Time – can I haz some plz?

I’m not talking about more time in weeks, just, you know, an extra half hour (or even an hour) to myself a day. I can normally squeeze two hours out of a day to get my own thing done, but lately it seems to have compacted itself down to one hour which usually coincides with the time of day I need to eat at. Which cuts that hour down by a little bit.

Ug. I hate it. And I am so frustrated about it.

But the other stuff is important. Really important.

I’ve been spending most of my nights watching various DVD’s with hubby – something we’ve not done a lot of until recently. He tends to watch sports/play games and I tend to get some more writing done but I’ve noticed that we’re gravitating back towards just wanting to hang out, just the two of us at nights, while we still can. It’s natural. It’s important. I love spending time with him. I don’t love so much that it means I only have daytime hours to write in though.

Daytime hours in which Miss L is sleeping for less, and I seem to need to spend more time feeding…. gee if I don’t eat I start feeling unwell, so I can’t really skip out on the meals at the moment!

I’m hoping that magically, there will suddenly be more time over the next few weeks. I’ve got exciting writing stuff afoot. I want to burn through the words and get these ideas out of my head. I want to enjoy some fast and loose writing while I still can.

So I’m sending a message to the Universe. I need some more time. Just, lengthen the day a little, get my baby to sleep longer, put some more exciting sports matches on the TV, throw us some extra cash so hubby can buy a new game or something, or magically get the kids to play nicely together for a half hour after school without needing too much intervention/mediation. A couple of these things would do. I’d be totally cool with just an extra half hour and I PROMISE I’ll use it wisely.

  1. Can you not write while your hubby is watching a DVD? I sit beside my other half at night, with the laptop on my knee and I write while he watches TV. He is happy because I am beside him, and I am happy because I am doing something that not only makes me happy, but him too!

    1. lol normally he has the laptop and I actually want to watch the things we’re watching. Just perhaps not on a nightly basis πŸ˜‰ I might have to strike a deal with him!

  2. It’s unfortunate that you have so little time to do what you want to do – and I’m sure it doesn’t help that you’re usually so exhausted by that point you don’t want to do anything at all. I hope you can squeeze a bit more time out of the day, and that the baby doesn’t come TOO early.

    PS I like the new look, though you’re right, it’s weird to come here with the green banner.

    1. Very weird, not sure what I’ll do about that! The green doesn’t really go with the blue though… ah well.

      Thanks πŸ™‚ You are so right about being exhausted most of the time by the time I get some clear space to write! That’s just life though. Looking ahead, I can see that in a couple of years things will be very different, I just need to hang in there for now.
