I have come to the conclusion that I can not do it all. I can do anything just not everything (at once) and I need to choose what captures my heart, not necessarily my eye. So, for me, that has been facebooking (because it is like an online social cafeteria), cleaning (or trying to), cooking, playing with my kids, teaching them responsibility by staying in behind them while they do "chores", and teaching preschool. "Why would I teach preschool?" you may ask; it's simple: I love teaching! I have been trained in that field and I truly enjoy it. It's also an outlet for me as I enjoy researching and planning stuff. We are plannng to homeschool our children, so I had a brief time where I could serve other children and there became a need at the boys' preschool/ mother's moring out. It has left time for very little extra curricular activities for myself. When you have 4 kids, it's time consuming enough. Throw in a part time job (no matter how few hours), it makes things crazy. I really do not know how moms work full time and balance it all! Hats off to them! And I will admit, it's easy for me to lose focus and make certain things more important that they should be. I am so thankful for my husband who not only lets me stay home (even though we would benefit from the extra money), but encourages me to do so. I'm the type of person who would lose the balance in the wrong direction.
So, it's been about 6 months since I've posted. I better get busy- tomorrow ;).
