Don't believe me?
Confession #1: I had no idea last Sunday was the Superbowl until one of my CPs mentioned it in an email WHILE THE GAME WAS ALREADY ON!!!!!!! No really. I'm THAT out of touch right now.
Confession #2: Most days I don't eat breakfast. Or lunch. It's a combination of factors really. I have no time to make food--which is good because there's generally no food in my house because I have no time to go to the grocery store. And stress takes my appetite away, so I rarely even get hungry enough to remind me that I haven't eaten.
Confession #3: I've had to pay almost all my bills by credit card the last couple months--not because I didn't have the money in my account, but because I forgot to pay them until the day they were due and had to race to the website to pay by credit card to avoid a ton of late fees.
Confession #4: My 5 year anniversary was in July. For my present, my husband was supposed to upgrade to my ring to a new setting--but since I haven't had time to go to the jeweler to pick out what I want, I still haven't gotten it. Yes that's right--writing has kept me away from getting DIAMONDS. And at the rate things are going, it's not looking like I'll have time to get it done before my next anniversary swings around. *sighs*
Confession #5: I only have a handful of things I can wear in my closet, and this is because most of my clothes: don't fit because I've lost weight, need to be dropped off at the tailor or the dry cleaner, or need to be ironed. So I kinda wear the same things over and over--and they're not even all that cute. But I have no time to shop, iron, or go to the tailor so...fashion icon I am not.
I could keep going, but I don't want to sound like I'm whining--because I'm not! No really, I can't complain because here's the worst confession of them all:
I only work part time, I have no kids, and my husband is actually a really big help around the house.
And I know for a fact that most of you guys have WAY fuller plates than that: full time jobs and kids and all kinds of other responsibilities I can't even imagine. So here's the real reason for this post:
I WANT TO KNOW HOW YOU GUYS DO IT!
How do you you find time to eat and sleep and have suitable clothes to wear and work and take care of your families and keep up with the world AND write? Some of you even sound like you have lives. So...how do you do it??????? Do you get more hours in the day than I do?
Any tips or secrets you have, I'd love to hear--because I'm stumped!
And...I'm about to collapse onto my keyboard, so I think it's time to get my four hours of sleep before I start another busy day of work and editing tomorrow. Ah, the glamorous life I lead...
