Do you want me to fix your jewelry or your toilet?

At one point in my life I had three jobs, two part time jobs and one full time job. This does not include my kids or husband which are both at the very least part time jobs. Juggling all of this eventually made me CRAZY. I would get a phone call and she would say, "Hey this is Christy" to which I would reply, "yes and. . ." I did not know if she was from my part-time business of selling jewelry or from my part-time job at our apartments. Things were beginning to get out of hand. . . but I had to persevere for as long as possible because my hubs was finishing up seminary and we needed to keep the balls in the air. So I persevered until the end of seminary and now I am growing my hair back. Fortunately, this was only a season of life and I have since moved back to some version of sanity.

I am not sure why, but my hubs said things naturally follow an order of calm to chaos. If you clean up everything in the house, it will come undone pretty quickly (as you might know). Well, after almost two years of being in a state of calm things are slowly, but steadily moving back to chaos. I started out having my kids in public school and me working part time from home. The next year, I brought one of them home with me and have been juggling him and my part time job. Next year, guess what. . . I believe we have gravitated to the "chaos season" once again. Hansel and Gretel are both interested in being home and mom is still working that nice quiet part-time job she once had.

Are you with me? Multi-taskin' momma is about to be hairless again. :)

It's easy to fix the craziness. The kids don't HAVE to come home.

I'm just sayin'... since I'm kinda partial to your hair.

I agree with John Mark! Homeschooling worked for us when we needed it, but you gotta decide what's best for your family and your sanity. If you are too busy, you can't be prepared to handle whatever God steers your way cuz your too busy juggling!
