October was a crazy month. In the throes of football season and Saturday morning breakfasts, this year we added Saturday volleyball and soccer. I even coached! Toss in an unexpected week at the hospital, a random stomach bug, and a teething toddler getting three molars at once, and let’s just say I didn’t take the time to organize the sock drawer and clean behind the oven.
One of the reasons I’m determined to Get it Together is so when life happens and I’m thrown off, my home can absorb the waves. If the cleaning is done most of the time, when meal planning and prepping is happening most of the time, then the impact of an off day (or week) isn’t so harsh.
I won’t claim to be reformed this month, and I can’t blame the chaos. If anything, participating in the 31 Days series brought to the surface the things I need to work on to make our house a peaceful home. That’s what I desire!
If the balls you’re juggling are bouncing in heaps all over the floor, don’t lose hope! Getting it together is not an overnight project. It takes time and diligence, and that’s why this challenge isn’t ending for me. I won’t be blogging it every day, but will continue to occasionally post my triumphs and struggles over on Facebook. Be sure to commiserate with me, or give me a kick in the pants, over there!
Let’s talk positive tonight. We’re all doing something right. In what aspect of your life do you most have it together?
