Tips and Tricks Thursday: Fitting it all in...

When your a mom of 3 girls all school age its is a full time job...
add a marriage... full time job #2 is on your resume...
Then you add your full time retail job... we are up to 3 
Mix in part time student and freelance photographer you add two part times and make the count to 4 full times...
Then adding your two small buisnesses your building...well we are up to 6 full time jobs in a 20 hour period...
I only count 20 because I sleep for 4...

You may think I am totally insaine to take this all on but I honestly love it. 

I also did not count my blogs, house cleaning, errands, appointments and everything else required to function..

Time management is my BFF. 
I also am addicted to To Do Lists, my planner, and the goal of reaching a better life for me and the family. 

Since I work  over night my days start usually around noon... 
now I won't lie there are days where I get called to wake up at 2:45 because I over slept but its rare...

When I get home I start on the blog or on homeowrk until 8-8:30 then its off to dream land.
 Since the paper is as needed bases I squeeze it in as needed.

When I wake up its finishing up homework and cleaning up the house until 3 when I go get the kiddies from school.

Then its time for homework for them and I start working on laundry dinner and utilize my smart phone to do stuff for the biz...

Then I sneak in time with the hubby and get the girls ready for school the next day. Around 8:30 I get ready to go to work until 7am...

On my off days its a race to get caught up in everything I didnt get accomplished that week or try to get a head start on the next week.
Since I work on weekends I sleep a few hours during the day.
The hubby and kids take this time to do a few chores around the house to help lessen the load on mommy... I ♡ it!

Its nice to wake up and not see a million things to be cleaned.

Since we are only 3 months into this new routine I am still working on making this schedule work for us. I still try different sleep schedules to see what benifits us the best as a family and things I can do to help us all pitch in to help each other.

After a thanksgiving break I wilk be introducing chores for the kids and ways for them to earn treats for helping.

Stay tuned on how that pans out...
