ack! i'm so sorry for the bits of silence yesterday and today.
it's been the busiest days around here. the kinds where i'm reminded of truths about myself that always seem to be the most forgetful kinds of truths. the ones that i need a refresher course on from time to time. like how i can't do it all. or at least, i can't do it all the way i'd like for it to be done. and sometimes, priorities need to be adjusted. it's hard to remember that the perfect mama, homemaker, career gal/blogger, daughter, sister, friend doesn't exist. i can be the coolest mama and still be the worst/ messiest/ most disorganized housekeeper in the world (which i totally am)...have a schedule full of projects and clients and still forget to call home to my parents for days on end.
the important trick is learning how to laugh off "dropped pins" just as much as learning how to juggle them. to surround yourself with understanding folks that know your heart. to pick up slack by letting go of other ends.
it's also learning to see when your greatest strengths overextended become your greatest weakness (something matt has taught me)
so yesterday was spent recharging and refocusing..
and it was spent cleaning the kitchen.
and even though i'll most likely always be a little frazzled and messy and disorganized, i was reminded of another truth about myself: scrubbing cabinets can be therapy. and sometimes a clean house can make you feel like the coolest mama in the world.
