Amy tells my I try to hard to give advice and that it makes me seem like I don't care. She's a smart girl, so I suppose she's right. Besides, in this case we are in the same boat.
What I wonder, what I always wonder is why I always think I'll have more time to do the things I want to accomplish on the weekends when I always have less time. I think that what I really need to do is make space during the weekday somehow. I'm already getting up at 4:45 AM. I guess I could get up earlier. (And isn't it funny how when people are telling you how to find time for something they say get up earlier. Can't find time to meditate? Get up earlier! Excercise? Get up earlier! Work on that side project you hope becomes the main project? Get up earlier! Before you know it you don't bother going to sleep at all.)
I think there might be another solution rather than the getting up earlier. I can't rely on getting time to myself in the evenings but there is one space where no one else demands my time... while I'm cooking dinner. I find it easier to do more active things on the weekend, what if I could get most of the meals done then so that it's hands off in the evening for the most part. I could take my laptop and work in the kitchen while keeping an eye on things. What do you think?
