As I pause to reflect on my life, I realize it is still a juggling act of tossing items into the air, catching them as they fall, and periodically, dropping one here or there. I’d like to think I can do everything, but I know that’s not true. It’s more important to learn to prioritize and occasionally, let some items fall to the side. It doesn’t mean I won’t pick them up again later because often, that’s exactly what I do.
Yes, still juggling!
Ball number one has been in the air since October 25. It is something from my personal life that I’d rather not share with the world. Suffice it to say, it is over for most practical reasons, and I’m relieved about that. That’s one ball I can toss aside.
Ball number two: Moving day! Make that days…have come and gone. I cleaned out the old place, cleaned up the new place and moved in record time. I have a few boxes yet to unpack, but nothing major, and all of the rooms have been set up and prepared for regular use. Ball number two can also be tossed aside.
Ball number three: Promote for author Tracy Lawson’s book release blog tour. I just finished preparing my post for Ms. Lawson today. Stop by this Friday to see her author spotlight on my official author website: http://slwallace.com/ Be sure to sign up for the Rafflecopter giveaway too.
Ball number four: Home projects! I’m looking forward to tossing these balls into the air because staining my new furniture to a nice golden hue and building my daughter an art center will be so much fun and rewarding. In case you have a young child who loves art and an old crib with a drop down side, here’s an idea for you! (This image just got me started, and my imagination took it from there. I’ll write about and share my own photos once I’ve completed my project.)
Ball number five: The MKSP Sizzlin’ Summer Book Bash. Sadly, this ball had to be dropped. I was supposed to help host, but with the move and ball number six…something had to go. I still plan to attend the event though, couldn’t pass up that much fun!
Ball number six: Biannual vacation with extended family. I’m sure I’ll have an upcoming blog post dedicated to this one soon. Fun stories always come out of spending time with my fun family. That’s true for most though, right? Right???
Let’s take a tally: Two balls tossed aside, two in progress, one to begin very soon, and only one dropped. Not too bad!
