A day in the life

So.... My life can be crazy busy, but lets get the facts straight....I MISS BLOGGING!

First let me give a shout out to Jaida for being the worlds BEST sleeper! I mean seriously the fact that God has blessed me with a baby that loves to sleep is a life saver! I am absolutely positive that if she didn't nap as well as she does the house would never be cleaned, emails would never be sent, and a that would never have happened!

So thank you Lord for that!

I have had to come to terms with the fact that I cant do EVERYTHING ( I know say whaaaaat?!) Sometimes it can be a curse that from the outside it looks like I am "just a stay at home mom" which in itself can be a full time job. I only say CAN be because seriously Jaida is so easy that the small amount of time that she is awake and I am playing with her is more like a break in my day.

** all you parents with colicky babies or toddlers or multiple children ...dont hate on me... I am by all means NOT sitting around watching TV eating bon bons while she naps.... I DO have a job AND run a business... so i am busy. Trust.

Anyway, back to the blogging.

 What I am trying to continue ( and have been for a few months now) is making new meals for dinner (via Pinterest) at least 5 days a week. My goal in the beginning was to take pics of the steps and eventually blog about that. I haven't gotten that far yet. Sorry.

I made this "weekly dinner menu" out of an old picture frame and some scrapbook stuff:

This is an old actually has the weeks menu on it right now
Tonights dinner is crockpot pulled pork which i made my own BBQ sauce for...without a recipe.

It has actually been SO MUCH easier to make food from Pinterest recipes though! I even create my grocery shopping lists from Pinterest. Love it!
Having ADHD makes it hard to keep focused on one thing for very long so not only am I wanting to blog about that BUT i am starting round 2 of my full wrap treatment.... Think I will document that and blog it as well. I wish that I could set aside times to do everything since I am such a planner but being an administrative assistant, a blogger, a mommy, a wife, a business owner, a crafter etc. Most things come at me last minute and I am forced to "fly by the seat of my pants" ..... I haven't mastered that yet. I want everything to have a time slot and fit into the perfect spot, but Lord knows the second I sit to write a blog, the baby wakes up with a blowout at the same time my phone rings to schedule an apt. all while I am responding to a message on facebook and 3 texts that also came in at the same time, only to turn around and realize that dinner is burning and the laundry is still sitting in the washing machine after 8 hrs. So how do I handle that? I dont...I cry. LOL. Like I said I am a work in progress people so pray for me. ;)
To be honest on days where the above happens I scrap the dinner plans and take the baby in her pajamas to get fast food. Ain't nobody got time to be perfect!
PS: fun side note.... we noticed while looking in the baby monitor this morning that Jaida is learning how to stand. Life is about to get even MORE busy. Cheers!
 Here's to eventually finding time to "do it all."
