I feel like I am being pulled in a million different directions. I feel like there should be at least 4 of me. lol Between taking kid #1 to school, picking him up, groceries, laundry, dishes, ironing uniforms, choir practice, cleaning, working, cooking, cleaning and trying to spend family time. PHEW! I get exhausted. Also because I stress myself out. I am the kind of person that needs things done yesterday. Know what I mean? If things need to be done, do it now, why wait?
So last Friday afternoon, my husband took one look at me and just knew I needed to just drop everything and have a family night. So he took us to dinner and Dave and Busters. It was so much fun. I really needed that. And I know that the boys needed that time with me too. We played lots of fun games and I will always cherish that. I still remember little man's smiles.
So after that, I realized I needed to re-adjust my schedule. I spent the weekend cleaning and doing laundry. I ironed all of little man's uniforms on Saturday. SO during the week I didn't need to do laundry. I just need to mellow out and I haven't been able to. I am trying to teach myself that the most important thing is my boys and spending time with them.
How do you balance life?
