Life can be crazy sometimes can't it? Somehow, in the middle of trying to simplify my life, it seems it just kept getting more complicated! My husband was called back to work in early January. I picked up two extra kids to babysit. We added three new goats, two meat rabbits, and soon to be two lambs, a meat goat, and 100 broilers to the farm! The days are never long enough to get everything I want done.
I've been spending time researching ways to make our lives run smoother and it seems to keep coming back to self discipline! I'm not very good at that! I must take the time to make our menus, grocery shop, prep and cook, clean the house, plant the garden, weed the garden, feed the animals, teach the children, love the husband, cherish the children, nurture my relationship with the Lord, be a good friend, and the list goes on and on. I'm overwhelmed just thinking about it! There's no way I can succeed at this is without self discipline.
Is it even possible to manage all that I have on my plate? Compared to some, it doesn't seem like much. We don't have activities that we run to every day. I'm not on the go. The days just seem to slip by without much accomplished.
Do you have any tips for me? Have you figured out how to accomplish all your needed tasks??
