It doesn't really matter how I do it. I just do it. Husband, Father, gainfully employed times 2 simultaneously, xc/long distance mountain biker, house cleaner, gardener, recent health advocate, friend to many, neighbor, son, grandson,..etc. Some of these are roles. Some of these are defaults. Depending on my impulses, these are used to describe who I am sometimes. Mostly, these are elements of what I attempt to balance. Some days are better than others.
