Balancing Act.

Do you ever lie down at night and wonder where in the world your day has gone? 
I do. 
I've never felt so much like wanting to take time for myself as I do right now. 
We get up and go through the same schedule everyday and I've realized I try to cram 
so much into a 24 hour period, I'm bitter, grumpy and ungrateful. 
Some things need to take a backseat to the more important things in life. 
I'm not stopping blogging, but trying to balance a full-time job, being a mommy and 
having time for my husband and the rest of my family has become harder than ever. 
I'll still blog about all the things I've always blogged about but they may 
be sporatic and in spurts. 
I've always loved blogging, it keeps me sane, grounded and gives 
me a wonderful trail of the year; what we've done, how Beckett's grown. 
It's my creative outlet and a way to display and talk about all my passions. 
(Because there are many). 
I guess what I'm basically trying to say is that some days there will be posts and some days there won't. 
The last few weeks have been chock FULL!! 
I work at an accounting firm and getting through tax season 
this year was unbearably hard.  
Over the last 2 months Beckett's had the stomach virus, 
a double ear infection, hand foot and mouth disease, pinkeye and we all have fought sinus 
problems and for most of the week last week, I had no voice and topped off 
my weekend with chills and fever. 
I've never been so relieved to be able to wrap up a tax season than I was this year. 
Then......I heard about this book trilogy 50 Shades of Grey....
I've had my nose in a book for the last two weeks and have finally wrapped up 
the series.  (Although I can't comment too much on the book....ahem....if you've 
read it, you know what I mean.).  LOVED IT! 
I'm praying life will get back to normal for us now that it looks like we're all on the mend 
and I'm not up to my eyeballs at work in tax returns and phone calls.
It's good to be over the hump!  
Happy Thursday! 


  1. I can relate with you 100%. Wait until you have two kiddos ;) I love my time with my kids and hubby so blogging for me does get to the back burner from time to time. I find myself blogging at midnight sometimes. Sickness-stinks, especially when it is your baby :( 50 shades of grey. My close childhood friend told me to read it, but wouldn't discuss it with me. Guess I will run out to get it!! Have a great week!

    1. I know I'm not in the boat alone....! I can't imagine juggling it all with 2!!
      I hope you've started 50 Shades, it's jaw dropping to say the least.
