IWSG--How Long Have You Gone?

I began a job over five weeks ago. It's only part time, at a new grocery store (Wegmans, if anyone is in the mid-Atlantic area, they may know it) and in the Customer Service Department. I work between 20-30 hours a week and honestly, I haven't worked that much since before child #2 was born over 15 years ago. I have not written in almost two months. How long have you gone between writing one word, then another? I have a story I am writing with a friend, "Sticks & Stones", and my goal was to have a rough draft by August when I was going to visit her. However, I got maybe 60% of it done and that is where I ended.

Looking for a job took up a lot of time, then training, then opening this brand new store and now working. I love my job, I love the people, I love writing but between work, my kids, housework, making meals etc. something had to give.

When do you find time to work writing into your schedule? How long did it take you, if you recently began working again, to get back to doing the things you love?

Just seeking advice. This isn't a huge blog post. I just didn't want another month to go by where I forgot to post!
