I may say that I work best under pressure, but I crave the peaceful happiness in this picture. There is too much going on in my little corner of the world. There's good stuff, like planning for school next month, and heavy stuff, like our struggling church, and difficult stuff, like a six year old who thinks he 16 or 60 (the rolling eyes, the know-it-all attitude, the "Listen, mom, it's like this") - oh my word. Sometimes stuff just seems to take over my life.
- I must have a clean (clean! not just straightened up!) kitchen before I go to bed every night
- all the laundry gets washed and dried today, folded and put away tomorrow
- no tv tomorrow - a trip to the library, the swimming pool and helping Mommy should keep everyone busy
- set my alarm to get up in the morning in time to fix Casey breakfast
Now, to get to work...
