I was starting to write a post asking “How in the world do you get every thing done?” Lately every blog I read sounds as if they have 80 hours in a day. Gardening, cooking, cleaning school, kids activities, cooking, animals, laundry, cooking, mending, outdoor work, cooking, dishes…and laundry again because you have to fold and put those suckers away. No disrespect intended, but those of us that garden or live simply know the work can be never ending. Rewarding, fulfilling and gratifying and satisfying…. but never ending. Toss in a few (or many) children and a household to run…. something has to give!
I can’t keep up!
I was supposed to pick blueberries this morning but it was so nice and cool (low 80’s) I stayed home and worked in the garden. Started the laundry which is still piled up from 2 weeks ago. I could write a book in all the dust that is protecting the furniture, My ironing board is still up from a month ago and the pile on it just gets higher and higher. I missed strawberry season so no jam there, blueberries are in full swing, the garden will be producing heavily next week, I work from home and have orders out the ears…a living room full of yarn, an addition we are building ….and we will be out of town for 3 days next week. I have yet to prepare the jars for canning & my fridge has a few science projects if any one needs one.
I started through my blog roll this morning (yes, I could have been out in the garden instead but, without a few cups of coffee I can hardly walk) and read this post from '>Lanna and another from Not Dabbling in Normal & I have to tell ya, its nice knowing everyone struggles with it. Makes me normal.
How do you prioritize & keep balance?
