I'm a marshmallow......

Oh man, I have such a hard time sometimes! I am so eager to get this routine I designed underway. I KNOW it will make a significant difference in my life and yet, why haven't I started it yet? 

Late nights, sick nights/days, extra homework due, there are so many other reasons/excuses. I realize today that I am waiting for the perfect time to start this and get it going and yet....there is not going to be a perfect time. So... once again, I am going to recommitt myself tonight to getting all this going this week. No more excuses. I'm off to bed so I don't settle down too late (in case of middle of the night visitors like the two I had last night) I can do this and the time is now!

Routines under way....

Think these little people are ready to buy into my routine?
Having a large family is filled with so many blessings. I never imagined how great this would the same time, getting organized and keeping organized has truly been my greatest challenge. I have had to learn to be ok with visitors stopping by and the house being in disarray. I have been working very hard on a routine that I introduced to my family yesterday. We will be implementing it this afternoon and I am really excited to see how it goes. I have a feeling this is just what I have been needing to pull it altogether. The kids are so much more able to pitch in and help out. They can help each other out which is really nice too. With that being said, it is still a constant trying to keep everything around here from unraveling which can happen in an instant! ;o) I am going to work hard over the next month to keep on this routine no matter what. goes!

This night is so peaceful. We have had a very busy couple of weeks with many family members sick with colds, sore throats, strep among other things. Today was a crash day for me. I am quite exhausted and not motivated! (and if you could see the house right now, being motivated would be a good thing!) Well, the house will get cleaned tomorrow. I am enjoying a bit of time tonight surfing the internet and just reflecting on the gifts of life that have been given to me to raise. I love each one of my children so much. They are so amazing and teach me so many things. They fill my heart with love and gratitude and I feel so humbled right now to be their mother. Being a mother was something I wanted to do for as long as I can remember. I never ever imagined it to be as fulfilling, humbling, satisfying, enriching and fun as it has been.  Wow! What a blessing to be called mother by my seven, dear, precious children. I LOVE YOU ALL WITH ALL MY HEART!

Now, while I'm feeling all emotional, I want to express my love for my husband. He really is the very best friend ever. I love him with all my heart and soul and am forever grateful we will spend our eternities together. He understands me like no other. He is the most compassionate, loving person I know. I never could have ever imagined 32 years ago when we started to date in high school, how much I would grow to love and cherish this man. He is a wonderful father and our children look up to him so much. He is so much fun to be around and his spiritual side is inspiring and uplifting in every way. I LOVE YOU BRYCE, MY ONE AND ONLY!
