A bit of an update

The last few months have been INSANE.

I finally had a minute today to sit down at my computer and do something other than research, type, or edit (although I do still have to do the latter) a paper, review, or assignment. With just over two weeks left of school for this semester I am managing to catch up on all the things I said I was going to do at the beginning of the year.

I started out 2014 with such good intentions.

I was going to work out regularly.
I was going to blog regularly.
I was going to keep my house in better condition.
I was going to spend more time with my kids.
I was going to pay better attention to my husband.
I was going to get better connected with other moms in my little seminary community.
I was going to...you name it I had plans.

Then classes started. And all that went straight down hill. Quickly. In a big burning ball of fire.

Over the last few weeks the assignments that I have had to do have really started to over whelm me. I began to think that maybe I had bitten off more than I could chew. And then I realized I am in control of my schedule. I am in control of my priorities. I can decided what is a major priority and what isn't. And I can be okay with the decisions that I make. I don't have to justify them to anyone.

It was kind of a refreshing feeling.

Would I love to have the spotless house? Sure.
Would I love to have lost that 20 pounds? ABSOLUTELY
Would I love to be the pinterest mom I really want to be? Of Course

But right now those things just aren't options. So for the next two and a half weeks those things will be on the back burner. I will continue to get done what I can, when I can, and the rest will fall into place some other time. Maybe...and if they don't that is ok too.

So there you go. That's where I am at and sorta what I have been up to the in the last two months since I posted.

Anyone else had to just learn to let go and just be ok with where you are in the moment? Or is that just me?
