I had several motivations when I started this blog a little more than a year ago. I wanted an outlet where I could write insights, joys, & frustrations from my everyday life. I wanted a place where I could share all that I was learning about balancing all the demands of life as a wife, mom, chef, chauffeur, housekeeper, seamstress, etc. Finally, I wanted a place that could help to keep me accountable as I work to get and stay organized in this crazy amazing life.
As 2010 wore on and the demands grew greater and greater, I found myself less and less likely to find time to post. At the same time, I became less and less organized. For the first time in years I was no longer making meal plans. I was no longer writing to do lists. I was basically doing whatever I needed to do to get by, but I wasn't doing anything as well as I could have if I'd been more organized and had a better plan.
I have a lot of goals for 2011, but what I have realized is there is no way for me to accomplish all of my other goals I am going to have to make sure that I get back on top of taking time to make a game plan, and I am going to share this game plan here. This blog will be one source of accountability, as I look for and find joy in the midst of crazy.
