Trying To Do Everything

Isn't that the case with  most moms? Sounds like it's the story of my life these days. I just want to do so many things and it feels like I'm being spread so thin. I know the answer would probably be to give up some of my sleep time if I want to be able to do more in a day...but I really like my sleep and don't really want to give any of it up!

Activities. Hunter has started t-ball this year. Yup, we have hit the age of having to run him around for activities. It's crazy already, so I guess I get to look forward to having to double that when Hudson starts in a few years. Hunter has games two nights during the week and then on Saturday morning or early afternoon. Add that on top of AWANA during the school year on Wednesday nights and we've got a full schedule. How do moms find the balance of wanting their kid to do all the fun activities they can while still balancing time for sit-down dinners every night?! I haven't found it yet.

Church. When we are home, going to church on Sunday mornings is just routine, we always go. But...man I would love to get back into going on Wednesday nights or Sunday nights, or both. It just seems like there is always chaos or Hudson will be in bed already. Probably just one of those things where it is what is, for this season in our lives. Thank goodness for Tuesday night bible study with some of my favorite women!

Quilting. I started playing around with quilting last Fall and quickly fell in love with it. I watched YouTube videos and just kind of figured it out. I've made a couple baby sized, a lap sized, and two full sized quilts. Hudson does not allow me to work on anything like this while he is awake ;) So that leaves nap time and late nights. Ugh. Once again, I don't like to give up my sleep time. Just worked on this for a friend's new baby girl at nap time today, now to find time to finish it!

All other things. I love to do things for others. Whether it be making baby's quilts, taking people meals, or watching someone else's kids for a few hours.... it just blesses me to do those things for others. But man, I wish I just had more time to do those things!

Oh well, once again, just a season in our lives with having young children. I can still dream of having twice as many hours in the day...or two of me. :) In the meantime, just trying to enjoy what is in front of me instead of just thinking of all the things that aren't getting done.

  1. Oh man I can relate! I have a dozen projects on my "I Want To Do" list at one time. I lose sleep thinking about them all!
