Taking a little break

at the moment. I am knee deep in cleaning and this is a much needed break. I can't believe I haven't posted in over a week. Here it is June already. Time seems to be just flying by. I have been battling a overwhelming sense of guilt. Guilt that I have gotten half the things accomplished that I have wanted to have done by this time of the year. I am still struggling with the need to get myself better organized. I am working on it, but I guess my expectations are just too high. I don't know how women do it and work full time and have a family. I am going to implement some tools this week and see if things go better. Although I will admit that I have been terrible about getting menus done so that we can have a balanced meal in the evenings. Which is one thing that truly bothers me. But if any of you have any ideas, so that I don't feel like my weekend is constantly playing catch up, I would greatly appreciate it. Please give me some tips!!!! :)

Let's see, on my list still for today is continue with the laundry, grocery shop, clip coupons, make a menu, and a 15 minute job chore chart, just to name a few. Michael is busy outside, he has washed two vehicles and now he is waxing mine. He intended to have the garage completed by the end of this weekend so that my car would be able to go in there. It's not looking like it's going to happen, unless he does it in the afternoon. It's really hot outside now, and he really should come in for a bit to cool down.

I had planned on moving/sorting my closet this weekend, but that hasn't happened. Hopefully next weekend we can dedicate it to moving cloths around. I need to get my summer things out to wear, and donate what I don't want anymore or can't wear, and I am sure that is alot because I have put on some weight and nothing fits well. Way to tight. So it's time to evaluate how I am eating and try to work in some exercise somewhere.

Anyway, wanted to say hi to all my blogging buddies, and let you know that I have been thinking of you, and keeping those of you in my prayers that have requested prayer. Might try to get back with a update later, but making no promises. Have a super Monday.

Hi Cindy, I use to be busy 24/7 trying to keep things "perfect" and I would be on my kids. But life is too short and time for me is important. I do what I can and when my shoulder hurts, I have to realize my limits. We use a lot of chicken and use it for more than one meal. We will have grilled chicken and then save the left over in a stir fry or chicken tacos. Luckily my son and husband cook and Renee is cooking a couple of times a week now. Do what you can and don't get stressed or you will hurt your health and get depressed. Hugs

Hi Cindy,
When I read your post, I felt the stress that you are feeling. I agree with Susan. Balance is so important. I just sat through a whole conference last weekend about balance in Christ. Every day is a new beginning. Give yourself some grace... and ask God for help in the areas that He thinks you need to change. That's the best advice I can give you. HUGS.

I need to do all of those things and more. Hope we both get plenty done :)
