Juggling Act


Sometimes mothers seem to be in a constant juggling act. There is the kids, laundry, cleaning, cooking, work, etc. It can be difficult to keep up!

My plate has been extremely full lately. It can be completely overwhelming sometimes. It makes it even harder to not have the help at home because your other half is a world away on deployment. Holding down the fort at home is no tea party.

I've had to make some tough choices lately. I really wanted to homeschool my older son but it's just not going to happen. We probably won't be homeschooling at all anymore. So that is off my plate. Then there was an awesome job offer that I turned down. I was going to work for a costume company creating some fun works of art… ballet and dance competition outfits, cheerleader uniforms (think pro football & schools), etc. Unfortunately, I don't think I have enough arms to juggle with. I decided to not add that to my plate, even though it is something that I want to do. That was such a hard decision! The company owner was completely understanding though and I still have a position if I ever do find the time.

So without those extra things I'm feeling much more confident about taking care of everything else that I have to do. And my business won't suffer, which makes me happy!

And with school starting in about 2 weeks I'll be getting back into blogging! I miss it and enjoy the extra little outlet it gives me. :) I hope all my bloggy friends are doing well & I can't wait to see you around again!
