TIME

How can I go from SO much Time left before Thanksgiving and Christmas…to …

It’s All Over.

I felt on top of it all-on the ball-in the groove; and now I’ll be cleaning everything up before it WAS all up…and so it goes…

Grandma always said Time moved by more quickly every year…I really can’t imagine how fast it was moving for her in her last years…

Miss you G’ma-I won’t stress out, but I ended up more unprepared than I was prepared for…

I will welcome in the New Year anyway with ready arms…

Always Looking for….

When am I NOT looking for something….?¬†There is¬†always something: ¬†the remote, or my phone, or something I¬†got a¬†month ago to use ‘later’ and now have no idea where it is….it’s always something. How much of my life has been spent ‘looking for’ a thing? I really don’t want to know. But maybe with writing,¬†something can be found¬†inside myself again. That is, when I have time in between looking for things! I’ve wanted writing to be a regular thing for awhile, but time has just slipped away from me. I want to remember when Travis, my now 7 yr old, started standing on his own. I want to remember how I felt when Trevor, my 4 yr old, and I had to stay in the hospital because he was having a tough time breathing. I want to look back and¬†picture when Tyler, my 11 month old, started playing peek-a-boo on his own….

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Now the hardest thing is going to be dealing with my perfectionism. Already that paragraph¬†took me longer than it should. I should be free writing; not looking back until I’m done; ¬†journaling….well, this blog thing, along with me, is a work in progress. Aren’t we always trying to make things just a little bit better? Our home¬†has been¬†a work in progress especially, since our last son Tyler was born…or maybe it can be more accurately described as a¬†cat and mouse game! I can not catch up with the “to dos” for the life of me. “Eventually” is my motto of late….Busy, Busy, Busy is hard, but I don’t necessary catch up when it’s not so ‘busy’ either, because then¬†I tend to take a breather, and that “extra time” I think was there, is gone in a blink. I need to find a better balance…

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Organization (including de-cluttering)¬†and time management will be my Goals this New Year-so I can stop ‘Always looking’….so I can find that MOST Important Thing of all~unworried Time with my Boys ( and when I say Boys, I mean the boys, hubby and yes, even our dog Phifer)…yes, I am surrounded by testosterone….you get used to it ūüôā And I love it, despite the sorry eyes and head shakes when I say we have three boys….”oh, I’m so sorry”….well, I’m NOT! I’ve already found what I’m looking for there….
