Stretched too thin?

I started a great new job about two weeks ago…and I love it! It’s busy and can be stressful, but the people are great (so far) and I am very happy to be back working.

The downside though, is that with work, commute, fatigue, volunteer work, etc, etc…where does my writing fit in?

I spent all of last weekend half recovering by knitting and gaming…or good ol vegging on the couch; but nery a word was written nor edited.

My social media was all updated, blog, you name it…but the words weren’t there. 😦 I was simply too tired/sore to hunch over a computer again after having spent the last 40 hours at work, or playing a ‘just for grins’ game and hone my parenting skills of simulated children.

Am I stretched too thin? Or just lazy?

Parts of both, but I know a lot of my fellow lovers of the written word are stretched tooooo thin! Parenting, school, work, life, all sorts of things get in the way.

This weekend I resolve to get back to work on it. I want to. I need to get my words down. Story ideas are cropping up during staff meetings…what a time for an idea, huh? omg. That’s the worst! Yet, plot bunnies hop into our minds any time they darn well please, don’t they? 🙂

I am getting settled back into working life again at last and adore my weekends again. My to-do list will be tackled and sprinkle in some edits and ‘me’ time whilst hubby and kitty do other things, like nap. LOL

How do you keep yourself from being stretched too thin?
