If you are burning the candle at both ends, why not light a few fires in the middle too?

I am feeling the stress a lot more lately than usual.  My co-worker is out sick for a few months leaving me to pick up the slack.  When you already have a job that is usually done by 4-6 people being done by 2 people then one of those is out it makes things unmanageable and I am barely holding it together. I am putting in long hours making it hard for me to keep up on my photography and my book.  I am barely meeting deadlines.

I get to work an hour early an use that hour to take or edit photos, work on my website, blog or book.  I have been starting work 30 minutes earlier now so that cuts into my time to get all that done.  My lunch hour is where I relax and read when it is quiet and no one is bothering me.  But now I usually work about halfway through it leaving me enough time to eat and that is pretty much it.  Then I have been working late in the evenings about another 30 minutes making me late getting home and giving me less time with the kids before they go to bed.

I feel like I am failing in all areas with my time cut short by working extra.  I have also been working the evening clinic about once every other week and about one Saturday a month just to barely keep up. I’m tired and I still have at least two more months of this to go for sure but, most likely it will be 6+ months.
