Today I took advantage of using some better time management skills. I didn't stay late after school today, and I didn't pick up Andy from the babysitter at the first opportunity. Instead, I changed into my workout clothes and set off for the gym. "Gym" doesn't exactly do this place justice. This is where we go, and I really like it, but I sure haven't been getting there as often as I would like. Or as often as I need to. But today, I was determined for it to be different.
In the end, I had a nice little workout and still made it home in time to have dinner with everyone and some playtime with Andy before putting him to bed.
More importantly, now I know that it is possible for me to make this work. And that must be worth something. My next step is for me to be comfortable leaving Andy in the child care center at the gym. It's funny, we've paid for Andy to be on the membership with us so that we can leave him at the child care center for months, OK, almost a year, but I have been too chicken to actually leave him there. Any tips?
