#MicroblogMondays: deadline stress

My apologies for not returning any comments on last week's #microblogmonday. I've been under deadline stress and will be until Friday.

Combining working (from home) with the kids' school schedule is a little daunting at times. Last year I could still tell M. Gourmand's sitter that I would pick him up later and ask another mom to pick M. Sensible up from school and take him to the park. Now M. Gourmand is also in (pre)school, but just mornings. So I have two hours to work in the morning when he's at school, two hours during nap time, and if I have any energy left 1-2 hours in the evening when the kids are in bed.

More thoughtful blog posting and commenting to come next week, hopefully.

#MicroblogMondays is another great idea from Mel at Stirrup Queens. Join in!

From the positive side: you have work! with a deadline so it must be important! and and the other times the boys get your full attention again.
Looking forward to you having time to post, micro or not.

Life is as it is. And we do our best. Onwards and upwards!

Yes, life ebbs and flows. You're smart to recognize you can't do it all. Glad you're managing to post, though!

Good luck to good intentions. Work does get overwhelming at times but things have a way of working out.

Hang in there! That does sound like so much, with little time for yourself. Take care and I hope that you get some downtime soon.

Aaaah, I am well familiar with that work schedule as a fellow work-from-homer.

Deadline stress - it still makes my stomach knot up just thinking about it. Good luck to you on your project. I hope you can find a way to de-stress a couple hours a day. (((Hugs)))
