How do you do it?


The last few days I've been really on top of things. It's not super overwhelming. Well, sure it can be at times. But that's just being a mom, right? Anyway, I think this new system I've come up with is really going to help me stay on top of everything. At least, so far it's working. I guess we'll see as time goes on.

I've got my housework and other responsibilities divided up (somewhat) evenly throughout the week. Yesterday I didn't get it all done. But today I made up for it by getting today's work done, finishing yesterday's work, and having a little recreation time to spare! I'd call that balance.
But sometimes it still feels like I could/should be doing more. And other times it feels like I'm cramming too much into a single day. Either way, I know there's no way I can do it all and still sleep. I'm the first to admit that I am NOT Super Mom!!

So I'm just wondering how you guys do it. How do you balance it all? How do you get everything done? Is one day set aside to clean the house? Or do the laundry? Or do you do a little each day? And when do you SLEEP?!

Another New Blog

I've started a new blog. I'm doing it for me, not anyone else. I want to make permanent improvements to my life. I need to journal it. But I don't write in a journal. So I'm blogging it. Because somehow that's easier than a journal.

This new blog is super personal to me. I generally try to write things as honestly as I can. But the truth is, every now and then I delete something or just leave it out or change it a little because I know someone may read it. I can't do that with this blog. I will write near daily (hopefully) and will write as if I am the only one who will ever see it.

I am writing it for me. To keep me striving for goals that I feel are so important to my happiness. I am sharing it in hopes that someone else may find it useful. Someone else might not feel alone. And because maybe we can help each other be better

I've posted once. I plan to post again tomorrow morning. Maybe tomorrow night. We'll see. I'm kind of nervous about it. I have a lot of stuff in my head that I want to write about it but it's late. I need to get up early. So good night!!

My Best Mother's Day Present

This is a video Payson made of herself singing "Maybe This Time" from Cabaret sung by Liza Minelli, but sung here by Kristin Chenowith on "Glee". Payson has become more obsessed with the music of Glee than I have. It's provided some awesome entertainment. She realizes I'm watching her towards the end, but the beginning is great!! This has been my favorite thing this Mother's Day so I had to share it with you!! Enjoy!!
