So for now I'm finding it easy to make time during the day for working out twice, taking the baby out for a walk, keeping up on my housework, helping the older kiddos with their homework. But I'll soon be going back to work and am really wanting to stick to this but add 8 plus hours away from home, how on earth am I going to be able to stay on top of things. I'm no stranger to working for a living but I'm just kinda freaking out, time is my worst enemy!!
Right now, I'll get up in the morning, work out for an hour, hop in the shower, have breakfast, put the baby for a nap, do all the housework, get in about a half hour of me time (computer, phone or reading), get baby up, play, lunch, take a walk, play some more with the babe, pick kids up from bus stop, homework, naptime again for the baby, second workout (these may soon be eliminating since the little monster has decided on a 20 min nap), more housework, supper prep, eat, supper cleanup, tuck the kids in, then collpase on the couch and catch an hour or so of t.v. before I'm off to bed!
I know you all do this too, but could you working parents out there give me an idea of what your day looks like, so I can get some ideas on how to manage my time once I get back to work? The cool thing is my work has an onsite gym, very very affordable, but when I'm done work for the day, I need to get home asap to pick kids up from daycare, because #1 I'm already feeling guilty about having to go back to work and #2 I can't afford the extra cash going out to my babysitter!
