Happy Monday, folks! This week I'm excited to be a guest blogger at The Really Real Housewives. I love that blog! I'll be doing three posts about geek parenting on a budget. Even if you don't have kids, it's fun geeky stuff!
Today I'm excited to have the fabulous Tara Tyler as my guest. One lucky commenter will win a free ecopy of her newest awesome tale, Jolissa. Take it away, Tara!

I cannot juggle. Juggling takes skill, balance, practice, and perseverance - you're going to drop a lot of balls before you get good!
juggling - there's something up in the air at all times
And here is my point:
Juggling life is just as difficult.
We all struggle with finding a good balance between family and work and free time. (I heard that chuckle when I said free time!)
But when all the pieces fall into place, there is peace.
Putting off to tomorrow things I couldn't get done today is NOT procrastination. It's underestimation of time needed.
NEVER FEEL GUILTY FOR ENJOYING YOUR FREE TIME! We must have our time - our time to do what we enjoy plus sleep re-energizes us so we can go back to work.
And there is the circle of life, a continuous juggling of time management, trying to keep it all balanced.
Inevitably, life throws an extra ball into the mix, so we adjust. It takes a little work, but it's okay to drop the ball sometimes. And make sure you ask for help - you're not alone! Plenty of clowns trying to juggle their own balls.
Thanks for having me over Christine!
Tara's latest publication is Jolissa - An Anti-Princess Story, a novella with an on-going Youtube storybook.
A trouble-making maiden, a clumsy out-of-work squire, a loyal puppy, and a talking goat go on a quest - What could go wrong?
Tara Tyler has had a hand in everything from waitressing to rocket engineering. After moving all over, she now writes and teaches math in Ohio with her three active boys and Coach Husband. Currently, she has two series, Pop Travel (techno-thriller detective capers) and Broken Branch Falls (fantasy adventures). She's a commended blogger, contributed to several anthologies, and to get all these projects in, she economizes her time, aka the Lazy Housewife. Make every day an adventure!
