How is it that when I work from home, I get little done? When I have all three children at school, and those hours are mine, I laibour slowly. Dull chores are always put off until tomorrow and I procrastinate over everything?
And how is it when I am studying full time, we are all eating better and having more fun and things get done more efficiently?
I do not get it.
I am glad though.
I once worked for a wise gentleman - he owned a beautiful hotel that I worked in as a teen - he told me that the more we do, the busier we get, the more energy we get. The momentum gathers, and the more we do, the more we want to do.
I think he was right.
I was terrified that I would not cope with house, kids, husband and work as well as study. Scared and nervous for myself and for the kids. The state of the house and the laundry has a direct and usually detrimental impact upon my mood. I was nervous.
But instead it is all working. Working well. Time seems to expand to allow us to get it all done. We are all happy. I am happy.
So far, so good...
