balance

So this morning I was running around trying to complete my to do list. Then the kittens woke up. So I took them out side. There we were just sitting on a blanket in the front yard soaking up some rays. It felt so nice. That was when it me. I am out of balance. I do not know how it happened but it did, and I am now ready to get back in balance.

I have made a list of things that all of the children will do when they get home from school. Why am I running around trying to bust my ass when all of my children can pitch in and help out.

Balance is good. Before I start to write my next to do list I am going to put down some me time. I don't care if that is playing with the kittens or taking a long bubble bath. I need some me time.

I went and talk to the person in charge of summer school and I was surprised by her answers to me. Nikki can take Health in summer school any time she wants. It does not have to be this year. If I wait until Nikki is 16 then I can enroll her at Bringham Young University where she can take this health class. She will get both high school and college credit for it! So it looks like next year Nikki is going to start taking health class. Why does the system not advertise this stuff? Why are so many high school students taking all of these high school classes and not getting "college" credit for them? I guess that would be way to easy.

Tomorrow I need to go back to the school and ask a few more questions, and then we need to look into getting some financial aid (because it is $250 for a class!) and then we are going to start enrolling the girls in college classes right now!

I have gotten done everything that I had wanted to get done. So I am going to go do some sewing and then I will cook dinner. I am not going to get out of balance again. Life is to short to run in circles!

OH one last thing. The girls got a card from their "grandmother" the other day saying thanks for sending the flowers and for the cards. The girls looked at each other and then handed the card tome. What the heck? Does she think that the girls did all of this on their own? Oh well, no worries on my part.

Love your graphics!  Don't you love those aha moments?!  I'm sure you will have some dissention in the ranks but it will be worth it for they will get a less stressed momma out of the deal!

You know, I do the same thing.  Suddenly I realize that everything has gotten out of whack, and usually I realize that I am doing way too much, instead of delegating.  I guess we all do that sometimes.   Glad you were able to get everything straightened out about Nikki's classes, and that she'll be able to go on her trip without worrying about that.

That is surprising that the school doesn't advertise those classes. Espescially when they're good for the kids. Geesh! Yes...you need balance. Doing so much for everyone...now it's your turn! :o)
