How Good are you at Juggling?
Well the weekend has arrived again and what a week it’s been. I’ve signed up to rent a house over the other side of the country (Which is sort of what my future fear post was all about), I also passed another accounting exam leaving just 2 left to pass and I’ll finally have that other string to my bow and all this whilst doing my best to optimize my blog, run a business and be a dad! The madness has meant that I’ve been a little quiet when it comes to commenting on and sharing other blog posts this week, I hope you can forgive me.
I feel like things have really taken their toll this week and it’s got me to wondering , What do all the other part time bloggers out there have going on in their lives and are they better at juggling things than I am or do they also feel the heat at times?
I’m usually the sort of person who becomes very obsessive about whatever I’m doing, giving it my all. So when I hit these points where I seem to be juggling 50 different things and just scraping by on most of them I really don’t like it but then I guess life is just like that sometimes. Hopefully once the impending move is out of the way (3 weeks to go) and the remaining exams are over things can return to some kind of normality, if there is such a thing!
Anyway enough winging from me. This week has been financial literacy week in the Blogosphere so you might find that a few of my top blog post picks are on a similar theme, that’s only because it’s such an important issue though. I grew up in a single parent family and my Mum did a really great job of showing us how to manage money. There have been times in my life where I seemed to stray from what she taught me, but that’s youth for you. As a dad of two young boys I really hope they look back on their youth and feel that we as parents did a good job of showing them how to handle their money and weeks like Financial literacy week are great for reminding you of the huge responsibility that rests on your shoulders.
Finally I don’t think Mrs.B would be too happy if I didn’t mention that we’ll be celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary this weekend, doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun!
