I've been struggling with balance lately. Both my husband and I have been working a lot, too much. It's unusual for us be busy at the same time and I am thankful this is not a regular occurrence.
I was recently cleaning out my internet bookmarks and came across an article I had bookmarked: "The 10 Secrets of One Unflappable Working Mother". It's a good reminder for me right now. 10 tips that will prove helpful when I implement them...
My favorite tip is #5: Getting out the door in the morning (without anyone in tears) is the only thing you have to achieve before 8:30 a.m.
I really do need to work on # 8: Leave your kids (and the stories about them) at home.
Hope you find this helpful!
