It's only Tuesday...

It's only Tuesday and I'm already starting to dread the weekend. I'm dreading it because it is filling up fast. With playdates, and birthday parties, and many more activities. Ugh.

I'm not an anti-fun-mom. I'm really not. I love for my kids to have play-dates, and I love birthday parties, but I also love my weekends and I love family time. I'm a homebody through and through and when I have a weekend that is full of activity and little time at home, I start to feel a bit claustrophobic. And that is exactly how I'm feeling right now--claustrophobic. And have I mentioned that it's only Tuesday!?!

So what do I say "no" to? I'm actually praying about it because I don't know. All of the things on tap for the weekend are good things and involve people we love. Do I suck it up and just do it all knowing that it's just this one weekend that is particularly crazy? Or do I go with my gut, say no and guard our family time, ensuring we all get some needed rest, but risk hurting some feelings. I really don't know. You can pray for some wisdom to come my way.

Mer, I most certainly will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Homecoming weekend is this week followed by a trip to NC to visit Mom. I've done some juggling of my schedule but still trying to make the best choices to care both for myself and those I love.

Oh, I can so relate to this post. I'm a homebody too and struggle sometimes to have my children involved in things. But, balance is what I'm always praying about.

Thank you for telling me about the Chai Latte. I will try it.

I'm right there with you. I've been trying to figure out if library story time is really worth all the effort and frustration. = ) I'll say a prayer for your weekend plans.
