I want to give 100% to my marriage, my family, God, my job, etc.
I strive to do my best in all aspects of my life.
But boy is that all a huge job in itself!
Let me be real because I do not give 100%, I get home from work and am stinking exhausted.
Exhausted because I didn't get enough sleep (I need about 9-10 hours to feel my best and function appropriately), exhausted because I woke up at 6:00 AM to start my day, exhausted because I am not mentally all there for my job, exhausted from working a full day, and exhausted from my guilt.
I want to pop right out of bed and get my day started, drop off C at day care, go to work and love every second of it and more importantly to me, have the time and energy for my family.
I want to come home from work and play with C, cook him a nice and healthy dinner, then cook the husband and myself a nice meal, clean up the kitchen and then start on household chores.
But do I do this?Not really.
I do try and make an effort to play with C and be there for him because I think he deserves it, deserves my attention and love. He gets semi healthy meals with some Einstein watching.
But the problem is...My husband deserves my attention too.
Look at my sweet family, don't they look like they deserve all of me. Not just what I feel like giving that day.

I want to cook a healthy and gourmet meal for him because I know he loves that.
But I am just so tired and really don't feel like it.
I want to have the house clean for the most part and still have time for my husband and even things I like to do, like blog for example. How do people get all this done when they get off work? Is it because I go to bed early, between 9-10 and other people stay up later to make all this possible? That is the only thinking I can think of, of why I can seem to get everything done.
Please help me girls and tell me how you "do it all" because this girl is struggling.
