Chillin' Like A...

I've been meaning to get on here for a week now and update you on my "mission".  I have to say that it was a complete success!  YAY!  I didn't get to do everything that I would have liked to, but by the end of the 5 days, I had a clean and straightened home.  I had also finished some projects that had been on the backburner for a long time.
And thanks to some honest commentary from friends (Thank you so much by the way!), I also emerged with a new attitude and perspective.  I'm ready to admit that I have been way too hard on myself which is the main reason things get so bad to begin with!  I let things get backed up a little bit, then start beating myself up about it, which in turn keeps me from doing what I need to do, which only leads to the problem getting worse...  UGH, get me off this crazy rollercoaster!

So, I decided to take a chill pill.  Yes, I still don't think I have any excuse to not stay on top of things (no kids), but beating myself up about it is counter productive.  I am doing what I can when I can and I'm not freaking out about what is going left unfinished.  I've managed to stay sane all week!  Aren't you proud of me?!

There's so much more I want to tell you about!  Some big stuff is coming so stay tuned!

But in the mean time, tell me- What's your hangup?  Is there something you're proned to beat yourself up about?  Let me know I'm not a weirdo out here being hard on myself!


  1. today is that day for me---sometimes I just get too much on my plate & then I feel like I can't give anything 100%. I keep telling myself--you can only do what you can do---hopefully I'll make it over the hump soon. (maybe after finals) :(

  2. I know you will Amber! See- you have good excuses: Kids, School, Your work, and church callings! Please let me know if I can help with ANYTHING!

  3. So good to find your blog again. I had your old one on my blog still. Yay! Now that student teaching is over I can get caught up. So...I am beginning my organizing mission as well. WooHoo! Just pray I stay motivated :)
