A Week in the Life...

Is it just me or is the pace of life picking up a bit? And by a bit, I actually mean WHOA NELLY!

Between preparing for a dance recital, kicking off the spring volleyball season and getting ready for TAKS tests, my girl is super busy these days. Oh, and she has birthday parties to attend, a new season of children's choir, church outings and friends to see.

That doesn't even take into consideration that Rambo is (unknowingly) about to have surgery tomorrow. Nothing serious - just a little, you know, snip snip. Or that Dave worked five 12-hour shifts in a row last week, had one day off and then picked up again this week. Or that I'm trying to get back on the Zumba bandwagon after two (necessary) weeks off in order to heal from severe allergies.

And, y'all, even with all of this activity each member of my family continues to insist on three square meals a day. Who could have known?

Though I realize it sounds like I am - at best - whining and - at worst - complaining, neither is actually true.


Because I love this hectic pace of life. It's never busy, requires multitasking to the hilt and endless to-do lists that are color coded (side note: checking things off a list is one of my all-time favorite things) in order to stay organized.

Let me repeat, I LOVE IT.

Soon enough the girl will be gone while Tonto and I are left to figure out what to do with the rest of our lives. Lord, have mercy, can you even imagine how many dogs we'll have by then??!?!

So all of that to say, life is good. Even when it's not. And sometimes it doesn't allow for fun photos because this mom is overwhelmed with getting everything done.

But I much prefer this to the alternative. :-)

The Lord has done great things for us and we are filled with joy!
Psalm 126:3
