Girls Write Out
Wednesday, December 14, 2011

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.

One of the families on "Parenthood". I love how close the entire extended family is, how supportive and in each other's business--in a good way--they are.

My family was that way, I sure miss having all my grandparents close and that my kids don't have that. It really does make a huge difference. Jel, night John Boy!

I'm with y'all on the Walton's. I love the close family. I've missed that since we moved to GA all those years ago. Except for our youngest son, everyone lives in TX or CA. And Kristin, I'm a bit more like Marge myself. My plans easily get upended, unless I put my foot down.

I'm still learning how to do that: put my foot down. LOL
