Hi! I have a full time job, two pets and am going to college. Work can be pretty hectic at this time of year and sometimes I have to stay late. For me its about scheduling...and frankly...disciplining myself to stick to the schedule.
So you are not at odds with what is important to you, I suggest perhaps writing a list of values and then create a schedule based on those.
One of the things I determined was that sometimes I can't do everything, and since I'm single I can't delegate it. Are there other family members in your home? Perhaps creating a schedule of chores for everyone to help (even the smallest child can do a little thing)? Fly Lady has a website that helps you with household schedules. You might want to visit that website.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to juggle everything? I work outside the home, and it seems I never can get my work done. I pushed myself quite a bit tonight, but it just wore me out. I feel better now. How do you do it? I try to do it on the weekends, but more work comes up on the weekends outside the house. I want to get it done, but I just don't know how to do it!
