Riding the Struggle Bus to Sleep Town

I’m having another one of those weeks where finding balance and time to get writing done is a struggle. My husband has spent most of this month out of town for work, which means that I’ve been single-parenting the majority of February. And honestly? I don’t understand how people do this and find time for themselves. I haven’t been able to sit down and get to writing until 9:30-10pm every night this week, which is incredibly rough when you have to be up early to get a kid off to school. Hubby’s not back until Tuesday, either, so it’s going to be another three days until I’ll be able to get any time to myself. Thankfully, my daughter enjoys sleeping in, so I’ll be able to catch a couple extra z’s tomorrow morning, but I’m already exhausted, and I know the end is not as close as I’d like it to be.

The only silver lining for the whole thing, though, is that my daughter and I have been able to spend a lot of quality time together. I am so surprised at how quickly she’s grown up, and it’s a lot of fun to see her becoming more and more of a person. I’m glad I’m able to find at least some balance between the work and my time with her, even though the work tends to lose more often than it wins.

Anyway, since this is a rather stressful week and I don’t have much that I want to talk about, I’m going to just let this be a personal post, rather than an informational one. I’ll try to pick an interesting topic for Monday, and in the meantime, I’ll see you on Sunday for our weekly update.
