Life Happens!

Well, I was planning on listing some items for Etsy on Wed. night after we got back from the apartments that my husband and I manage, but he decided to have a fight with the lawn mower, so we went to the ER instead. (The lawn mower WON!) He's lucky - he gets to keep his fingers, as long as they heal OK.

But this got me thinking about life and the impossible situations that happen on a daily basis! How do you cope with the ER visits, notes from school that the kids don't give you until too late, the dog that will not be potty trained, or the constant stack of dishes in the sink and clothes in the hamper?

I am a fairly organized person and love to admit that I can schedule my family for anything and make it work, but it seems these days that all I want to do is make it stop! I just want to throw the clothes out and buy new (But I don't make THAT much on Etsy!) and start using paper plates every night. But this wouldn't be right!

So what is your trick for keeping the balance just right for your household? Tell me - I need some help right now!! :-)

Take care all! Megan

  1. I've been feeling the same way lately. Over worked underpaid stressed out to the point of ulcers, just wanting the world to stop spinning for five minutes so I can catch up! One thing I've found that helps is lots of little "mommy time outs". I get in my car and drive with the radio up and the windows down.. even if just for five minutes.. to just center.
