Back by Popular Demand

Ok, I don’t know if “popular” is the word, but I would say that dozens of emails has done the trick.


Have you ever felt like the shoes you decided to put on were TOO BIG?

Well, I decided that I was going to be that mom this year.

You know the one.

The one who puts her kids first.

Before signing up on the meals for others sheet, before pursuing personal indulgence, before dates with friends, and even putting their goals and aspirations before my own.

You see my children have been helping me fulfill my responsibilities at church for awhile now, so I figured this year was their turn.

I had all the balls in the air and it was all going along just fine, until we hit Spring Break. 

We headed to Arizona and had a great time.

When we got home, life took over.

It was the home stretch for school and with 5 out of 6 kids in sports, teenagers running track at school on top of travel teams, gymnastics for a 6 year old who had waited too long to try something herself, an 8 year old with piano competitions and a recital, not to even mention the school play, talent shows, field days, field trips and so on….

I was overloaded….just like these shoes are for the feet trying to fill them.

It is summer and the children are ready and willing to help me with one of my dreams…to help any one I can get more organized.

So, each morning mom has TWO hours, one for the exercise she has just reestablished in her life and one for our organization blog.


See you tomorrow!

  1. WELCOME BACK!!!!! I am so excited! I can also appreciate the need to step back and put those sweet little ones first. All too soon they will be gone and we will have too much time for exercising, blogging, cleaning and all the things that we can't get around to right now! Love you!
