mum's thoughts, learning

I wrote early this year that one of my major goals for 2012 is to learn a new skill. It may be in the form of studying how to drive, or learning how to speak a third language, or finally learning how to cook, or drive or swim, or studying all about Quickbooks San Antonio, maybe! Alas, fast forward to 7 months later, I have not established a concrete goal of how to realize any of those goals I have set out to accomplish at the start of the year. I guess you can say that I have been busy. Which, for a full-time mum of a toddler can really be quite an understatement. Looking after a boisterous almost-three-year-old can really be quite a handful, add the tons of house chores + a flourishing online racket into the mix, + I hardly have enough time for anything else.  I’ve only gone as far as planning to wash my yoga mat to prepare it for action + getting hold of a great French-learning book {which I managed to browse on several occasions!}. The cliché too many things to do, too little time is a mantra that keeps running in circles inside my head!

I know I have been lagging on my goals with only a few more months left in the year, + I really keep on wondering how other mums or those Adams QB Austin Quickbooks Experts manage their time perfectly. That I have to master first, I guess, before I venture into achieving other goals that I set out for myself. Oh well, either that or I find a very capable house help to do away all my biddings so I focus on any of my tasks. At any rate, I am just glad I have found an able aid, in the form of my new fully-automatic washing  machine, to help me save time + energy so that I can focus more on my other priorities! ;)

Anyway what new skills you would like to learn? I’d love to read all about it in a comment below! ;)
