Welcome to the real world

So I have started working part time as a music teacher and early morning provider for kids at a local preschool.  I love my job and am learning as I go, so I am spending extra time to make sure that everything goes well.  I now have all 3 kids in school which is terrific!  They all love it and all get homework and also participate in fun activities after school.  So you do all this, best of both worlds, working in the morning, taking care of kids in the afternoon.  But wait, what happened?  Where is the free time you thought you would get once they were older?  By the time they are in bed and everything is ready for the next day you are done, you are tired and there is no time left to do the things you had some time to do while baby was sleeping.  This leaves weekends.  You do have them, and if you can carve out a spot of 2 or 3 hours you can do it, actually have some time to do the fun things.  I have learned that it is fun to plan an occasional weekend outing with the family but that we all need the down time.  So today, I have told myself that I will spend time crafting.  Maybe the next free time will be finding time for myself to read.  But the time will be there.  The pictures of what I make will be the proof.....  Have a wonderful day and remember to find time for yourself.....
