Calling Superwoman

I need help for Superwoman! Seriously! I know that there so many “super women” out there who have it figured out and I need to know how you do it!

How do you work 40+ hours a week, take care of your family, keep your house in order, workout and take care of your body, have quality time with your husband, quality time for your friends, quality time for yourself, and keep your sanity?  I just can not figure it out. 

After working all day long with 210 high school students I am exhausted! For those of you who did not know I teach Spanish at Cooper high school. When I get home all I want to do is lay on the coach and hide! But a long list of things to do awaits me. I need and want to cook dinner for my husband, workout, get house work done, talk to friends,  grade papers, edit pictures,check blogs…The list goes on and on. Not to mention all the things I need to do to promote and run this young photography business of mine. By Friday night I am so spent that I am usually in bed by 10 and sadly half the stuff on my list isn’t even done because I have given up.

So I need balance. I need to know how you guys do it. How do you prioritize your life so that you don’t feel totally expended at the end of the week. Please share your thoughts with me. I really need to learn how to do this so that I can be joyful and not so negative throughout my day.

Thanks so much for sharing!

lauren - Dear Renee – If you find the answer please share with me! I know exactly how you feel. yesterday I came home from school and napped until Chip got home, went to the grocery store because he was motivated to go, and then went back to bed by nine o’clock. I feel great this morning, so hopefully today will be a better day. If i figure out how to not plant myself on the couch this afternoon, I will let you know. Some people say that right after school you should do everything on your list that occurs outside the house and then the couch wont call to you. But I have to take Stella out right after work and she is cuddly and does not help the napping situation :) Hope all is well in Texas! We definitely need to plan a visit down there!

Lauren Z - I think that one of the phrases that the Lord gave me for you a week ago fits into this question. We can talk this weekend. :)

Rachel Leslie - Renee… you are so right. How do these woman do it. I am not sure anyone really does. It seems as if life passes us by and we are lucky if we get a moment in every now and then that makes us stop and appreciate it all. I just figure that as long as I continue to love people and they continue to love me, I don’t have to get everything done on my ever growing list of chores… duties and responsibilities.The emphasis, “just doing the best I can.” I guess I look at it like this… we are lucky to have all of these things to do… I can’t imagine to wonder what to do with the next minute of my day.

Keep up the great work… your work is inspiring and I feel like I stay connected by checking out your blog every now and then.

It is ok to go to bed at 10 pm on a Friday. Why not? Saturday morning comes early… and a new days begins.

Just LOVE life… and don’t look for answers. You are doing everything right! As right as you can… none of us are superwoman. We are just lucky!

Love you!
