I kind of feel like I’m in limbo again. Waiting for various things to come together. In the meantime, life trucks along and I slowly get better at time management and juggling priorities.

    You certainly have a lot on your plate right now, but you’ve been doing great managing it all and still scheduling in couple and leisure time.

    I’m not really sure what inspired me to write the limbo article but so many people seem to be in that state right now. For me, it’s hard not to be in limbo. I always seem to be fixated on that next thing around the corner.

    I had 1/2 the week off from work with my children, so it was absolutely fabulous having extra time this week for myself and my family.

    Thanks for including TotallyMoney’s Alex in your round up! Whilst that limbo phase can make you feel a little listless and floating, it’ll soon pass and you can feel like you can get on with things again. In the meantime, I think you need to pour yourself a cup of tea.
