Dreams To Do

Just Write {Inner Battle}

Almost every evening I find myself in the same predicament. I fall back on my couch, throwing my feet up on it, and I exhale. I let the pillowy goodness suck me in and I let my body relax for a split second.

And then the guilt sets in.

I should be folding laundry or starting another load. And I really should pick up those toys on the floor right now. Oh man, what the heck am I going to blog about tomorrow? Do I really have to work out? When will I ever catch up on my DVR? Not to mention my dream-doing…

The battle in my head continues for a while before I actually do anything. Usually TV time with the hubby wins. And that only lasts so long before it feels like my eyelids are holding up a ton of bricks and I swear I can hear our bed calling my name.

I trudge up the stairs, dreading my face-washing/tooth-brushing bedtime routine, and the guilt follows me. Laundry. Toys. Blog. Dreams. In the end, sleep always wins.

As mothers/wives/employees/housekeepers, how do we find time to do it all and still find time for ourselves?

I’d be one heck of a rich woman if I could figure that one out.

  • I don’t know how to keep up with all of it either…I usually can’t sit down at the TV or near a bed once I put Sky to bed or i’m toast for the night – I have to stay up and moving around. That’s usually when I do all my blog stuff. 🙂

  • That’s my problem! I let myself relax for a minute and it ruins me for the rest of the night!

    i do the same exact thing. and i have a horrible time not feeling guilty about it… especially when i go to bed and find the laundry folded  or dishes done the next day, which means my hubby did it while i was dreaming. literally the man of my dreams.. haha.. i cant manage the amount of things that i have to, want to, and could be doing though.. its impossible.. so i force myself to live in the moment and not worry about these things… =)

     Yep, I have the same problem, too. That guilt is a bitch, for real.

  • Oh my gosh Julie, my hubby does that, too! And I do love it, but at the same time it drives me crazy because it makes me feel so bad.
