Life is a balancing act. Sometimes it seems everything "comes due" at the same time. And it's a little nerve wracking. I have a lot of balls in the air and, thankfully, the end is in sight. I think.
I like to plan ahead and know what I'm doing each day. I don't usually make written lists. Just mental ones (which is not always a good thing).
Tonight we are giving the butterfly bags to the Living Legacy Foundation, so that's almost over. Kim and I have spent a few afternoons together sewing, fixing wonky bags, and stringing the bags. (Kim more than me, bless her.)
We are also having a program for the Young Women (ages 12-18) at church tonight and I was asked to make a DVD slideshow of the girls. That's almost finished.
I've been asked to give a soap demonstration for the women at church in March, but I don't know the date and I'm getting itchy about it. I have a bad feeling it's going to be on a Tuesday night, and that's a karate night in our family. With Joe and the Army, I can't plan ahead and expect he will be home early enough or be in town for said unknown date. Plus, they would like me to have a batch already made. And it takes four weeks to cure and, well, it's just next month. Yeah, getting itchy about that.
Today we were going to sit back and relax and finish Spenser's Valentines for preschool. No handmade again this year. When you need nearly 100 Valentines, you realize that the store-bought ones can be a time saver when you are near deficit in time. And energy. And I'm pretty sure my boys don't want to make them. Except my artist, Jackson.
Instead, we had a last-minute Valentines Day bash invite, so we are headed there this morning.
But, first things first. I need to go de-toothpaste the upstairs bathroom. Again.
For the sanity of your mother, boys, please keep the toothpaste on the toothbrush. Is it too much to ask? (Besides watching where you aim?)
