TGIF is all this mom can say! Our weeks are so crazy these days and Friday night is when I can take a breather for a little bit. No homework to be done, no practices or games to take the kids to, no where to be! I love it!
You may or may not have noticed that aside from our 2 weekly parties, I have not posted much in the last few weeks. It’s not for lack of inspiration or supplies or that everything on my craft to-do list has been checked off, it’s been because I needed to take care of my house. If you’ve been a reader of mine for any length of time you will know that I struggle to keep order in my house, to get the laundry done, to have balance in my house. One thought that’s been going through my head the last few weeks as I’ve had a a sick little boy, a MOUNTAIN of laundry to do, and State Tests for my 9 year old to worry about is that “I am a blogger last“.
As much as I enjoy my blog and being creative and doing all the fun crafty things I love to do, I am a mother first. I have to be. And not only a mother but a wife. I love my family. I’m so grateful for all of the blessings God has given me. But it sure is hard to keep in mind when you are run down and exhausted and tired and you really just want some “ME” time.
So this week after that quiet little reminder that I’m sure was from the Holy Spirit, this is what has been keeping me from blogging:
To say that I was caught up would be the understatement of the year! But I’m making progress!
Here’s my crazy-haired little guy watching me as I’m trying to figure out my new camera
This next picture sums up the usual on goings with a 2 year old in the house: stealing my diet coke and hands on my laptop (totally caught red-handed)!
So, that has been my life these days and I’m embracing the crazy!
(I did take photos of my girls but must have shot those in RAW – a new format I”m learning about with my camera but forgot that I need to convert them to JPG so I will blog about them another time.)
I DO have a FREE printable for you today for Free Printable Friday! I found this quote on motherhood a few days ago and it is really goes so well with this post. What a great reminder that our families (after God of course) need to come first.
