On Balancing Working and Caregiving

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to participate in a video chat with Caregiving.com about working and caregiving.

First of all, let me say this.

Someone, I think it was Sib, who I like to call my big quad-wife sister, said that this life that we lead really can't be "balanced."

It has to be "juggled."

Which I think is a much more accurate term, because something is always up in the air! And that thing that's in the air - whether it's work, or home, or caregiving, is at one point or another, in the air - a.k.a. out of your control.

I am, by nature, a workaholic. I think that makes my juggle more of a struggle than it needs to be.

I find that organization and systems are KEY.

Here's the video of the chat, if you'd like to see it.
You can read more about everyone who participated in it, here. Be advised we did have some technical challenges at the beginning, but we ultimately pulled it together.



In my advice, I mentioned two online services that help me juggle.

One is Stitch Fix.

The other is The Fresh 20.
