I'm a little bit baffled. There appear to be fewer hours in a day than there used to be.
All those years ago when I began homeschooling, we had a third grader, first grader, three-year-old and one-year-old in our family. I still kept up with laundry, had a hot meal ready at dinnertime (well, usually) and maintained our home so it stayed at a decent level of cleanliness.
As time passed, the kids got older so my work load shifted as they took on responsibilities at home. That allowed me to work part time for about nine of the past eleven years.
Now I work two part-time jobs, mainly from home, but I cannot keep up with anything anymore. The concept of time management, which I thought I had nailed, is eluding me.
Laundry sits in baskets for days turning into a wrinkled mess. The clock reads 5:30 p.m. and I am clueless about what to put on the table for dinner. We run out of milk and fruit and laundry detergent. The bathroom sinks are grimy and none of the windows have been washed for a very, very long time.
Where is all of that missing time going?
Have any of you noticed some strange time shift in the past decade? What do you do to keep yourself on schedule and carpe diem?
