i can't juggle it all!
Lately I have felt overwhelmed with all that needs to be done. And all that I want to do. That's the kicker. I probably have plenty of time to do the things I have to do if (IF!) I didn't do anything else. But to be realistic, I need to find a good balance between the two.
I get frustrated with life, and then I notice that the "wanna do's" are taking priority over my "need to do's". Or even worse! Completely wasting time was taking over my list of priorities. It wouldn't matter if I had my priorities straight if I was wasting my time.
Well, I realized today that I was letting some things slip. Some of my normal day to day things were not getting done. And I was glad! I realized that I've been focusing on the important things - my husband, my kids, homeschooling, meals (ok, not house cleaning - oh well). And I've been letting go of some things - swaps and excessive computer time. I've even forgotten a few things - tumblr and facebook (I kinda hate facebook, I don't know why I was checking it so often).
I know I will deal with the "wanna do's" (and wasting time) taking over again, and again. But for now, I'm pretty pleased that things are a bit more balanced.
The pictures in this post are from this morning. Even though we had a busy day ahead of us, I was glad that we had the time to enjoy a toad Zach found before breakfast.
