Pour Your Heart Out - Finding a routine


I have been out of the blogging routine for so long, I feel like I can't remember how to do this anymore. I have no routine and it overwhelms me. Adjusting back to life at home is more challenging that I expected it would be. I have so many things I want to do, and I want to do them all RIGHT NOW.

I want to go to the everyday. I want to take Miss H to the pool to swim. I want to write on my blog, and read and comment on your blogs. I want to sign up for sewing classes.

I need to clean my house, do my laundry, and prepare meals for my family. I need to work on my new "wobby" as a Macaroni Kid Publisher Mom, which I absolutely LOVE doing.

I want to connect with my friends on Twitter and Facebook. I want to upload pictures from my camera for the last couple of months and update my family blog. I want to go pick blueberries.

I want. I need. I want. I need.


This is my reminder to myself that everything will get done in good time. That I just need to take some time to get back into my routine.

I realized every mom wants to do more and more, but not much time to do it. I'm one of them too.
I had lots meltdown moments. So...don't overwhelm yourself. Have a great day!!

THe mom who figures out how to be in two places at once is going to make a fortune. But the down side is that there would be twice as much stuff to do then, so maybe not. Anyway, I hope you can find your balance and yourself and your routine.

You have no idea how much I relate to this today. I am feeling completely overwhelmed and at a loss with things!

I hope you feel in a groove again soon!

Oh...I so relate!!!!! There is so much to do - and time is limited. And figuring out what to tackle when and how to fit which in where and still feel like I am tending to all the needs of everyone.... grr...I so get it!

When you figure out the secret - let me know!

You are so right! It does seem overwhelming when you list it all.
I got so busy the last couple of weeks that I wasn't really around the blogging world. I missed it and am looking forward to being back.

It will get done. One thing at a time. Maybe make a list? I love lists.

Hi Stoppin over from PYHO.
I can so relate. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed with everything I should be doing or even want to be doing and I just end up doing nothing and then I feel more "mom guilt" for not doing anything :):)
But you're right we just need to relax and everything will get done in time (there's a lot more important things than cleaning the house anyway :))

Things will get back to normal. I know how you feel though. I would love to take a sewing class! That sounds fun.
