I was reading THIS about Kelly Ripa and thought to myself that I am absolutely amazed at what this woman can handle! I think if you have three jobs, three kids and a hubby, SOMETHING must give, right?
How does she manage all of this stuff? Who cleans her house? Laundry? How about exercise? Reading? Sleep? Hobbies? How much does her personal assistant handle? Does she have secretary? What does she turn over to somebody else so she can do these things? And how did she decide which things to do and which things to turn over? And how did she find reliable help to make this kind of life-style possible?
I know in my life, my ONE job, my ONE child and my hubby can be a lot to dish up on one plate. To be sure multiple kids are sometimes easier than one because they entertain each other.
Most likely at least one of her jobs gets her a daily hair-dresser, make-up artist, personal assistant, secretary or personal trainer, etc. That isn't a priviledge I've currently got.
One thing I know that I have to do is handle all or most of the daily details myself…I wonder what details she handles and what she leaves to other people. Does she make the dental appointments? Decide which brand of toilet bowl cleaner is best?
Regardless, the woman must have mad skills, strategies and processes to get all this rolling smoothly through her life.
I’d love to see her calendar. Mine has all these pencil marks and eraser lines…it changes every morning depending upon what happens in my daily meeting. I’m struggling to menu plan and think ahead enough to plan the closet and fridge organization.
Women are busy in a way that they have never been. We are relied upon to be the keepers of the family stuff, regardless of whether we work outside the home.
So I wonder…how do YOU do it? What do you manage and how do you do it?
