I’ve been a little overwhelmed lately with all of the things I need to get done. Nothing too big, but just trying to get used to working on hobbies, passions, dreams, alongside of taking care of Jack, the house, the laundry, dishes, dinner, etc. I’m learning to adjust, but it’s definitely taking time.
I’m not a person who functions well when I over book my schedule. And my over book is probably most people’s regular schedule. But for me, and our family, to function well, we need a balance of time out, time with friends, time at church and Bible study, time with family, and time at home doing chores, playing here, working on projects, and for me getting some work done. My sister is the person who can come by here from 3-5, go to dinner with someone, go do something with someone else after that, and then go home to spend time with her roommates. That stresses me out so much 🙂 There’s nothing wrong with either way – we are just wired differently. Although I will never understand how she does all of that having narcolepsy??
Today has ended up being a freebie day for us. Jack is sick, so we are stuck at home. It’s given me a chance to look at my calendar, get a little work done, spend time with my boy, and give us a reason to just be at home. Of course, the down side is that it means we have to cancel our fun plans too. No playing with any friends today. No dinner with some fun friends tonight. And of course no one likes having to wash the same sheets twice in one day. Or their kid being sick. But with so much sickness going around this time of year, I’m thankful Jack has been healthy so far this year. And I will take the opportunity today to refocus at home and refocus my heart. Avoiding busyness and reminding myself to FOCUS.
Tomorrow I will no doubt sing a different tune when Jack has to miss preschool.
