If you have a moment, please take some time to go and vote for my Mamavation application! You can see my application video here, and you can “vote” for me by heading to Twitter and tweeting this: Hey @bookieboo! I want @SkinnySushi to be the next #Mamavation Mom. She has my support! http://bit.ly/zqUxa. As always, your support means SO much to me.
I have to be honest… between raising my daughter, being a wife and daughter and sister and girl, maintaining my fitness, writing articles, running four blogs, and still trying to keep the house in some kind of order…
Well, I’m having a hard time. I’m having trouble with prioritizing and time management. I have a running to-do list that I keep going all the time and update as I finish things, but the problem is that a lot of the things I have to do need doing every day, so they don’t get put on the list because it would irritate me to cross them off and add them back every day. And if you’re a list maker too, you know it’s ridiculous to consider adding them to the list and then not crossing them off. Just typing that made me kittery.
So how do you do it? Whether you work, stay home, raise kids, herd goats… how do you get it all done in a day? I’m especially interested in tips from people who have a non-traditional work schedule/environment (i.e. you work from home or Starbucks or you’re home during the day and work at night…) because I feel like it’s harder to maintain order at home, but I know you all probably have some ideas and I’d love to hear them all!
I’ve thought about trying to schedule my day, but life with a one year old is extremely difficult to schedule. She is *generally* asleep at the same time every day, which is usually when I blog/Facebook/Twitter… so I try to get as much done during those times as I can…
So tell me how you do it, super people. Tell me how you get through your day and make sure that at least the most important things get done. Tell me how you manage to get through the week without letting the same things (ahem… laundry) go by the wayside over and over until you’re crushed by a mountain of your own sweaty workout clothes.
I’m up for anything, so tell me what works for you!
