It’s been about 3 months since I started a new “part-time” work schedule, and I finally feel like I’ve found a groove. For a while I was questioning my decision to alter my schedule because my days “off” were complete chaos. I was running back and forth between school and school bus drops offs; in between I would run an errand or two and hustle back home to get L’il Buddy down for his nap. Before I knew it, it was time to do school picks ups again. The house would be a mess and I never even got the chance to open my laptop, let alone get some blogging or Blogalicious work done.
I’m pleased to say that I’ve developed a routine and have regained control of my days. Of course some Mondays are better than others, but for the most part, I’m a happy camper. My kids love it too and look forward to the days that I stay home. On the flip side, because I work from home on Fridays, I am only in the office 3 days/week. While this is great for my family, it’s tough on my work mindset and workload. But I’m not complaining; I’m sure I will figure that out too.
Is there such a thing as the perfect work-life balance?
