scatter-brained mess.

The photo above is a lot like what my mind feels like today: cluttered, crazy, overwhelmed.

I wish I had the time today to write something profound, inspiring and thought-provoking. But, alas, I am buried in a mound of deadlines and moving boxes. I’m literally working from my bed today because we’ve sold nearly all of our other furniture—and while it’s super cozy in this bed of mine, I know the movers are coming tomorrow and I can’t help but feel anxious about the massive list of things that must be done before 7:30am.

I’m so looking forward to things settling down a bit in a few weeks. Until then, please excuse my scatter brain, which is begging me for more sleep (I realize as I type this that my brain is so tired it even forgot to make coffee this morning! Heading straight to the kitchen to remedy that mistake immediately!).

How do you handle when you have a million things to do at once?

    WOW! Great post! With twins, a teenager and a hubby I find myself like that as well. I actually have to “escape” into the bathroom, lock the door behind me and just spend time w/ God. When I walk back out, I am a completely different person. When you get a chance listen to “Uncluttered” by Gwen Smith. That’s what I thought of when I read this today. God bless!

      I totally do the whole escape-to-the-bathroom thing (mostly when I’m at an awkward party or with crazy family members!). Thanks for the “Uncluttered” recommendation!

    I love that you are so honest about where you are at. I too get anxious when all seems to pile up, so this was encouraging to read.

    Every post doesn’t need to be profound, your honest in this post is inspiring to read nonetheless. I completely understand the overwhelming feeling of moving! It can be stressful but just imagine that soon you’ll be back in California and all this stress will be worth it!

      Thank you for that encouragement and reminder, Laura! Thankfully we will be in California soon, and hopefully feel truly settled for the first time since we both graduated from college!!
