I had to take a break from blogging for a bit. In addition to taking on two new kids we had a series of hospital visits between Joe and I . So our family is short one appendix and a gall bladder and one member of our family has had the experiance of dealing with cracked ribs! The one good thing so far after my surgery is that it appears I've lost some poundage! Last I checked I was down 9 lbs! Booyah! Anyway, so in the weeks I was off I was hoping to get organized with life. I thought I'd have time to organize clutter, pack up kids clothes that no longer fit, give everything a home, come up with a schedule for my day care kids, my own kids, meals, cleaning etc etc. Basically move a mountain in 2 weeks. Needless to say not much happened other than one junk drawer somewhat cleaned out. Anyway so I realized getting organized (especially for a gal who isn't organized in the least and is a terrible procrastinator!) isn't as easy as it looks! So in all this time I've had to contemplate getting organized I've had time to think a little about the bigger picture. As much as I'd love to be that perfectly organized mom who has everything planned out and completely together, this is me and it's how God made me! That being said it doesn't mean I should give up and except it, there is always room for improvement. But I need to so as a part of God's plan for my life, not my own! So my attempts at organization at this current point in time don't include stocking up on storage solutions to the chaos, or making beautiful charts for the strategically planned out day. Someday soon maybe, but for right now it's me trying to accept what I am and learning to trust in God's plan for my life. Enjoying life, not wallowing in doubt or beating myself up for what I'm not!
