Time is flying past. The kids are growing faster than I ever imagined. The lawn needs to be mowed, again. The weeds must be wrestled. So much needs our attention and yet nothing gets attention. We are like pin balls, flying this way and that. Planning when we can get to certain projects. I contemplated calling in sick on Monday. Instead I went in 15 minutes late. I wrote checks for all of our bills. On Monday night I wrote a list of every meal that our children will eat.


Yesterday our cleaning people came. GLORIOUS! I am one of those people that doesn't "see" the mess, but when it is gone I am stunned at the magnitude of cleanliness and organization.

Deep breaths keep me present. Sleep keeps me refreshed. Altering my diet will detox my body of the awful chemicals that I ashamedly exist on. Baby steps.

All in all it is a good life. Love abounds. Laughter is constant.

Okay... who gave you the password to my internal monologue? (minus the kids part?)

While reading this, I was reminded of the quote "Life is what happens when you're planning for the future."

Yea! I am going to print out this post and stick it on my wall!

DC - I am actually glad you fell asleep b/c I had to work last night. I will watch tonight and we can dish on Phil.

I think what you did is a great exercise. Even though it's hard to find time to force yourself to sit and reflect - I like it!

I'm going to try this tonight....
We'll see if I can get through it.

This post is at the other end of the spectrum from your last post. The circle of life, eh? It really is a miracle.

sounds great...
allow me to whine... I want cleaning people.

Man, you have cleaning people? I'm jealous!! Well, I am a stay-at-home mom, so I GUESS that's kinda part of the job, right? Sigh.

Sounds like you are making progress. Remember the cliche, "Rome wasn't built in a day." You'll get there, just keep taking those baby steps.

P.S. Consider yourself tagged :)
