not ready

I feel like this month I've just been working really hard to keep people fed and my head above the water. As usual we've really not over-committed ourselves, but I feel pressed for time to do more. Baby is needing more attention, more help going to sleep (this last set of molars are killing me), and more opportunities to grow into a sweet little person. That's just taken priority lately, which makes me feel behind on other things that need to be done but really don't matter.

If I had more time to the day I would get more sleep. I would exercise every day. I would blog of our exciting adventures. I would do fun educational games with Baby every day, find somewhere she could run every day. There's lots of things I would quickly commit to doing with more time.

But as it is the days are getting shorter and I do well to get in bed by a decent hour. Someday I won't be as needed and I'll be able to exercise every day again. Someday I'll be able to get a good night's sleep most every night. Someday I'll be super-Mommy and rival Mary Poppins.

Some day I'll be able to sit down and dedicate an hour to blogging of exciting adventures again. But that day isn't today.

Today I quickly wish you a very merry Christmas. I hope your holiday is surrounded by those you love and wrapped tightly in God's loving grace. I hope you're able to ignore the hustle-bustle long enough appreciate the things that really matter. And I hope you have far too many complex carbohydrates.

I'd wish you a whole month of twenty-five hour days if that would help. Things will get better, I can almost guarantee it. I remember ours got better right after our youngest got married. I'm sure you won't have to wait that long. I do have empathy for your situation. And I do wish you a very merry Christmas.

"...hat need to be done but really don't matter."

I like your attitude. If I had your address, I'd send you a Christmas card, but as I don't -- Merry Christmas!

You are so wise : ) Make time for the things that are the most important! Blogging can wait...your baby can not! I love when people are wise enough to figure this out on their own. Well said! Wishing you the most happy New year! Love, Becky
