too much

You have been wondering what I have been up to... or maybe you don't care, you're just wondering why I haven't been posting my freebies lately.. :)   I have been able to balance my life pretty well, but it has become a little overwhelming.  I have had to prioritize and some things just don't get done...

Here is what I have been up to:

1. I have been devoting all of my spare time to an 84 page sports guide I just finished and sent to the printer...  that has been a HUGE burden.    But it's done! :) 

2.  My ex sister-in-law is struggling and her children were taken into the custody of the state...  I have been taking care of her youngest (my brothers) since the end of May.  She has been in need of almost constant attention.  Summer was long but now she is kindergarten in the afternoon and she loves it.  We just found out that her daddy gets full custody of her on Oct. 12th.

3.  Monday the 19th my family when on a small hike and my uncle fell and shattered BOTH of his heels!  My house is the only one without stairs and with someone "home", so I get to take care of him!  I love him and I'm glad he's here and we get to serve him for the next 12 weeks...   BE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR FEET!! 

4.  I am a wife, a mother of 2 young children (plus 1),  I do hair part time from my home, I am room mom, on the PTA Board over Reflections and have a calling in my church that takes me out of the house every Thursday night from 4:30 to 10:00pm,  I have been training for my first Marathon (Oct. 1st!)  AND I teach Digital Scrapbooking Classes!  

My problem is that I love to do it all...  It came as a shock to me that I am really not super woman.  (haha)  I can't do it all! (at the same time anyway)  I am on my way to "de-junking" my time.  As you have seen I have rearranged my class schedule to every other month.  I may be able to add more classes but I will have to get through these next busy months first. 

Sorry I have disappeared but I hope have some goodies for you soon! 
Until then here is a coupon code for my October Classes!  use CRAZY15 for $15 off!

Comment:  Has your life ever been out of control?  Too much to handle?  How did you cope?  How did you Simplify?


  1. an epiphany such as yours is wonderful to behold. You do not need to be superwoman for me or any of your techy admirers.

    I heard a wonderful talk last night that I would like to share with you. Here are the highlights:

    1) be patient and compassionate with yourself while you are serving others and living life;
    2) there is a difference between good and foolish sacrifices (your efforts to prioritize is a great compliment to your understanding of this);
    3) be happy Now! find Joy in the journey;
    4) remember the Why of Christ-like living and giving (I would like to sit in on one of your classes at your church as I think you are mastering the Why beautifully);
    5) remember the Lord loves you. You are His heart and hands, He will sustain you.

  2. WOW!! Oh I want to call you right now! But it's late :( YOU ARE AMAZING!! I'll try and call you soon!
