Will there ever be a day when everything is "caught up"?
My best and dearest friends have it all together. Their lives are not out of control. Their houses are not a wreck. They are not overwhelmed with the day to day business of life. They are the women who stock pile Birthday gifts and greeting cards...just in case. They are the women who start buying for Christmas in January so that they have it all done before the mad rush. They are the women who never mind if someone just drops by the house because their houses are always nice and neat. They have balanced budgets and live within their means......and i feel like I am coming apart at the seams! If they can do it, I should be able to as well.
There are so many things looming over my head....I don't even know where to start! I would much rather sit here on the PC and pretend like I truly have nothing better to do.
The house needs cleaning
There are about 3 loads of laundry waiting on my in the laundry room
We have more bills than money
i need to spend quality time with my kids
i need to spend quality time with my hubby
I need to go to the gym
I need to clean out the kids clothes and give the ones that are too small to some friends
I need to clean out and wash and vacuum my car.
I need to study my Sunday School lesson one more time before tomorrow
I need to get our clothes out and ready for tomorrow.
I need to prepare the first week of FLO's Bible study
I need to weed my flower beds.
Actually, as is so often the case, things do not seem so bad once I get them on "paper".
I am going to make a list, implement a plan to get my life in order. The unorganized chaos is making me an unbearable grouch!
Right now the kids want me to play the Wii with them. I'll start a load of laundry and play with them while it runs.
That's a step in the right direction at least.
