I think we make the time, space and money for our hobbies, whatever they are. I like to have a home layout, but I do not obsess over it. I have the luxury of a fifth bedroom I will be using to house my layout, which is scheduled to begin construction this summer. I usually stick with simple track plans which provide for continuous running and some switching operations. My layout will pose some scenic construction challenges, but it will not be an overwhelming task. It will also not require a lot of cars or locomotives to make it work. I work at it when I can find time and have motivation. We all eventually find ourselves pulled back into some sort of nice layout project....good luck.
