Being a mom of 3, wife to the military, the hubby is getting ready to head back to Shift Work, (not fun, not fun at all), Manager of More Than A Memory Scrapbook Store, Owner of R Barut Photography, a Basketball CHEERleader, teacher to all 3 kids, (did I tell you my Little Izzy can add? It's so cute, she adds her fingers and her toes to combine the two numbers! I am so impressed, I smiled so hard, my cheeks hurt!), my oldest on the other hand is having a challenging time in 7th grade, all of his core classes are in Enrichment Programs and there came a point where I expected him to take this as a breeze like he has always done. But I see now he needs us to help him a little more after schools, the classes are indeed tougher, and there seems to be no room for error. A chef at the Barut Household, a Boo-Boo kisser, a Tickle Monster, a Scrapbooker.. the list goes on and on.. I'm not sure how I get through my days sometimes.
Today was just one of those days, where it IS my day OFF, but WORK was on my brain! It was a quiet day, from 6am-7am then it was filled with phone calls and emails. My mind is constantly planning, creating, and envisioning.. it stems anywhere from dinner till the next week, to hanging up more pictures on my wall, to putting up snowflakes window cling ons, to wondering how my mom is enjoying Las Vegas, to going back home to Hawaii, where all is sunshine surrounded by family. But somehow, I got this balancing act under control for now. I did take last week off, I finished nearly 3 albums plus a gift as one of them.. so it's all good:)
Well, here's a little reminder that Life is All Good.. Each day is truly a blessing. No matter how busy this life takes us, you can count on me knowing where to stand my ground.
