Then there's the weekend, when different priorities take over. Since I teach piano lessons during the usual supper hours each week, my favorite place to be on a Saturday morning is in my kitchen, cooking and baking for the weekend and the coming week ahead. While catching College Game Day on ESPN.
Some household routines I keep up with very well, like the laundry. Not a hard thing when it's just the two of us. Other tasks, like cooking during the week, is an easy one to let slide. After all, it's just the two of us, so let's go grab a quick bite somewhere! Not really proud of that one, and very thankful for an understanding husband.
I guess at the end of the day, I just want that satisfied feeling that comes when things were accomplished with a calm manner in a reasonable amount of time. If I can't do that, maybe I am overcommitted. Is that too much to ask?
This post is part of a series while I focus on learning something new every day in September.
