the state of my brain~


Make sense? A total jumble of thoughts in a repeating pattern.

That, is the state of my brain.

Whoa. That is all I can say about my life right now. This sixth little sweetie has thrown me for a loop! A big one. I feel like I am going around and around, upside down. Only to come to a stop, and have this giant roller coaster take off again. And this over the course of maybe an hour or so. Basically, my brain is just one big jumble of things to think about, things to do, things to get in order, goals I have, things to change, things to tweak, child training that needs to take place, babies to feed, diapers to change, baby weight to lose....you get the picture. Anyway, I haven't felt the ability to be able to sit down and organize anything on paper (the computer..whatever...you get the picture). It always helps me so much to write, though, that I really should have probably been doing it anyway.

For some reason I had put this pressure on myself though, that my blog needed to be all about being encouraging and helpful to others, and I do want it to be that, but I also started it as a way to journal for myself, and hopefully as a fun thing to have for my children when they are older. So...hopefully....I can get it going and keep up with it a bit better than I have in recent weeks. I will give due warning, though. One of my passions is to learn to and be able to manage my home with excellence, and at this point in my life, that means a lot more concentrating on school. I had what felt like lots of free time over the summer, especially being in my baby moon, that I could just blog and blog, but now that the baby moon is over and "real life" has once again become a necessity, I am having to prioritize. So, I do plan to continue to blog, just probably not quite as often. I do have some fun stuff and more important stuff going around in my brain....if I can just get it to come in for a landing maybe I can write about it.

When I had my sixth organization went out the window. I find that I can't concentrate on much anymore and life if much more complicated. I still feel like I'm in a fog a lot of times and she just turned 1!! Also, I am now 10 1/2 weeks pregnant with #7. Maybe someday soon I'll feel like myself again...

It's all about grace isn't it? ;) Anyway, wanted to say thanks for the advice you gave me on my blog. I posted a comment back to you, but just so you dont' have to go looking for it:
Yes, it made me feel better that you aren't by the clock. I'm trying to slowly implement some more structure (computer only at certain times, etc) and ease into it. It's also gotten better since Joe has finally dropped the morning nap this past week. And I also have more ideas to help Finley figure out where we are at, like a little weekly calendar, but haven't gotten to that yet. Thanks for the advice!

"How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about arithmetic, and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman’s function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness." ~GK Chesterton
