Perhaps I’m Built Like A Man

26 Jul

I was telling Ben this weekend that I remember living in Columbia and being completely bored out of my mind after the workday was over. Like, I had a super unhealthy television addiction and obsession with the public library going on. Could we go back to that, please?

How do women who have families and careers do it? My grandmother did it. My mother did it. My aunts did it. My friends do it. Surely I could do it…right? Well, I’m not so certain.

Managing work, social activities and volunteer activities is hard enough for me. Throw in the dog, the house and searching for a car – and I’m spent. If I had another “being” to take care of, one of us wouldn’t make it.

    It is a tough juggle! I am fortunate to have a great husband to even the score. I also have to say "no" to some things and prioritize my family vs. my social/volunteer/etc.

    Prioritizing…yes, I need to look into that.Hats off to you, Amy – you do a great job managing all of it!
