I'm feeling very inadequate lately....

Monday through Friday, like most people, feel like I am running at 110 miles an hour....up at 7 am get 3 kids ready to school, drop off kids, get to work between 9-9:30 work till 6:30. Home at 7 pm dinner, homework, bath for kids, end of day things...waste time on my computer, go to bed too late and do it all again for the next 4 days. By the time the weekend rolls around, I am exhausted.

I sleep in on the weekends and clean up the clutter, but beside that, I am basically a lump all weekend unless we have to get the kids some place. The reason I feel inadequate is I know a lot of families are a lot more active with their kids, but I am so unmotivated to do much of anything besides veg out with the family. Don't get me wrong, I love it, but I feel guilty because I am probably doing my kids a huge disservice. I guess the question I want to put out there is where do you all get the energy to continue going, going, going into the weekend?!!!!

I know for me in the winter my husband and I do less activities and more vegging on the couch because it is a pain in the butt to get everyone bundled up and go out into the cold and snow. In the summer though we do alot more.

You know my secret..it is called BJØRN... but if you can't get ahold of your own Bjørn, I would advise BABY STEPS. I used to hate to be forced to do stuff on the weekends... now I go a little stir crazy if I don't get out.
Another BIG help is our cleaning lady... I used to spend all weekend catching up... now I have a lady who comes every 2 weeks to do the floors/bathrooms etc. AMAZING how much more time I have.
Just get out & DO IT... take the kids to the park & try to get some good shots...(that always gets me out.)
