It's very difficult to find balance between family and work.

Balance.... it is hard to achieve. I went from a stay at home mom for 10 years while I was married to doing a full time apprenticeship to become a baker and working nights. At one stage I was working 60+ hours a week. I have reciently changed jobs, and I am only working 4 10 hour days with 3 days off. I am hoping that this new change to my life will help. I also get someone in to clean my house so I don't have to spend my weekend doing that. It is my little luxury and was a bit weird at first... but 3 years later I am so glad that I did it. I do my grocery shopping online as well. I can do it while relaxing with a coffee at 3am if I want to. It saves me wasting my "family time". Let me know if any of you have any other suggestions on ways to make things easier.
