Why is the beginning of a school year so hard? This year is kicking my tail. I wasn't able to work in my room but one day before we went back for meetings. So I started the year off behind and just can't seem to get caught up!

Then of course I'm really regretting the last words of my last post. I'm alive, and WELL....that brought on the lovely upper-respiratory junk I've acquired. Which means I've already took 1/2 a day off of work for a trip to the doctor (that story could be a whole post in itself). And which means we weren't able to go up to mom's last night because I can't risk making her sick. (Oh, I'm really awesome at going up, and filling her life with sunshine).

Then theres the fact that I'm not embarrassed to tell you that my house looks like a cyclone came through (cleaning is next on my list).

I'm curious how do others balance life? Home, husband, work, devotions, supper, laundry.....?

Edit: I just reread this, my cup's half empty today! Check back later this week and I'll write about sunshine, lollipops, and smiley faces!

I think that there are more people out there who feel like you, than there are people who actually have the balancing act figured out.

They just are too proud to admit it.

Hang in there. Baby steps. You'll get done what needs to be done. And the rest....well, it can wait.

Oh Girl, all you have to do is follow me around one day and you'll see I've got it all balanced perfectly.
NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) Your first commenter gave some good steps. Do what needs to be done. The rest can wait. :)
Remember those carefree days of childhood? They're over! LOL!!!
PS - Thanks for leaving congrats for my daughter on my website! :)

You can do it!! You are tough just like your Mom. You know how good she cleans house, laundry and a million other things. Don't worry about the house, it will wait on you. Hope you get to feeling better.
