It’s September 3rd and I’m falling behind!
Working in the shelter system for 7 years taught me to expect the unexpected ( to steal a junk tv tag line, thanks Julie Chen). Being a single mom for 4 years taught me that life cannot always be “planned” into action. Growing up in, working for and marrying into the life of a Salvation Army officers family taught me that life, like postal codes, can change on a regular basis. You’d think because of those lifs lessons I’d have learned to roll with the punches. To grab life by the horns.
But instead, here I am, 4:30am searching for freezer meals for our Christmas season, to avoid last years catastrophe of feeding my family dinner at 7:30… if they were lucky. I’m also on the hunt for project ideas for Child III while the teachers/government negotiate a new contract while our kids sit at home actually wanting to learn. Oh… and I’m 3 days behind on the Bible study I’m doing, and a week behind on the new kids program for church, and a couple days later then I wanted to get started on Sunday School lesson distribution (although with just one other SS leader, I’m not so stressed about that one).
Did I mention I promised my Dr I’d join a gym in August? And … well… its September.
I need to focus. I need to get my act together. I feel like I’ve lost the plot and we’re only 3 days in!
*** Ha! Thats how much of an organizational fail… its now the 10th and I didnt even post this yet lol
