When I focus on my sewing I get orders done and shipped and clients are happy....but my home is a horrible mess and my heart is heavy as soon as I exit my studio. After a day or two of this I get so fed up that I spend all day cleaning, and the next catching up laundry, and the next caring for my kids and their needs, and so on. The end result is that I am now 5 days behind on orders and am dreaming of patterns and ripped seams in my sleep (Not to mention the sleep lost while nursing my squishy faced Stu-Bert and playing with all his little bits and pieces. Yes, I am aware this is not "recommended" parenting, nights are for sleep, BUT he is my last and so I feel the need to rebel....sue me LOL).
Now if you have been paying attention you may have noticed that NOWHERE in here is there a mention of showers, quiet time with a book, a walk to see my family, or a cup of joe with my kick arse Mom. Quite frankly I have decided this is BS. I am the freaking CEO, I deserve perks...and basic needs to be met. So with that in mind I have decided to do a week long series about balance. Balance in family, home, work, spirit, self; Balance in all things! I will be back soon with the first segment, right now myself and I need to sing in the shower...probably off key....and definitely Maroon 5 ;)
