The battle of modern man: Making do with 24 hours

Actually, 24 hours is enough for me. It's the things I have to do within those that are to much! I am in one of those "living without margin" moments. I am a graduate student at University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (now an online student) and recently accepted a new full-time job in Arlington. Since we are launching in a few weeks, I have been having to bring work home to keep up, and put in my double-effort.

Did I also mention that I am in my second year of marriage, and really trying to do it right? That means spending time with my wife practically every day, as possible. It also means trying to go to bed at the same time as my wife does. It also means being home for dinner. Marriage takes energy and hard work. And time--plenty of time.

I find I barely have time to catch my breath. I go to church on Sundays--a wonderful respite from my rushed week--and try to not do work on Saturday. But, these days, its been hard.

So, that's my rant for the month. I usually do not submit my readers to this sort of thing, but if you have any helpful hints on how to best juggle 3 primary and non-negotiable roles (husband, employee, and student) feel free to share them with me.
