The Balance

Sheesh! I feel like I've been juggling a million things over the past several days and I've barely had time to sit down and breathe. I'm totally in one of those places where everywhere I turn and look there is something to get done, whether it be everyday "life" stuff, like laundry, cleaning, and groceries... or adoption mumbo jumbo, like dossier documents to gather, and our required education... or preparing for this mega yard sale, sorting, organizing, and pricing like a crazy lady! Add on top of that, starting a Beth Moore Bible study, A Women's Heart, that I'm super excited about but completely at a loss for when I'm going to have the time to knock it out! (ladies that have done Beth Moore before, you know that the homework load can be a doozey!)  Oh and one minor detail in this mix... I have a 3 year old son that needs his mama!  I'm not sure how the heck to find the balance in it all besides to make "to do" lists and feel a little accomplished when I cross one off... AND Diet Mt. Dew does wonders in keeping me going! (o;  But both those things only go so far, so I pray that God would step into my chaos and be in it with me, providing a healthy balance of it all. 

And YES a blog entry as been on the list and I feel a little better now that I can cross it off the list, at least  for today! (o; Any other of you adopting mama's ever feel like this?!


  1. Girl, I was feeling EXACTLY like this...until today! Something really special happened today the I hope to blog about later!! :) But yes, I know how you feel...I have been so crazy lately!!

  2. Hilary - Ooooooooooooooooh Maaaan! I feel what you're going through. I have had to close my eyes as I pass the pile of laundry and my girls messy rooms a few times - as I try to focus on our family business. :)

    I will be praying for some "organized" chaos (cuz life is always a lil crazy ♥) and for God to Jump in and help ya feel a little less overwhelmed :) ♥

    P.S. I hope your education portion of your adoption process goes well! I know the "Eyes Wide Open" workbook to us SO long to complete! GOOD STUFF Thought! :)

  3. Praying everything gets done and He sends some helpers your way. Keep up the hard work's all worth it!! :)

  4. i just got our house cleaned finally yesterday. i am taking care of 5 kittens amongst other things i daily take care of. but i love it!! and when our daughter comes home, i know it will be that much busier!! i am sure!!

    hang in there.

  5. You know I do!!! I might just be buying some Diet Mtn Dew this weekend- Wished you were here with me to drink it :) that and eat our childhood raspberry cream were they?

  6. Wow! I have felt this way so much since I went back to work!! Then I took a different job in May and life has hit hyper speed. I know what you mean about your little guy. I have to stop myself from the everyday life and house and say - I'm going to play right now. It's those moments that I take with me at work that help me make it through:) I am really proud of you and your commitment to the bible study, so often I think do I have time, what will I miss at home, knowing that being obedient to God and studying His word with take care of the rest!
