I’ve been a little scarce on this blog recently.  I haven’t really had time to blog… and read blogs (you should see my poor reader)… and I haven’t quite got the blogging groove at the moment.  But time is a big issue, and in the last 2 days I’ve been more than rapped over the knuckles for it… and need to get it off my chest (while my Mac is trying to sort images out for me on it’s own and I have 5 minutes to spare while I wait)

A few months ago, Marcia and I agreed to do a bit of a talent swap.  I’ll do a few photoshoots for her in exchange for a few life/success coaching sessions (btw look at her portrait photo on her blog 😉 ).  Last night was the first session.  She asked me LOADS of questions and I’m left with homework.

One of the things I had to do was run through a typical day.  One thing that struck me as I was doing it, is that we’re pretty organised for my photography thing, and Lance helps me A LOT!! But it’s very clear that I’m busy and I hardly have time for myself.  In fact, the only downtime I really get is in the evenings, on the way home from work, when I have some tea with my mom when I get there to pick the kids up.    Oh, other than the time I spend alone in the traffic.

But we really didn’t dwell on that bit last night, there was too much else to discuss.

This morning, however, I had my regular gynae appointment, and I spent quite a while updating her on my hair loss issue and the endochrinologist stuff I’ve been through in the last year and a bit.  She put the spanner in my works.

She asked me when I have time in the day for myself.  She asked me when I spend quality time with Lance.  She asked me when I exercise.

I had to answer that I don’t do any of the above.  Apart from running around when I do photoshoots

There aren’t enough hours in the day.  Seriously.

It needs to change.  Something has to change.
