I spent a wonderful, yet not stress free day at the pool with a friend and her kids. Since James is 90% potty trained during the day we spent at least half the time at the pool with him telling me he had to go to the bathroom. Run to bathroom, take off bathing suit, sit on toilet and put back on swimsuit. Lilly swam and swam and then swam some more. My friend and I talked and joked and talked more about my current career. I am truly hoping that it works out and that I start making money hand over fist and it is worth my time. If it doesn't work, then I will quit. Currently, I am spending more money to work than actually bringing home money. And since I am still commuting across the bridge four times a day, my stress level is through the roof. But I am not different than about a million working moms and dads around the world. I am not different than a million stay at home moms and dads around the world either. It is about finding a balance; in life and family. This is a task in itself. It is a lot of work, but for most of us, it ends up being worth it.

I came up with a business idea while sitting in traffic today and I think it is brilliant. I won't share it because I don't want any of my four readers to steal my idea. I must research, plan and discuss this with many. I will let you know if anything comes of it.

Happy Sunday!

You are so right - life with small busy children is the same the world over, I think. Throw in a house remodel, activities in one county a bridge away from your temporary housing - stress, for sure. But, it is temporary and it will end. That is the great news.
Stressful things do come to an end.
You are great - balancing a lot of things and doing it well!
