Oh The Places You'll Go...

...have you read it? I'm sure you have. There's a line that is sticking out to me.

and remember that life's a great balancing act

It's true right? Life is a balancing act. And right now? I'm not so good at the balancing part. I'm kind of sucking.

Do you remember the movie One Fine Day, with the FINE George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer? I remember her saying something about having all of these balls in the air, and that she couldn't have anyone help her or some of those balls would come crashing down. That's me. I have so much STUFF, so much going on, and nobody can help me, because really? It's all my stuff. But I feel kind of at a breaking point, like I need to either give some 'balls' away, or else I'm going to drop them all.

I have a lot to blog about, including the best birthday surprise of my life! A trip to Washington for the weekend. It was glorious. Seriously. Then the return home to my darling boys, who then got Strep Throat (FROM CHUCK E CHEESE), and then Thanksgiving, and then a lazy holiday weekend.

But right now, I need to go attack some of my 'balls' and learn to balance a little more. Bear with me.

Ugh sorry about all the balls... this time of year sure brings that out as well. All the stuff to take care of and buy and do on top of just pain old taking care of our kids and family. So busy! But YAY YAY YAY for your trip! That is so amazing and like you said, the best gift ever. I wondered what it was when you mentioned it on fb the other day.

I totally Lol to you needing to "attack some of your balls" lol.
But it's such a good way to put it. People so easily assume if you have alot going on, it's because you've taken too much on, that you can put things to the side, or get someone else to lend a helping hand. But sometimes it's more than that, and it's not that easy.
*hugs* If i can help in any way lmk. Even if you just want someone to chat with :)
And Goodluck!
