Juggling!

  Yep, I have become a juggler! Not really, but as a metaphor it works :) I have been juggling alot lately and feeling a bit overwhelmed. And I am sure that y'all all know what I am talking about. I am proud to say that I have been on top of keeping my house clean and keeping the laundry up to date. However, my cooking and grocery shopping have been put on the back burner! It seems like I can get one thing down and can't seem to add more. I am not really sure how some of you do it!!!


I mean I do not stop from the time I get up in the morning. I am washing dishes, fixing Noah food, changing his diaper, playing with Noah, putting on laundry, drying laundry, folding laundry, washing more dishes, cleaning up toddler messes, taking Maggie out to potty (a bazillion times), teaching Noah all kinds of things like colors and manners, putting receipts in the checkbook, paying bills, balancing the check book, bathing Noah, putting Noah down for a nap, and on and on and on......


Then I am trying to find time to get on the elliptical, go Christmas shopping, work on Noah's baby book, order pictures from when Noah was 6 mos old (yes I am behind), and not to mention important things like be a good wife and have a good relationship with the hubs, or friends, or family...and most importantly GOD! Not to mention I am the one that makes appointments for all of us, anywhere from haircuts to dentist appointments. 


When most ppl think about a stay at home momma, they don't realize that I run this house! Just like a business! I make it go!!! Of course my awesome husband helps too, but he works mad hours so I try to do as much as I can!!


So juggling has become my new thing. Trying to keep all this in the air and not dropping one! HA!!! I will let ya know when that actually happens. My question to y'all is how do you do it? Do you have a weekly, daily, monthly routine? How do you organize your time in each area..cleaning, cooking, child, hubs, friends, self, etc??? I will do another post on my "schedule" just to share as well :)

I wish I could say I had it all figured out but Im far from it. Some weeks we eat out, some weeks the clothes are behind and well sometimes I get caught up. I say the most important thing is your time with Noah, hubby, and God. All the other stuff can wait:) Thats always my motive for getting things done.

If you ever find a great solution let me know.
