Happy New Everyone!
I hope all is well. I am one happy mom.....the kids went back to school today!!! I love them dont get me wrong, but......
three kids +
frigid temps so stuck inside
= 1 frustrated tired of yelling "be nice to each other" mom....ugh so frustrated.
SO, what does today mean~
kids go back to school =
PRICELESS......I went to the gym, anthropologie (thanks secret santa), grocery shopping and not once did I have to kneel down and say "YOU BETTER BE NICE OR WHEN WE GET HOME YOU WILL GO TO YOUR ROOM....and threaten to take the wii away and give it to another family.....oh my!!! Am I the only mom that is going through the bickering stage....shish!!!
I dont think my kids get it...being nice to each other that is.....
My oldest gets it,plus he is a boy, but my younger girls, oh my........I have my work cut out for me.....and they are not even double digits yet......EEKS!!!!
So for the new year....I thought what resolution I'd like to have, I am the type to change my lifestyle, not just for a few weeks....so I wrestled with this thought.
Balance.....that is my resolution.....to find balance with myself, family and my art.
I have such a full plate and sometimes all the balls drop.....
more times than not.....
so I am going to try to balance things out....are you laughing~
I know its a tall order, but I think that is where calmness comes from, so I am going to TRY!!
I have been super creative, I think that is because we have been stuck inside and it's been too cold to play. I have a custom order that is almost finished. I thought it was so sweet. This client asked if I would make "love jar" for her friend who has had a hard year and wanted to do something special for her. She has asked all of her friends to write something nice or a lovely memory and when she has a bad day she can pull a thought out to make her "smile"......how grand is this~here is my love jar
Enjoy the day....stay warm friends!! Tell me your resolution......
