Let It Go.

My days are not my own. And of course this is nothing new, just something new I'm learning and taking to heart again.

I am not sure where my time is going. I seem to have a deficit.

Yesterday flew by with crazy busy mornings and potty accidents and getting out the door.
Returning for a no-nap afternoon, kids home from school with late assignments and a valentine box needing to be made.
M's Valentine box.
Our Book-It pizza dinner is a blur and then it's different directions for J and I as he carts one to gymnastics and I cart others home to bed.

Today, I look at the clock and it's already 1. Much to do in the next 90 minutes before two school-agers with homework walk in the door looking for a snack.

Praying that E keeps sleeping and that H will finally fall asleep. Lord knows he needs a good nap.

Four days and counting, no nap for him and after a busy morning of ECFE Valentine's party and candy galore and he's wiped. And so am I.
H addressing his Valentines for friends.
Looking around at the books left on the living room floor. The toy cars lined up on the steps. The dishwasher light is flashing that the dishes are clean and need to be put away and the garbage can is being blown over by the wind at the end of the driveway.

It is not hard to get overwhelmed.

The one thing I've got going is that the house is clean, top to bottom. Just pick up tasks remain.

I turn off my cell phone that is beeping with new voicemail, ignore the pile of papers and notes on my desk that I promised myself yesterday I would go through today.

Today, my friends, I have decided to let it go.

Maybe this is your reminder to let it go as well...

We all need to learn to let go more often - especially shutting off the cell phone!

If it makes you feel any better, my days fly by fast, too - and I'm not raising a small village! ;)

Well done you, my dear. There will always be time for papers, blinking cell phones, and pick-up...

So is this a sign that I should let my homework "go" for the evening??? :)
