Time to reevaluate!

I may have mentioned before what a great schedule Anna and I have- well I am not so sure anymore? I feel like we don't have any down time. A day where we can just play, have a mini read- a-thon or can go on a little field trip. A day where Mommy gets the laundry done, dishwasher emptied and is able to find and go through the winter clothes. All the activities we are doing are wonderful BUT to much of even a good thing is no longer a good thing. We are missing out on the peacefulness of being Mom and daughter. It is time to prayerfully reconsider and make a few decisions. I sense that Anna is getting frustrated and crabby. I am not sure how I know that BUT it could be when she whips my glasses of my face or throws her food off her high chair! I knew we would be making schedule changes when Ming Ming comes but I believe we will be making them sooner than originally planned! I am going to pray for God's direction!

Okay, I think I went a little overboard here with the blog thing. I was so excited to have this cute background on this blog that I now have 4 blogs. Ahhhh, yeah I said, 4 blogs. Chances are I won't be able to keep up with all of them so some will go to blog heaven. They each have their purpose- this one is for our family. "The Princess Diaries" are for our daughters from China. "Ferndale Academy" is our homeschool blog, it will get going when we are actually homeschooling. "Simplify, Simplify, Simplify" is faith directed and my personal ramblings (lessons I've learned, lessons I need to learn, praising God, etc). One more thing- God will be in all the blogs. You don't categorize God into one area of your life! He is everywhere!

Oh have I mentioned that today while I was gone I received 49 e-mails. AAAAAHHHHHHHH!
That is crazy. I joined a couple new yahoo groups and there is a lot of talk about nothing on them. They do have some important discussions and sometimes they are informative. Obviously I need to "digest" a few of them or opt out of the group.

Okay there is a theme in this post and I need to do some praying and look for guidance from our God!

Show me the path where I shall walk, Oh Lord; Point out the right road for me to follow.
Psalm 25:4

I'm totally with you Jean! I think being over-busy is exhausting and frustrating. I am a home-body big time & I love that most days Lucy and I stay home & just play (I really wish I could say that I get tons of housework done...but I don't. Oh well). And 4 blogs!? I've got some catching up to do!
