Too busy… time to write

I am sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t have enough time to do all the things I want to do, which in my case is mostly writing. Even though I only work part time, I still struggle to fit things in. I know this is not limited to parents, although those with children do seem to suffer from it more. It is not just that there aren’t enough hours in the day, there are two other problems that ensure you don’t get around to doing anything.

The biggest one is, without a doubt, tiredness – or should I say exhaustion. In theory I could spend a couple of hours writing every evening, but by the time it is 9pm I am so tired that I just want to go to bed and read my book for a while.

The second one is the unpredictability of children. Even if there would be the odd evening where I would have enough energy to do something productive after 9pm, this would most likely be the night that Elisabeth doesn’t want to sleep.

So, I have decided to give up trying doing anything, apart from writing the odd blog post, in the evening and try and squeeze in an hour of writing in the morning. My husband is up early most mornings so it’s not like I’ll be losing out on sleep….sleep is for losers anyway πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks, it’s quite frustrating, I hate not using my time in the evening to do stuff, but I guess you need to leave some time to do nothing and charge your batteries for the next day.

  1. I’m usually too tired at night to write too, but for some reason, I sit down at the computer anyway and next thing I know, three hours have passed and it’s the wee hours of the morning and I just can’t stop. It’s an awful addiction when you have young children who get up before the sun does. 😦
