     Is it impossible for a mom to find the right balance between work & home?  I feel like I am constantly struggling to find the right mix of work, home, being an employer, being a mom, and being a wife.  First off, let me say that I am extremely blessed by being my own boss.  I can come and go throughout the day, but there are lots (and LOTS) of days that we have several employees call in sick and I am needed at work all day.  Plus, things just don't run as smoothly when Clint and I aren't there as they do when we are.  So, although I am my own boss, I still have a certain amount of time I must be at work.  I feel guilty when I leave work early enough to come home and cook a decent supper.  When I work until I feel free to come home, Eli is tired and fussy and hungry before I get supper cooked.  I want to be a good mom, and a good wife, and take care of my family and my house!  The question is HOW?  How do I balance everything that needs to be done every day?  I don't want to end up feeding my child something quick every night because he is crying before the meal is cooked.  I don't want him to fill up on milk instead of real food while he's waiting.  I hate being in a cooking rut.  I feel like I cook the same things over and over because they are the old standby recipes that are easy.  Clint and Eli never complain, but I know they have to get tired of eating the same things.  Tacos, Spaghetti, Baked chicken, blah, blah, blah.  Help!  I'm in a rut and I don't know how to find the balance I'm looking for to get out of it!!
