Some Days

A soup bowl really isn't...
big enough....

Not talking about flu folks. :)
*on a side, nobody else got it...phew*

Talking about stress management techniques.
Breathe in.
Breathe out.
Pretend like you're blowing on a soup bowl.

I've been carrying my imaginary one around for a few months now.
I think it's time to lose the stress or get a bigger one.

All is fine.
It's just been a really long Winter.

Right now I have 27 minutes before I have a meeting at church.
I'm part of the design team.
Today we're talking window treatments.
Walls are painted.
Furniture is in.
We still have some major decisions to go.

In the remaining 26 minutes,
I need to finish this post,
clean the counter,
toss a load of laundry in,
deal with the mail,
make some decisions re paperwork,
find masking tape for the fun fair decorating,
figure out what I'm making for the bake sale,
decide on dinner,
straighten the art studio which hasn't been used for art lately...
just tutor,
push a million creative ideas out of my mind,

Clearly my focus needs more focus.
-23 minutes to do the above, including drive time.
Gotta go.


  1. I don't know how you get done all you do. You are superwoman! I wish that I could do your bake sale task for you. Love this post. The best part is the kids trying not to smile while blowing!

  2. Wow girl, you are busy!!! I hope that you get some you time soon!!! Love the bowl, looks like the size I used to have for my cereal!! :)
    You are all so adorable in the pictures!!! Hugs!

  3. Goodness...I hope you got it all done in time!:)
    Remembering to breathe is a mantra around here.
    Funny thing is, it really does work!:)
    Have a happy night

  4. Hi Julie,

    I've been the same this past few weeks. All my children have been ill with one thing or another. But it does pass. Hooray!!

    You sound as though you've got a lot on your plate. I always try and remember that I don't *have* to do all that I want to do. You can push things off your plate if you want. Does that make sense?!

    Here's a big hug, just in case...*squeeze*
