I don’t know how y’all do it.
My past few weeks have been quite busy, filling orders one after the next, and going through the lessons in my class. I can’t complain. My two children both attend full-time school, which leaves me with a large chunk of daytime working hours, and during those hours, work, I do. But somehow, I’m still working every evening too. And barely finding time for life’s work, dinner, and oh, being a parent.
And then there’s this wild and wonderful online community of folks who seem to do it all. With grace, and wit, and talent to spare.
Take Lisa, for instance. She home schools her four children, has a photography business, cooks up a storm, and finds time to write thoughtful, honest posts several times a week.
Erin got a surprising amount of posts published while she packed up her home and moved cross-country. And drove there with her two young kids.
Ella writes often, her blog full of gorgeous styling, very cool downloadable freebies, delicious recipes, and fun crafts–all while dealing with a health issue that effects her every day.
Heather is posting creative projects just a few short weeks after the birth of her third child. Oh, and she home schools her two older boys.
Valarie writes often on her three different blogs, in addition to her work as a composer/pianist,and if that wasn’t enough, she just started her own publishing company and wrote a book.
Susie runs her busy illustration business, is pregnant with her third child, and is currently packing up/trying to sell her house, in preparation to their big move (newborn in tow) to a different country.
Me? I get a good healthy serving of what I have always wanted–an onslaught of jewelry orders–and I declare that something’s gotta give. Total time-management wimp, I know.
I don’t know how you all do it, but I’m in awe. (And I’m taking notes.)
