this is what happens when you have too many things going on in a week.
i wrote the words below last Wednesday, and then life took over and i never got the chance to post it.
i said to my husband on Friday of last week that i am so glad most of my weeks and days are not like they were last week. i felt like i was going in 100 different directions on Friday and it was all good and great and i don’t regret any of it. but, truth be told, i don’t ENJOY the busy-ness of life when it’s too much. when i’m home only long enough to grab something and get right back out the door to the next thing. when i’m buzzing from one thing to the next and feeling like i barely give my best efforts to anything.
this week looks much more manageable in most respects and for that i am glad.
i guess the too-busy weeks help me appreciate the ones that tend to be more even keeled.
i was supposed to be over at the children’s school this afternoon, but i’ve been coughing my head off today, and i’m pretty sure none of the school kids were going to learn anything from that, so i stayed home.
Kate is down for her nap, not sleeping yet, but in bed.
the sun is shining so beautifully, and i would really love to be outside, but (see first paragraph about coughing my head off all day.)
i cleaned the boys room this morning. i certainly should have documented that occasion with a photo. but, no worries. i will surely be cleaning it again all too soon.
i baked three quiche this morning too. we all love quiche and it makes the best grab-and-go breakfasts for our before school mornings that are less than calm and serene.
i ordered 16 boxes of tissues online and they came today. if i was going to hashtag that moment it would most definitely be #idespiserunningoutoftissues
the floor was just mopped and i’ve long been justifying my having to sit down in the living room by starting to mop the floor at the other side of the room and then i am forced to take a break. from the chair i’m sitting in, this is the exact view at the moment:
i also ordered a new, 8 quart crock pot from Amazon and it came yesterday. it’s currently cooking two pork roasts for supper.
and, a two random things that are speaking to me right now…
“Prayer is not an escape from responsibility; it is our response to God’s ability.”
