I've started four different posts today. One about potty training (BIG NEWS: Sydney has had multiple dry nights and yesterday she pooped in the toilet--serious cause for celebration). One about Lent (the results of not eating chocolate or junk food? Massive migraines from the caffeine/sugar withdrawal). One about the Oscars (Yay for Martin! And yay for Jennifer Hudson, but that poor girl and her red dress! It so clearly didn't fit her, and I was nervous just watching her dance on the stage fearing that those little cherry tomatoes weren't going to make it through the song.) And one about my trip to the fabric store to get material for curtains (I had lunch with the always fabulous Diane, and after seeing all the lovely decorating projects she's got going, I was totally inspired to make curtains).
But in the end, I can't get any of those things into a coherent post because my mind is being pulled in so many different directions. Mostly I just feel like I need to re-evaluate my priorities, and figure out what I should give up, and what I should keep, and what I should give up even though I really want to keep. I'm finding that it's hard knowing how to balance parenting,
and mom grouping,
My head is so noisy these days with everything that's going on. I don't want to give anything up, because all those things are important to me. But I can't figure out how to do them all well. I'm even fretting about this post because I could have written it better, if only my mind was a little clearer.
Of course, it doesn't help that I'm sleep deprived, and so I don't really have a good perspective about anything. Something has to change though. Something.
