It started with some travel. We were gone, off our routine, trying to fit in all the things we do on a daily basis without the comforts of daily life to help keep that up. I can't remember the last time our kids actually went to bed at their bedtime. Yet, they still wake up before 8:00!
We didn't make it into the gym on a regular basis. A few at-home workouts here, a quick trip to the gym there, a lot of skipping it completely all around. It hasn't felt the best. My body starts to feel tired and incapable. I'm not as focused on all of these new things I've chosen to do. I added these to my plate though. My choice.
Matt is back in the office for longer days. He's on the phone even more than he used to be. I highly doubt we will get one day at home each week anymore. Recruiting for next season is in full force and his phone is attached to his face.
I started doing a few different things in the last couple weeks.
I now work part-time for a start up company called ChoreMonster. It's an app for kids and parents to connect through technology to get things done around the house. Things like chores! I go into the office once a week, work from home the rest. I still write tweets and craft the weekly internal newsletter for a marketing agency that serves small businesses. I still teach yoga five times every week, sometimes more if subs are needed. Now, I'm writing product descriptions for a local candy company. I can work as much or as little as I want. More work means more money, so here I am writing away.
I also spend the majority of this work time at home with a three year old and a one year old. They aren't exactly self-sufficient. I'll be out of the weeds soon. I think.
