Tis the season to stay so busy. My busiest time of year.
I LOVE my job. Adore it. Desire it.
But I have other jobs.
Mommy. Wife. Friend.
Lately I have been so very busy that I haven't had much time to be anything. I know until mid December I will be underwater. Rarely coming up for air. I am preparing myself.
Over 4 years ago I quit my 40 hour a week job so that I could be a stay at home mom. My little hobby of taking pictures turned into a successful career. I love my career. Yet I sometimes forget that I am also still a stay at home mom. So here I am again working full time pretty much at home and still staying involved with my childrens' school. Still trying (not successfully) to keep a tidy home. Getting a healthy dinner on the table. Lunches made. Homework done. Husband kissed. Friends called. Dog exercized. Emails answered. Children read to. Laundry folded (don't laugh my dear Chad, I sometimes fold laundry).
You get the idea.
I need to breathe. Enjoy. Feel blessed that I have a job to get stressed over (because I bring it on myself don't I?), that my kids are healthy enough to run around and scream and fight, that my husband enjoys my cooking (snicker), that I have more great friends that a girl could ask for, that I have family to call, a house to clean, the best dog in the world, and clothes to fold. I will remember to thank God for my answered prayers.
As soon as I finish this mess of a blog, I will wake up my family and get the kids ready for school. I have been up since 4:30 editing. But I needed a break. After I take my daughter to school, I will come back home and edit. Then clean some. Then maybe, if I am a very good girl, take time for me. Paint my toenails maybe? Shave my legs? Tweeze my eyebrows? I know. I know. I am pathetic.
One more breath before I wake up the household.
