Hey ladies! I guess I belong in here.
DH & I own a fine art reproduction company where artists and galleries bring us original works of art and DH photographs them and then we make prints to be sold online or in the galleries. We started about 5 years ago and DH was doing this full time while I was working full time an ad agency for the insurance and steady bill money. I quit last January, got pregnant in April and DS was born 5 days before the year anniversary of when I quit.
I know how lucky I am that DS can come with me every where and that I don't have to keep regular business hours and that I can do some of my work from home (we have a physical studio about 10 minutes from home where we do most of the work and have clients meet us) but I still feel spread too thin sometimes. Like I'm doing too much and doing none of it well. DS is my first priority and so far I'm not mucking that up too bad (it's only been 5 months so far so there's still plenty of time for that!) but I let a lot of work things fall through the cracks and don't feel good about that.
How do you guys manage everything and keep a balance between work and home when neither job has specific set hours therefore both end up being 24/7?
