I’ve hit my limit! This fall has been the busiest ever – want to know what I’ve been doing:
–I have a craft blog. Posting takes time. Crafting takes time. But I love it.
–I have been doing photo sessions this fall – it’s fun, I love doing it, capturing moments for families, etc. But in the fall it’s really busy – there were weeks I had 5+ sessions – crazy. Not to mention each session then has 1-2 hours of photo editing. Oh, the hours spent staring at the computer…
–ALL 4 of my kids have birthdays in the fall, within 5 weeks of each other. Only 2 had parties this year, but still, 2 parties.
–My oldest is turning 8 and will be baptized - so planning, etc for that.
–Room mom, hosting crafting playgroups, etc.
–I was crazy and agreed to be in a Quiet Book Group – cranked out 18 quiet book pages
–2 of my kids were in fall sports – some of you may think this is nothing, but it’s our first year to have 2 in a sport at once, and it was busy.
–I put together the Primary Program at church.
–I am in a crafting competition (SYTYC) that requires a new fabulous craft each week. Why did I do a fall season?!?!
–We got Netflix on the Wii and I have to watch all The Office episodes, one by one..
–The regular church activities, playgroups, music groups, book groups, library storytimes, etc.
–Of course, trying to be the best wife/mother I can
You can laugh at me – I know I volunteered for almost all of this – it all sounded fun at the time – and it all usually is, just not at the same time. Anyways, something had to give, and it’s cleaning. I can keep on top of my main level, but the basement is shot, and my craft room might have hit the point of no return (in my defense, my mom cleared out bins and bins of stuff and I of course took them – they haven’t found a place yet, so normally it’s not SO bad!) – is this how hoarders get started?!
Here you go, just Keeping it Real for your viewing pleasure:
I can’t waste time cleaning because there’s always a deadline for another project that takes higher priority. And occasionally you’ll see this at my house: toddler in jammies mid-morning, confined to a circle in front of the TV (really, I thought it was too cute when I found him sitting the hulahoop, I had to take a picture).
My husband can’t really talk when it comes to taking on too much – look what’s coming along in our backyard:
(and yes, I thought about presenting a Playhouse Castle as my finale project in SYTYC – wouldn’t that have been great?! but I didn’t construct it and it might be more of a craft than the competition is looking for!)
