What a whirlwind!

I was thinking the other day that it had been a week or two since I last posted some of my ramblings. Imagine my surprise when I realized it has been an entire month! I have a list of posts I want to do...I just need to do them!

I feel like most weeks just fly by in a whirl of activity. Most of that (I think) can be blamed on the fact that I'm a girl who cain't say "no". Each week I think "It will get slower paced if I can just get past _____________" filling in the blank with whatever the activity du jour happens to be.

Right now, I'm just hoping to get through this hump at work and the craziness that is the last month of school. Of course, then I will be striving to plan vacation, regularly go to the pool, take Mary to Safety Town, transition Mary and Leah to a new day care, get Sarah to Girl Scout Camp, plan vacation bible school, do back to school shopping, get Mary ready for Kindergarten...

The list is endless.

People who have multiple kids in school keep telling me that this is the tip of the iceberg. When exactly does life slow down to a manageable pace? When I'm in a nursing home?

Boy am I a whiner tonight. I need to just stop for a second and reflect upon all the wonderful things in my life. I have a wonderful husband, 3 healthy, beautiful, mostly well-behaved children, a job I love (85% of the time) and a decent living.

Of course if I stopped to reflect upon my blessings then I would miss some deadline or another!
