I'm currently on the mend from a sinus infection and bronchitis. I no longer roll my eyes when the doctor says "slow down" or "why did it take so long to get in?" or "cold medicine isn't meant to help with sinusitis". I know I know! Our house takes more than 3 people to keep it working. God knows it takes more than 3 people to keep me working.
This is what I've done to "make it happen":
1) Ordered groceries online for home delivery. Purchasing our family groceries is a family event. But this week...getting back from a trip, and having night things after work every day - made it impossible. We were supposed to go grocery shopping on Wednesday, then Thursday.... I just ordered the list, had it delivered on Friday afternoon. Done. Groceries for the weekend, and added bonus: ordered everything on the shopping list and not an item more.
2) Erica! She's taking care of the laundry and cleaning the house once a week. Just knowing that I don't need to stress about laundry, takes a huge weight off my shoulders.
3) Rely on people who've asked to be a part of the action! Did you ever noticed that when people say - "Call me, I want to help"...and you call them...they really do want to help!
There...I am back on my path for having it all. The key is - bringing the right people into your circle who want to have it all too!
