How do you do it all?

I work full time and have two kids (three if you count my husband) and a dog. I know I am not the only working mother out there. My question is how does everyone else get everything done? Am I just not organized? I am getting so frustrated. There is so much I want to do and the only time I really get anything done is when we have our monthly make & take meetings. After our meeting is over my project usually just sets there until the next month.

If I work on Halloween projects the laundry doesn't get done or the house doesn't get cleaned. If I keep up with housework the Halloween props never get finished. It is a vicious cycle! Birthday parties to attend or to give, school functions, sports, grocery shopping all get in the way of Halloweening.

I see so many great props being created and I know I could create a lot of nice props...I just need to find the time! I actually thought I had great time management skills until I really started getting into Halloween as a hobby!

Sounds like it's time for your husband to clean around the house and do laundry..or he needs to help you with the Halloween projects. :D

Do you live in a museum? If not, then take a couple of days off from cleaning. Make big meals, then reheat leftovers the next couple days. Buy more clothes so you don't have to do laundry as often. The bottom line is to plan when you want to work on your Halloween projects and schedule everything else around that.
