Hello, my 13 followers... are you still there? :)
Forgive me for being so absent. I have the best intentions, and then life gets in the way, and then the words don't make it to the page. Maybe that isn't a bad thing? Life has been busy since school started. J just finished basketball and has Boy Scouts every Tuesday and M has cheer practice on Mondays, Girl Scouts every other Tuesday, and cheers every Saturday morning right now. We all have church activities and I am co-leading a GA's group on Wednesday nights.
I'm not complaining, but maybe I've stretched myself a little thin?
I feel so thankful that my kids have so much to do, so many opportunities to be active in school and church and community, but some days I wonder why I signed up for so much. Our family has gotten into the habit of being busy and we get so caught up in the busy that we often forget to slow down and just live life.
On good days, I get everything done and we run here, there, and everywhere. Some days, I don't do anything. Nothing. Notta. (Like today.) The dishes pile up and the laundry piles up and the toys aren't put away and I don't even change out of my pajamas or wash my hair. I pile up in the recliner and drink coffee and browse (in)courage and play on Pinterest and catch up with friends on Facebook. This usually happens when my husband is working and won't be home for a day or two... on those days, I know I should be doing something, but I just feel too mentally exhausted to even care. It sounds horrible, but it's an honest confession.
Do any of you have days like that or am I the only slacker here today? I'm determined to get the dishes done and the laundry folded before church this afternoon... pray for me?
