Taking the Time

It always takes me back when people ask me how I have time to do all the things I do. Take this blog for instance, I had a friend ask me where do I find the time.

It got me thinking about where I do find the time. I mean, I keep a fairly clean house. You might not be able to eat off the floor, but who'd want to anyway. I keep the dishes clean -they might pile in the sink waiting to be put away, but they're clean. I keep the laundry done- I even have a "laundry day". (This week it's today.) I work a few days a week and spend time with my husband and son, and also with friends.

Somewhere in all of this, I also manage to eek out a few minutes to write, read, watch TV, or whatever else I find interesting at the time.

Before I was married my mother-in-law gave me some advice. She said the dishes, the vaccuuming, and all the cleaning will always be there, but your children will not. Take the time and enjoy it. You can always clean later.

So, I guess I adopted that into this. There are always going to be chores to do (and most of the little ones get done quickly). Do what you need to do, but always give yourself some time in the day to do something you want to do. That, my friends, is how I have time to do all the things I want to in a day. I take the time to do it.
