Finding a happy medium

By Katharine Swan On Friday, May 09, 2008 At 2:19 PM

The weather is getting warmer now — and staying warmer. No more freak snowstorms between warm spells! But along with this warm weather comes a very tempting set of distractions.

I've always had my heaviest workload during the summer, so not having a chance to enjoy the warm weather has pretty much been the norm for me. This year promises to be different, since I now have horsey responsibilities to make sure I get outside regularly. Unfortunately, this also means that I have the unique challenge of trying to balance horse time with work time.

Yesterday is a good example of why this will be such a challenge: I had a horseback riding lesson at 12:30, which turned into an entire afternoon at the barn. As a result, I didn't get as much work done as I'd hoped. It's like the clock stops for me when I'm at the barn, even though it goes on ticking everywhere else. I can spend hours there and be perfectly content.

As a reminder for me and a tip for you, I am going to write my next blog post on how to find a proper balance between work time and play time.

It's probably a case of the blind leading the blind, but I'll give it my best shot! ;o)

The post will be live this evening -- hooray for Blogger's new future dating feature!
