Your Daily Pie

No I don't feel guilty. 
Not even a tiny bit.
well okay, maybe some days I will admit to feeling guilty....a little.
I have been asked, emailed, texted and questioned about all the time I spend running.
There are only so many hours in a day.
The pie can only be cut into so many pieces

It takes patience to handle situations like this one.  The one of many times LBM melted down while grocery shopping.

It takes a great deal of love to embrace the passions of my super secret spy. 
Like really expensive electric cars that are not even being made yet.

It takes a bit of energy to hold photos shoots to capture that just right picture day photo when S'ghetti girl thinks she has just nailed her outfit.

It takes creativity to come up with ideas to entertain and education my little tribe.

All of those things and more I get from that tiny slice of my daily pie called
Today is day # 674

What gets the biggest slice of your daily pie?


  1. Awesome post! I may have to sit down and evaluate my pie. I know by the hours, my family has less time but I feel running makes the time with them more rich.

  2. You know, it seems we spend soooooo much time running/training, but when you break down the day like that, it's really just a small slice. And it makes all those other slices taste better!

    1. Love your analogy! But, for the record, I am going to make my pie and see how it tastes!

  3. Hmmm. That's interesting...for some reason cooking and cleaning didn't even show up on my pie ;-)

  4. I think too much of my pie involves blog reading. But we all need a fix, huh? :)

  5. On two or three days a week I'm afraid running doesn't come into my pie at all, and when it does it isn't a very big slice. Apart from sleeping, another rather large slice might be internet browsing and Blogging which doesn't seem to get a mention in yours.

  6. Great question...My daily pie is so chopped up into micro-slices that sometimes I feel that I don't spend ENOUGH time doing any ONE thing. Therein lies my guilt. :)

    I love the meltdown picture, by the way. Somehow I think LBM probably doesn't appreciate the fact that he is doing a perfect forward fold in that photo.

  7. YOU

    I love this.
    I'd say my job but I love my job so it's all good.
