This “semester” I joined MOPS for the first time. I take my three year old while my mother-in-law watchs my one year old, who is having nap time. This past week I was working in Mopettes (nursery/child care) with another gal who I had never met before. We were chatting about sleep schedules and mentioned that I try to get to bed around 9pm every night. She asked “how do you get it all done” if I go to bed so early? I shrugged my shoulders and said somehow it gets done.
That question stuck with me. How do I get it all done? Is it my personality? I like to be organized. I like to have projects because they help me make better use of my time. I am morning person and with the help of my girls I am awake by6 every morning.
Later I started thinking, what is “all”? Then it struck me. When you live a simpler life it is not so hard to get it “all” done! I’m not trying to run in a million different directions all day. Some days are busier than others but I try to limit myself to only a few important tasks each day. The rest of the day is spent enjoying life and family.
