Priorities

I’m trying to figure this all out.

LegosI want…so many things!  So many good things.  To be a better mom, to be a better wife. I know I’m decent, but I know I could do more; and no, I’m not being hard on myself. :)   To advocate for the hurting.  To be a more present friend.  To grow the business in a tangible way. Not to spin my wheels, which sometimes seems like a daily thing.  I wish life weren’t so busy.  Especially for a very NON Type A person like myself.

I know I have it good; I’m not complaining.  Just pondering.  Where should my priorities lie and how should that look like? (I do have the God/Wife/Mom thing figured out, even if they aren’t put into practice like they should be); it’s the other details that have me stumped. I have one day a week pretty much to myself, when the boys head up to their Grandma’s house. Only thing is, I’m stuck with the “What do I do now?” question on those days. Clean house?  Start a much desired project?  Get out of town?  Stay in bed all day?  Work on the business?  Write a blog post?  Organize the homeschooling thing better?  Visit much-neglected friends?  And the other 6 days a week that they are home? Well then. A little bit chaotic.  (But good, people.  I ADORE keeping them home).  Luke has all of the sudden started to skip his naps though…for shame.

I try to structure things for homeschool for Ry and Jack, but I know I could do so much better by them.  A little brother sure enjoys the attention on himself, which makes things a wee bit difficult.  That picture of Luke up there?  It’s such a precious sight.  Please pray I see it more often. {grin}

Does anyone have things down to a fairly decent, workable science?  And do you happen to have a non-stop 2 year old that fits into the mix…yet you keep things sane and straight anyway?  And have you managed to dust, maybe even clean your windows, too? {I can’t recall the last time I dusted, and about a year ago my parents very graciously cleaned my porch windows.  Other than that…yeah…well…}

Like I said, not complaining.  Just curious.  Just trying to discover what exactly it is God has for me…when and where and why and how-to.  And if you have any time-management ideas to throw my way, feel free!  Truly!

I’ll be back here, sometime.  Actually, I think I’m going to work hard to write one post a week.  Two, when I can.  My mind is fairly bursting with things to write about, and I have a giveaway in the works.  We also have new items up in the shop; I’ll share them here soon but in the meantime, if you haven’t been in awhile, you should go check it out! Right now, though, that bathroom is calling my name, begging me to clean it.  It does that on a fairly consistent basis.

{Priorities, you know.}
