Backed Up

After I had kids, my digestive system changed. Meaning regularity couldn’t be counted upon, and no amount of fruits or vegetables helped. But I wasn’t ready for Metamucil, so I decided to take magnesium instead. It seems to work, and for now, I can’t complain. I’m no longer backed up when it comes to my digestive system.

The same can’t be said for other areas of my life, namely, my projects. And by projects, I mean editing, writing, and blogging. Back in June, this new site debuted, and since then, I’ve found little time to share my thoughts on the blog. That makes me sad, but at the same time, my editing, my book, and my kids—especially the kids!—take up time. And exercising? Well that’s important, too, because it’s keeping me sane in these quarantine days.

But life has taught me that I need to adjust, and I’ve finally decided that this “back up” needs to be fixed. I don’t know exactly how I’m going to find more time in a day that only has twenty-four hours, but I suspect it will have something to do with priorities. Making a list of those and going from there will likely be the first step. And once I have that in place, the second step will be all that much easier. Right?
