It's too much. This evening I stretched out on my bed and prayed for some wisdom! I realized that I needed to narrow my focus during this season of life and accept the true limitations of this time. I did this back in January, creating a list of what I planned to focus on for three months. It helped me tremendously!
My priorities, in addition to regular meals, housework, childcare, exercise and my own reading/journaling, for the next three or so months will be:
*throwing a bridal shower
*sewing the clothing for the wedding my husband and children are in
*flower and vegetable gardening
*pastoral search committee work
*minor reorganizing of the schoolroom
That's it! That is truly all I will have the time to do, and all I need to do during this season. Setting solid priorities like this helps me keep my focus on what is important during each season of life. I've found that setting these goals seasonally is helpful!
And on that note: it's time to sew.
