Over the last few months, I've found life getting more and more in the way of my writing. Yeah, I've kept up with my blog posts. I've sort-of kept up with my book reviews.
But my books? My plans to do freelancing? Eh, not so much.

Yes, I realize I'm a mom.
Yes, I realize I'm a mom of a little boy who has some special needs. And a mom to a toddler. And a mom to a chocolate Labrador. And a wife to TMOTH.
But I still feel behind. Okay, I am behind.
Let's face it right now: life will try to get in the way of your best laid plans. I didn't think this time last year when I was newly pregnant with my son that my new home-away-from-home now would become the hospital. To date, my son has been admitted three times since November, the shortest stay being one night, the longest being seven days.
But in the midst of it all, I can still see my other priorities.
Sure, it would help if I got more cooperation from TMOTH. I'm not complaining; he's as frustrated by everything as I am.

I'm having to train myself to be more of a morning person so I can get things done. Dr. Pepper helps tremendously!
Have you had to make changes in your own life to get done your goals? How has that worked for you? Do you regret it, or are you resigned to the fact that this is how it will be for a while?
