no matter how hard i try....

For the past year or so I've really tried to pare down and keep life simple (well, a simple as 4 kids can get). We didn't do sports this year because Rodney still goes to bed at 5:30, and both he and Phoebe are not super awesome to take places at the same time. I didn't do a lot of things and said no to a LOT of things, and here I am... still busy.

I hate being busy.

Like, I joined a book club, which I absolutely am so excited for and I never do a lot of "me" things.

And then I promised my mom I would help her clean out her office and garage.

And the shed is full of all my garage sale goodies that i've been rounding up for months and months and MONTHS and i'm so sick of thinking about a garage sale I might just donate it all to goodwill and be done with it.

Last week I threw away the 8 Christmas cards that I never mailed. They were making me feel guilty, so I just tossed them and it felt so wonderful. (sorry if you never got one, we still love you!)

And I have 3 fundraisers this weekend. THREE! Tonight, tomorrow morning and Monday night. I'm going to be dancing and walking and dancing to raise money for good causes, but I just want to curl up with a book by the fireplace and keep my toes warm under Ty's legs and maybe even fall asleep on the couch.

wouldn't that be a dream?

What are your plans? How do you keep from getting busy?
ty's been busy clearing the field of weeds and the girls love our bonfires
