Ever feel like this?
It seems like that at least once or twice a year I sit back and look at my life and am completely overwhelmed.
There are so many good and constructive and meaningful things that I wish to accomplish that there seems to be no way to get it all done.
I am committed to cooking from scratch from as much homegrown produce as possible. But as noble as that is it also entails a large garden with all that involves. Not to mention the time it takes to cook from scratch for a large family every day…all day long.
Homeschooling is something that for our family is a lifestyle choice that we made long ago. Yet there are days that planning lessons and hanging out ALL day with my kids seems a bit…well crazy!
Then there are the animals that are as much a part of the family as anyone that need care and cleaning and feeding.
The dishes don’t do themselves…
Nor does the mountain of laundry.
There are bills and doctor’s appointments. Dentists visits and playgroups….
I try to make sure we flex our creative muscle so crafts are a must.
And then there is the blogging…and the photography that is involved.
My mother-in-law is still lingering in hospice, visiting numerous times a week is a must.
I know it is all about prioritizing…but everything seems important and/or necessary.
So here is my question for you today.
How do you do it all? Or have you given up on doing it all and just do what you love? Or do you delegate and sit back and eat bon bons while you order everyone around?
Seriously…there must be a system or something for getting it all done. I would pay big bucks if someone could let me in on the secret!
