life”, I should be on top of all the family stuff and have enough time to knit a sweater and memorize the dictionary.
I always knew that it was super hard to be a mom, whether a working mom, WAHM or SAHM- regardless, motherhood is just hard. But I always thought I’d be the exception, at least somewhat, since I was used to having so much going on.
