Have you ever felt crunched for time? Of course you have. Who among us hasn't known the mania that comes along with having too much to do and too little time to do it? Maybe the super-rich or the super lazy, but I'm betting neither of those apply to you, oh faithful readers, so read on.

It's all in the timing

So, it's been something of a slog cramming life back into something that resembles normal, at least if someone isn't looking too closely at it. Yes, I'm still working. Yes, I'm still taking care of the kids. And yes, I'm still maintaining my household. Which is to say, I haven't been fired, the kids are still breathing and I haven't burned down any major portions of my residence.

How do I do it? Well, honestly for the first few months it was with the bare goodwill of some very patient souls. But since then I've been leaning heavily on technology to replace the parts of my brain I've lost to sleepless nights and full days.

I used to feel bad that I was getting so overwhelmed with things. Then it hit me - I'm no longer just planning my day. I'm the de facto secretary for three new human beings, and additionally I have to have a complete knowledge of my husband's work/home schedule and know if he has anything scheduled outside of that (like a dentist or doctor appointment). I expect a card on Administrative Assistant's Day.
