Re-evaluating My WAHM Life

I was blog hopping earlier today and stumbled upon WAHMderful Life’s Thoughtful Thursday: Are you enjoying your life? It got me thinking because everything I am experiencing now were mentioned there: getting by with four hours of sleep, putting up with microwave meals, placing the kids in front of the TV so I can work and not being able to spend time with the husband.

I enjoy being a WAHM because I am able to provide extra income for the family without having to work away from home. I enjoy it because of the fulfillment I feel every time I finish successful projects. But then the problem is, in the attempt to do it all, I think I have lost sight of why I even became a WAHM: to spend more time with my family. I don’t just want to physically be there, I want to really be there.

As written in the post, something has to change. I need to figure out how I can manage my time better — Do I need to let go of some gigs? Do I need to review my family life/work life/social life schedule? Or are we living a lifestyle that is beyond what we can afford, hence forcing me to work more?
