In a vacuum

A time sucking vacuum that is. How do you find the time to blog when life is running you over mercilessly?

We changed things up a bit this year and are using BJU, Distance Learning Online, online being the operative word. From the hours of 9-2 pm everyday both of our computers are tied up with school. I barely have time to check my e-mail let alone blog hop or update my Facebook status with information such as- I am eating whipped cream straight out of the can. (Disgusting, I know.)

How do you make it all work?

I haven't. Now that I am back to work part time I seem to only have a chance to blog once in a while and visiting and commenting seems to take up most of my other blog time. I do miss it, but I have to say, since I do not give myself as much computer time, my house work seems to be getting done on a more regular basis. I don't know if that is a good thing or not.

Hi Laney, I don't have kids yet but I do understand being sucked for time. I personally dislike spending 8 hours a a job that I'm not fond of only to have an hour or so left to blog, eat or bathe!! Leaving my job and finding individual wealth will be my only way to more free time lol. Guess I better win the lottery. Good luck :-)

We don't use the computer for school, mostly. I suspect that will change as we introduce keyboard lessons, etc., but for now...noses in books.

I would love to tell you that freeing up the computer is the key to more writing time, but I no think so.

I dread dragging out the "seasons of life" thing - but there, I did it. I've come to accept that writing is important to me, but not as important as about nine other things. I've also loved learning about the friends who get that ...they are the friends who kind of do the same thing....and we pick up where we left off, pretty easily. I like to imagine you running, more than computering. Is that weird? I'll be here, either way.

My kids (15, 10, and 7) all go to bed at 8:30 pm. I stay up a bit longer to finish things up and work on the computer.

I try very hard to ignore the computer during the day so that after 8:30 pm IT'S MINE! ;)
