A week from today, my relaxing vacation where I'm only working full time will come to an end. Alas, classes in my evening law school program start again next week and my posts will become less common as well. Then my life will once again come to resemble the life portrayed in the song, BusyBusyBusy, by Kevin Klein from a popular children's CD, Philadelphia Chickens.
Let the four-way battle for my time begin! (Although it is still a three-way battle even now) My job demands 40 hours per week. My law school demands 9 hours per week of class, not to mention case preparation, studying, outlining, etc (I spend 16 hours per week there plus Motzoi Shabboses and Sundays as needed). My learning schedule is normally 13 hours per week. And I'm lucky if I can get in more than 30 minutes a day with my wife and most of Shabbos and Sunday with her and the kids. I feel bad being busybusybusy (TM), but it has been a conscious decision to make it that way for our family's benefit in the long run. B"H, everything's for a reason so let's make the most of every minute of it!
