Balance. I stink.

There's the little thing called balance.
We all deal with it. Some struggle more than others.
But lately... I stink at it.

If I'm promptly answering all the emails that need answered, I'm not spending enough time with my kids.

If I'm spending ample time with the kids, the house isn't getting cleaned.

If the house is getting cleaned, I'm not able to keep up on production and product development like I should.

If I'm keeping up on production and product development, I'm not able to do PR like I'd like.

If I'm doing PR like I feel needs done, I'm losing my friendships.

If I'm making time for my friends, I'm not spending time each day exercising.

If I make time to exercise, I rarely have time for a shower because then I have to jump straight into work.

If I don't take a shower, I stink.

See the pattern here?
Basically, I stink. Not usually to the nose, but definitely at the balance thing.

I'm working on it a lot lately.

Each new week I'm telling myself that THIS is the week I'll get back on track.
THIS is the week things will fall into place.

But for this weekend? It's all about spending time with The Man and our kids, playing, gardening, living life.

That balance thing can wait until next week.

Love the photos- especially the one with the tire swing!
Hang in there!

I too am always looking for a sense of balance and am beginning to wonder if it will ever come. Happy weekend!

Balance... My constant struggle!

Look, I tripped on my foot today (while in public-awesome). So, literally or figuratively, I am not good at the balance thing. ;)

I think things will always be a little unbalanced until heaven. :)
