I think that I have finally figured it out.

I am just trying to do too much, make that way too much.  I have a time for chores in the morning, but if I do my morning chores right it takes three times as long as I have scheduled.  No wonder I feel like I can never get everything done.  I think that it is back to the drawing board for my schedule.

The thing is that I didn’t realize this.  I really thought that I could do it in the time allowed, and when I didn’t I figured that I was just wasting too much time on something else.  When I broke it all down by jobs, I realized that I had scheduled two and a half hours of work in an hour’s time, and I need to be helping kids during that hour.  Of course it doesn’t work, why did I ever think that it would.  Now that I realize it, I can figure out what I want to drop, instead of just dropping the least urgent (which is never the least important) thing.  Maybe some things like vacuuming and mopping can start getting done again!

    Earth to Tracy, Earth to Tracy…did you receive transmission?? “I think she finally got that message we sent…it must have been lost in cyber space.”

    I know what you mean. Good luck on reworking the schedule…I too struggle with being realistic…

    Well, the main point came through! Balance. Do you thing that if I bought a balance scale for Christmas it would help?

    I think maybe it is more like juggling than balancing though. With juggling it is easy to keep throwing in more balls and you can even keep them going for a while and then… they start to fall.
