If this blog were a real person, it would have totally unfriended me by now.
I ignore its requests to hang out, and it's been a long time since I've returned its calls.
I haven't been very loyal to it lately.
But there's a reason!
I refuse to use the excuse that my life is "crazy busy."
It's kind of a pet peeve of mine. We're all busy.
I will say instead that as more and more things are added to our calendar, there's a lot of work that needs to be done with time management and balancing it all.
I used to love to be busy. BUSY, BUSY, BUSY!!! I felt alive and important.
I loved the challenge of keeping all of the plates spinning.
I hate busy.
But sometimes life gives us busy and I'm navigating the rocky waters to try to make it work.
Here's a glimpse in my
crazy mismanaged life.
On one side of my master bath you see a newly re-organized linen closet
|Ah! Feels good.|
But a quick glance to the right and you'll see the laundry I've neglected all week
Here's a view of my recent check outs at the library
|Ah! Feels good to constantly be working on photography skills.|
I set a goal last year to read through the Bible. A look into my bookmark and you'll see that I'm still in Exodus!! Got a long way to go...
|Although I will point out that I have been reading some other books of the Bible...not very good at sticking with plans!!|
And to top it all off, as I was typing this blog post a hear a knock at the door.
Who could that be?
Oh, it's just a client showing up for a photo shoot!!
Luckily, Melinda was patient with me and waited while I set the backdrop up and she graciously overlooked the clutter! (Thanks girl, you're awesome like that!)
But the morning gets even better.
As I head off to pick up Maddie from preschool I hear stuff rolling around in the back.
What could that be?
Oh, it's just the groceries (including milk) I bought two hours ago after dropping Maddie off.
So, there may be a few things I'm doing well but balancing it all...no way.
Not. even. close.
It's definitely a work in progress and I'll close with saying that I have not worn make-up in two days because I have inconveniently temporarily misplaced my make-up bag!
