Well I had one of those thoughts the other day....
My husband will tell you that there is nothing finished in our whole lives (except having more children). This is what my kitchen looked like a few weeks ago
No cupboard doors, half finished ceiling and electric.
My recipe project that I started with so much gusto in July....stalled.
The baby's room....sittin' there
My son late for school.....twice last week (I drop him off)
Table Cloths from Christmas....unwashed in the laundry room
So as I was ebbing the other day, a thought occurred to me....
Well first I posed the question...."What am I doing wrong? It's not for lack of trying. I work really hard all day long."
Then the answer, "Its simple....a matter of prioritization". Prioritizing does not make a super mom. Prioritizing ensures that the things that need to get done today, get done.
So here are some examples.
Sure the cupboards need a second coat of paint but first....the grocery list.
Please don't try to squeeze one more thing in this morning, get your kid to school on time.
Hey blogging is really important but why don't you play with this cute baby instead.
This is me learning how to manage my household...you can laugh.....it's okay.
When I look at my house/kids/life on any given morning it's so incredibly overwhelming
So now I step into my day with the thought, "In the spirit of prioritization....."
or I make commitments to others with the thought, "In the spirit of prioritization...."
or I tackle my housework with the thought, "In the spirit of prioritization...."
It's not the glam life of doing what I want when I want but I see the value of ordering my day. I think it'll make me a better friend, mom and wife....
.....I'll keep you posted
Thanks for reading
