I’m unbalanced!


We talked about balance in my teacher credential program.  We talked about balance in my Administrative Credential program.  And it still eludes me.

As a math coach, I think of balance as rigor in a math program: rigor is a balance between conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application.  Now that seems attainable!!

But in my life, I can’t seem to balance work and all the rest.  ‘All the rest’ includes clothes shopping, doing nothing, going out with friends, partying, reading for pleasure, working in the yard, …

My family commitments are not as great as they were when the kids (now adults) were young.  Then the non-work tasks at home were essential.  Now it’s just my husband and I, and he works long hours.  Oh, and I do visit my mom in Canada.

But when I look on FaceBook, I see that I’m lagging behind – not as many dinners out, not so many vacations, I don’t go to many baseball games, my birthday is a very low key event, I don’t have group pictures with my friends, not as many people over for dinner, …  And that doesn’t really bother me, after all, I’m not trying to keep up with the FBers.

But tomorrow is Memorial Day and I’ll be working at home all day, finishing content maps for 4th and 5th grade CCSSM.  It’s not a task I enjoy so it takes me longer than it should. 

So I’m asking for advice – How do you keep your life in balance?
