How to Find Balance Between Work and Life

Since we've been home, we have been trying to adjust to a normal groove.  The last few months, home or not, have been so crazy hectic that we never had a moment to think about the things that needed to be done outside of the checklist of tasks.  Now that we have a moment to write down the things we should tackle and scheduling time in with work, school, kids, activities, life, etc, it's hard to grasp the actual fact that we need to settle into a slightly normal routine again.

Think we are trying to slow down our pace and minds a little and it's been tough.  The one steady thing has been taking the boys out to skateboard.  They love learning now and all they want to do is skate afterschool.  In a week, they have learned a lot and the crying and falling have been less and less which is a good sign!  Being outdoors has been a nice breather.  Even if it's only an hour or two a day, it does remind us that we need to take a moment and enjoy time.  Now if we could only figure out how to make the time to just have a coffee date without it involving work! HAHAHAH

On the work end, it's been hard to get into the groove of figuring out what to tackle first and how to prioritize everything.  Seems like there are so many things on the list and we don't know where to start or WANT to start!  But things have to get done because life keeps moving regardless of wanting to have downtime.

In the meantime, we are working towards a daily routine and hopefully we can settle into one in the next week or so.  As a person who likes being crazy busy 24/7, it's so hard to get back to a slightly slower pace and not go insane! HAHAHAHA
