I'm a Mom, my two little people are almost 3 and 14.5 mos. I work part time (3 days/week) and manage virtually all the household affairs, due to my husband working most weeks either far too much or completely out of town. Thank goodness my mother is here in town, I'm sure I would go insane withoutt her.
However, I feel like I NEVER get anything DONE. My list of unfinished projects (and piles of them) abounds and I was always so organized and with-it before children arrived. I'm 38 years old, and fairly successful at work, but I feel like chaos is ruling my life at the moment, and it is getting to me. I bought Getting Things Done because it sounded like a great solution. I am on Chapter 6, and already have spent the first part of the book nodding my head every two sentences. But, I am finding it hard to devote the kind of time indicated to really getting organized, plus it seems more aimed at 'just work', as oppposed to the reality of messy life with children.
So, I'd like to correspond with any others out there who are in a similar situation. Oh yeah, my office is in my home, as I work remotely doing technical support for a software company. The children are actually gone from my home to daycare during work hours (imagine being on the phone with a customer when your 14 month old is repeating mo-my-mo-my in your ear)!
Let me know if you are interested.
