It's definately possible to do both. I'm currently enrolled in a low-residency program that demands 25-30 hr of writing/reading a week. I also hold a full-time job, take care of my 1-year-old daughter, and deal with all of life's craziness (specifically maintaining/restoring my 1840s farmhouse, which is a time-eater). Of course, everyone is different in their habits and routine, but this is what works for me: I write from 4:30-7:00 am, work at my job from 8:30 to 5:00, make dinner/feed baby/spend quality time with family from 5:30-7:00, put the baby to bed at 7:30. After 7:30 (and during my lunch hour) I read to keep up with my annotations. I also try to spend as much time with my wife as possible--at night and during breakfast. I use the afternoons and nights on the weekends to relax with the family and do chores around the house. It's crazy but it works for me. My advice would be to find a schedule that works for you and stick to it. But, like I said, everyone works in a different way...you'll be amazed at how productive you can be when set to a routine...
