What To Do, What To Do...

Went away from friday to Saturday night...very good. Got to reflect on myself, my life, my marriage, my kids...I feel more clear minded.

This week will be another week of getting the house under control. We are unmoving and it's still overwhelming. I'm trying to just focus on a bit at a time so as to not get overwhelmed to the extent that I just stop and cry and then retreat to my bed, when the huz comes home, or store it all internally and panic then yell at my babes. Does any of this makes sense?

To do list for just today.

Do as many loads of dishes as I can possibly stomach.

Vacuum the pretzel hell off my floor.

Shove loads of clothes into big black non eco friendly trash bags to get ready for a "clean start" laundry mat run.

Breathe. Art with kids- stuffed, colorful, BIG paper fishies. Something like this. Pics later.

Have a great week everyone!

I love organization...but with kids it is hard to find the time to do it. Moving kind of forces it. I applaud your work! You go girl!! and yes...remember to BREATHE!!

Sometimes we Moms need a re-charge. Being responsible for 3 little ones all the time can wear you down.

The pretzel hell on the floor sounds like a foot injury waiting to happen. Keep your shoes on!

I love those times away... times to reflect. I try to do that twice a year... it is very much needed and appreciated by me.
