- A balance between junk food and healthy food.
- A balance between the kids having free time and having organized activities.
- A balance between "I want that purse" and "But college is expensive"...stupid responsible saving
- A balance between "it's not worth the fight" with my kids and "I'll fight this all day long with you"
The weird thing is that my family and I seem to need clean clothes, dishes to eat off of, non-sticky floors, and so on. Another weird thing is that I NEED to write! So, I make up schedules. I love schedules. I love grabbing an index card and writing it out like, "9-9:15 Dishes, 9:15-9:30 Laundry, 9:30-10:30 Real Job stuff, 10:30-11 Write". Of course, inevitably the air conditioner stops working at 9:07 and the whole day is shot, but I tried!!
