The balancing act

So, yesterday in relief society we had a lesson about enjoying our families. Oure RS president's girls have all passed through Young Women while I was in there. So, they're older. She really stressed how we need to cherish the times with these wee ones. I really felt the spirit during the lesson, and felt like perhaps I was putting my family on the back burner these past few days. I made a promise to myself to spend more time playing, less on the computer or at work. Then, today I was playing, and Conner didn't want to play and it was horrible. And then tonight I had to give availability for the next month. I have two jobs, and I know I'm babbling. I just don't know what to do. I hate to burn bridges (aka, quit a job that I really love) and I hate to neglect my family. Of course, when I put it that way there's no choice. My heart's with my family, not with my work, and that's where it's going to stay. Totally aimless Blog entry, but sometimes you need to talk things out...


  1. Does the struggle to find balance as mothers ever end? That's a toughy - especially when you do something you love outside of the home. I'm still working on the balancing act of being a mom and still maintaining sanity and some aspect of being an individual apart from my mom-ness (made up word for the day).

    Children always know how and when to push our buttons. And we are always so good at reacting to what they say. Conner probably knew that YOU wanted to play, and he wasn't going to do it on your schedule. Just keep trying. And trying something else. And something else. It will work out. And don't spend quite so much time worrying about it. That doesn't solve much.
