Starting Over

For the four readers that I have (thanks Mom & Annette!) :) I plan to begin posting again. I've spent the last 9 months trying to adjust to being a working mom. Trying to find my groove, get organized, learn how to accomplish everything in 24 hours (I just don't think it's possible) and still maintain my sanity hasn't been an easy task. I've spent many a day frustrated, tired, and in tears but I know that God has a plan for my life and for my family. I know this season is but a short chapter in the book He is writing for us.

The long and short of the last 9 months is that I work an hour away from the house so we have enrolled the kids in a Catholic school that is 4 miles from my office. We have just begun football season and The Coach is keeping 14-15 hour days!! He is very tired but loves his new head coach and loves his new school. It is such a huge change from being in the urban district he came from! We went to a scrimmage this morning and the stands were full! Last year, the kids and I would have been one of - maybe - a dozen people in attendance, so this is a big difference even for us! Everyone is just so exicted about cheering on this new team.

I look forward to sharing the craziness of our life with my family, irl friends & my stranger-friends through this silly little blog and would love to hear from you!

(by the way, I have made time to read a few blogs every day - it helps keep me sane :) - I know I haven't commented much (if at all) but it's been a blessing to me nonetheless. Thanks for your consistency! You never know who's reading and is feeling encouraged by your words.)

Christie!!!

I was so excited to see you pop up in my Google Reader tonight! You are so right -- it just isn't possible to accomplish everything (and still get a little bit of sleep) each day. It is all about prioritizing and it sounds like you have been doing an amazing job with everything you have to do right now. I am so glad to hear that the Coach loves his new job -- sounds like so much fun!

Well, I am off to bed so I can hopefully get off to a good start for our first day of school tomorrow. God bless you and your family!

Keep your head up Christie! You are correct -- there is a time and a season unto everything and this is definitely a season!

Just sayin' "hey"! Found you on a list of Catholic blogs and wanted to let you know that I'm praying for all my Catholic bloggy sisters out there who struggle and rise every day.

God bless your journey!
