I've been working on rewriting a book, and it hasn't been easy. My life, like most people's in today's society, is pretty busy. Running here and there and everywhere. So there's such a sense of accomplishment when I finish something. Until the slovenly part of sitting all day sets in and you realize, that book came at a cost.
I have to admit, I'm stunned by how that family on "19 Kids and Counting" maintains peace in such a hectic environment. I will admit homeschooling helps because all I do is pick up and drop off kids, it seems. I know Denise has the same issue, though it's easier now that she has one is in college.
Still, as women, we are prone to doing for everyone else, and we come last. I feel that every time I finish a book and it takes me longer to get back in shape, each and every time. (Sort of like the difference between having child one and having child four!) I really am a good scheduler, but someone's schedule always changes and that makes me have to change my plans.
If you could organize your life into a television family's, real or created, which family would you be?
I'd like to be "19 Kids and Counting" with their calm spirit and process for everything from laundry to dinner. But I think I'm more Marge Simpson.
