Times up...

I went to the doctor a few weeks ago for my routine scolding regarding my general health.
The conversation goes like this:

Doctor: You need to take better care of yourself.
Me: I know, I know.
Doctor: You need to go to the gym regularly.
Me: I try, on weekdays I get up, make my son's school lunch and get ready for work. I work a very full day and then I usually run around picking up my son from various school/sport obligations. When I finally get home we eat dinner, go over homework, get in some play time, get him ready for bed. By that time its 9:30pm. Weekends its driving around dropping off then picking up my son. My working wife and I together to do our household errands. More playtime, then bedtime. Before I know it its 9:30pm again. My only window is 5:30am on weekdays or 7am on weekends and I usually do not make that window.

Doctor: I'm a doctor, have a family and I make time. Are you busier than I am?
Me: ?

He is right, I am going to make more time.
