Welcome, I’m Michelle Carnes, and I’m trying to find balance.
I’m an average full-time working mom with six children who are split between two houses. I have two girls and four boys, ranging in ages from 19 to 6.
Trying to find time to do anything is challenging. I LOVE to read, but I have a very large quantity of books sitting next to my bed…that never get read.
I’m so excited to be starting this blog for working moms. I’ve wanted to do this for a really long time, but I didn’t think I had the time nor energy. I dreamt of being a part of a community of women that could help and learn from each other.
I ALWAYS have mom guilt. If I am at work, I felt guilty for not being with my family. If I am at home, I feel guilty for not thinking about work. If I take my youngest two children (who live with me) to a fun event, I feel guilty for not being able to have all of my children with me. It’s a constant in my life.
I need to find balance. i want to feel happy and fulfilled. I want to achieve great things and help other moms. How do you do that when you are spending all of your time trying to just get through the day?
My goal is to stop making excuses. I want to accept the things that I can’t change, and work hard to improve the things I can.
I want to live a life worth blogging about…and I want to inspire other moms to work on finding balance.
Join me on my search to becoming a supermom.
