I'm going to be starting next week working second shift. DH works first shift in another town. I have all daycare, meal, and household chore schedules figured out. Here's the problem: unless I don't sleep ever or don't see my family at all I have no time for my gazillion hobbies. I'm not willing to give them up because I'm still deciding whether or not I want to start a business with some of them and others are mostly DYI projects which saves us a ton of money and is my "me time".
Saturdays are reserved for family time and grocery shopping but I can manage a couple hours there. Sundays is prep work, baking, and cooking for the week ahead. I don't think I'll have any time on Sunday. I need a lot of me time and for the last 20something years of my life I've had tons of it but now I'm losing it all to housework, prep work, and actual work. I also despise schedules and feel very constricted by them. Honestly a schedule feels like a prison cell to me. :(
How do you do it without going crazy?
