Get the idea? I am overrun with stuff
I have a feeling the next two months will try my patience. And that's okay. Regardless of the chaos happening all around us, my job is still clear. Meals and laundry still take priority on my list of things to do. Stories will still be read. Schoolwork? Ah, yes. Taylor's Lego skills will be used constructively. I am recruiting him to help me put my cupboards together. Gord has the kids doing lots of odds and ends in the house. They are learning to work, and that is a quality that will serve them well all their life. I still struggle with putting 'The Books' away for a bit, yet I honestly cannot handle everything right now. I am thankful that my two oldest are proficient readers and work well independently so they can still squeeze some work in. This season will be over in a bit. There is an end in sight to the messy schedules and unplanned trips to town for house stuff. In the meantime people are still welcome for coffee if they can handle the mess around them :) On the bright side, the dust no longer bothers me!
