Brother, can I borrow some time

I don’t watch Netflix a lot.

I like to eat home-cooked meals with my wife and two-year-old daughter.

I wake up between 5:30 and 6. I meditate or write or read for a few minutes. That’s how my morning routine starts.

I arrive at work between 8:30 and 8:50 and work until 4:30 or 4:50.

Most evenings I chat with my daughter and wife on the way home from daycare.

My wife and I share bedtime duties for our daughter. That always includes three bedtime stories, toothbrushing, one outfit change and some serious negotiation. But she’s asleep or in bed for good by 8:30.

We clean up the kitchen and living room.

Then I look up and it’s 9 pm.

And there’s a bunch of things left undone.

I wonder what we need to steal back time.

But I know the hard work is in figuring out what to cut out.
