BFS Assignment "It keeps going, and going, and going"

Oh, this assignment is so easy. The truth be told I don't keep up with the energizer bunny. I fall down and don't get up. I've come to realize that I only have so many "organizational genes" in me. I'm very good, usually, at keeping my thoughts and ideas organized for school. Which is quite an accomplishment since I am juggling varying curriculums at the same time. I think I am a curriculum "junkie". As far as "it keeps going, and going, and going" I feel that way about the dirty dishes that pile up, the laundry, the continual list of things that need Mom's attention. I do have my children help out but schedules can be hectic so we are always behind. I don't let it bother me much. I'm a pastor's wife so it bothers me more when a parishioner comes knocking (and off course it is on the day the place is a wreck or I just got out of bed or both). I figure that a true friend doesn't come to see how well you keep the house, she comes to visit you and your family. My moto is "I'm doing all I can right now." School is the main priority, there will be plenty of time for me to have a "perfect" house or a "perfect" system when the kids have all graduated. There it's easy.

I imagine none of us have that perfect house or perfect schedule!

thanks for sharing!

Yes, yes! Your priorities sound right...and yes, they always show up when the house is at its worst. Like you said tho, they shouldn't be thinking upon whether your house is this or that, but rather spending time with you. Very well put!

Realizing your limitations is always a great way of organizing yourself and family.

I can relate to the schedules getting hectic! I like your 'motto' too. :-)

Thanks for sharing - I loved hearing about how you handle your busy household and your entry is an encouragement to me in keeping priorities in place. What a blessing!

Have a wonderful week,
