I don’t believe I can have it all. I don’t mean that in a negative way, just realistically.
As a single Mom, (taking romantic love out of the equation) looking only at the triage of home, work, and child, I can only keep two happy. Most of the time, it’s my home that is the neglected of the three, covered in secret dust bunnies, holding sad crusty dishes in her sink. I’ve tried the house cleaner route, but it’s too much of a luxury right now and honestly: my son is number one, my work is number two, and the smudges on the bathroom mirror will just have to wait.
I have found, though, that there are a few small things I can do that allow me to have maximum bike-riding time with Nolan, completing my work and maybe making a bed or two. Here are my best 5 timesavers.
