Struggling to Write

I love to blog though I always struggle when it comes time to actually sit down and write my own. I blog plenty at BlogMutt with hardly any problems. Well, the more I think about it, the less true I think that may be. I have been struggling to write most of the past few weeks – no matter what the subject or where.

I hate struggling.













It is really hard for me.

It feels like my family has been going through some changes. Neal switched jobs and he is home way more which is great. He had the evenings to work with the boys on some projects. Yet it is still an adjustment. I was still able to write in the mornings and afternoons when I had a chance, and even when he took the boys outside.

As we continued to adjust, he had to switch shifts. He leaves for work right when Cody is almost home. They miss each other by fifteen to twenty minutes. He comes home when we are all asleep (one in the morning or so). He gets to see Evan because Evan doesn’t have school every day and even when he does, he is home to spend some time with him before he has to go to work.

This has thrown me off completely. When I am used to getting up, getting the boys to school, exercise, and write, as well as take care of other chores, I feel like I am not getting anything done at all!

Now – the laundry and dishes are still done on a regular basis and I make food to feed everyone. Lunches (and dinners) are still packed but I don’t know when to write. I try to do some in the morning but it is the only time I get to spend with Neal. I try to work when they boys get to sleep but I haven’t felt so good lately so some nights, I put the boys to bed and curl in myself – the laptop entirely forgotten. There are days when I don’t even open it!

Ah – the life of a work at home mom! I hope that once this sickness leaves all of us and we figure out a schedule, it will be back to work as normal!
