Organized Mom on November 3rd, 2008

It’s tough sometimes. The holidays are coming too soon. My son’s one year birthday is in 3 weeks. :O

Really, where does the time go?

I’ve been staying up late, getting up early, and not getting enough sleep. It’s one of those vicious cycles that I’m trying so hard to break.

I have things I need to do. Things that MUST be done. But I don’t want to ignore my son. This time with him is precious, and I realize how fleeting it is. It won’t be long before he’ll be pushing away, wanting to go play instead of cuddling with mommy. Finding more interest in his friends than in staying home with us. So I’m trying to find balance in rushing around to get everything done, figuring out what’s really important, and giving him some of my time.

And so I feel like I’m just maintaining right now. Not really making any progress on long-term projects. Just trying to keep things under control. And that’s okay sometimes, as long as I find ways to get out of just treading water. It’s fine for the short term, but it can’t stay long term.

I’m looking for little pockets of time to make progress on some projects – like rearranging the living room and moving my desk out of our bedroom. So stay tuned!

What are you working on right now?
