Here’s a funny thing, when I worked I was more organized. I was a working Mom for over 6 years and have been a stay at home Mom for only 10 months. Now that I’m home and have more time I’m less organized and more last minute. It drives me nuts. When I worked I had no choice, I had to be organized or everything fell apart. Now, if I’m not organized I’ll just fix it tomorrow, ‘cause I’ll be here. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I’m not busy now, it’s just a less structured busy, so if I need to go to the store I put the kids in the car and we go to the store. When I worked that wouldn’t happen. If I forgot something at the store I was stuck until after work or the weekend. Couldn’t be late to pick up the kids.
Anyway, I find it totally ironic, because it would seem that if I have time I should be even more organized because I have the time. But it seems to be exactly the opposite. I’m less organized because I don’t have the pressure of lack of time. Wow, I don’t think it makes sense, but it’s totally true. Or does it make sense?
