This is art from one of my fav artists James Christensen titled "The Responsible Woman"...I feel I can relate to her on some level, at least the responsibilities part although she seems to handle it in a much more graceful manner.
I have had tons of things to post about lately but finding the time seemed impossible so here goes:
*My youngest brother Kirk left for his mission on the 16th...it was very very emotional...I knew it would be but was still surprised and even saw my sis Dionne (who is 17) cry for the first time in my life, long story behind that. Kirk was emotional but so excited and my little Brooklyn didn't want to let him go. He entered the MTC on the 18th and is doing fabulous according to Phillip Case!
*Last Saturday woke at 7am, took the kids hiking camelback til 9:30am, went to a work picnic from 10:30am to 2pm (won $50 to Chuck E Cheese's), attended a baptism at 3:30pm, took the kids to Chuck E Cheese's at 5:30pm...came home and fell over from sunburn and exhaustion.
*This week so far I have compiled and mailed my Mellow +Yellow package (from a swap I joined here) to Kelly in Tustin California. Attended the Barbeque-Softball FHE on Monday night leaving in time to catch the season premier to Heros. I have managed to walk Brooklyn to school each morning, keep up on dishes and laundry, water the newly growing lawn, babysit, sew up a mock prom dress, attend the temple, go to Hawaiin Ice with my fam, chat with my mom and sister's, begin the real prom dress (Baby Pink) which needs completion by prom on Saturday, and now I am to Wednesday!
*As for activities the rest of the week...
Today-Wednesday-is my catch up day~Pick up the house, bathrooms, reading, blogging, flip through the book I have on time management-wonder where I am lacking, attend YW recognition tonight.
Thursday~Continue & finish sewing Dionne's prom dress, prepare for housesitting and babysitting at the Jorgensen's, and teach an enrichment class.
Isn't life greatI hope this doesn't sound like I am complaining just trying to work in a way to juggle everything gracefully, and have time for new adventures!
