Finding my "groove"

Lately, I have felt like I am "out of synch". I can't get on a routine or schedule without eventually giving up or procrastinating. It is such an awful habit. And now I feel like I am drowning. I have so much going on in my life and it feels like sometimes I am literally not going to get anything done.

I work 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. My office is 35 minutes from my house so I am gone from my house from 7:25 a.m. to 5:35 p.m. Monday through Friday (approximately of course) That is 10 hours a day!!

I have an hour for lunch and on my lunch break I try to study but things distract me usually (i.e. Twitter, Facebook, Blogger, BlogFrog, anything baby related). I bring my lunch to work so I sit at my desk to eat with the full intention of reading my school work. But with the computer sitting in front of me it is hard to not want to check my Facebook/Twitter/Blogger, etc. I have tried sitting in the lunch room to eat but then my phones ring off the wall and I have tons of messages when I get back and I would rather just take them as they come.

When I get home, I want to eat and watch TV. But I NEED to study for at least 2 hours everyday. Unfortunately, my desk is in our TV room (for lack of space elsewhere) and I can't study while hubby watches TV. He will turn it off for a little while but then I eventually get bored of the silence and turn it on and no more studying gets done.

Plus, being pregnant doesn't really "help" the situation. I am usually so tired from work that I just want to lay on the couch and do nothing. I feel hopeless right now.

I have a hard time studying on the weekends that we have the kids (we only have them every other weekend for the whole weekend and then the opposite weekends we have them on Saturday nights through Sunday evening) because I don't want what little time we have with them to spent studying. I want it to be spent kissing, loving, playing with them!

So tell me...how do you manage all the things in your life? Do you ever feel like you are going insane trying to get everything done?

I am going to try and sit down this weekend and write out a schedule, that I will hopefully stick to! Wish me Luck!

P.S. Thanks for listening to my random rant!!


  1. I really need to do a schedule too and stick to it. I think I've been saying that now for four months.

  2. Let's see...I constantly feel like I'm going crazy. School, work, kid, husband, blah, blah, blah. This sememster has been very bad for me as well! Only advice I can give you is to do a schedule and STICK to it. I'm really bad about not but this isn't about me...HA. I would just set out 1-2 hours a night to study and even if that means study an hour, whatch tv a hour, and then back to studying. Whatever works for best but just make sure it fits you!
