Sleep?? What's that?!

Sometimes I wonder when I'll have time to breathe again. And then I think I probably never will. Between working full time, helping my Mom as much as possible with the laundry, housework, cooking, and kids, keeping up with my own interests (piano lessons and practice, reading, my dog, etc.), working out, trying to be a supportive Big Sis by going to the boys' games, playing with the little ones, and encouraging them all to be all that they can be, spending time with God and trying to grow in my relationship with him, keeping up with other relationships like friends and grandparents, and somewhere in there, sleeping a little (yes, it is neccessary!), I just never seem to have enough time or energy to go around. However, I have to admit that I enjoy being busy and seem to have a knack for filling my schedule full to overflowing. The thing is, I don't think it will ever slow down. In the next couple months, I need to start working on my master's degree (online), which will add hours more of work to do each day. And sometime in the future, I want to get married and raise a family - no break there! So, I think I just had better get used to it. Because life is crazy and busy and hard and wonderful and breathtaking (literally!). But I love it.

Single does not equal Miserable!

If all my favorite people have one of these, then I'm going to have one too!! : ) I don't know how much time I will have to do this, but it looks like fun - SO, here it goes! I am an Official Blogger now. And in case anyone is wondering about the title, I wanted to point out that although I definitely want very much to have my own home, husband, and family some day, I am also very happy and fulfilled being single. So, that's why I chose this title. I am VERY blessed with a wonderful family, good job, and many interests that keep me constantly busy trying to figure out how to squeeze it all in!!! So, I am blessed - with singleness, and with so many other things. Thank you, Lord!
