It's been rocky...

How has your new year treating you? I wish the best for each of you. So many are going through so much right now. Us included. Seems that everything comes to a halt after New Year's. Like, a SCREECHING halt. Everyone is in a financial coma from all of their holiday spending. Maybe they are ill. It could be a lot of different things. One thing I do know is that God always comes through no matter what. It may not be when you want it too and you lose patience. You feel like there is no hope. But there is.

We are trying to get back into the groove with school and housekeeping etc. My daughter likes to draw and oh my goodness there is a ton of drawings everywhere. She's pretty good so it's extremely hard to pick which ones to throw out. There must be another way. What do you do?

I'm working on my Lilla Rose business and taking different trainings to better improve my business. It's really fun. I hope you will be able to experience it too someday. Stay tuned for a special announcement on Friday. You won't want to miss it.

Happy New Year, new start

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. We really enjoyed our break. During that time I always reflect on the year and I get sad sometimes. Why didn't I do this or that? Why did I choose to do this? Why did I choose not too?  A lot of whys. My children will be another year older. So will I. So will my husband. My anxiety usually comes back at this time of year too. Work slows down and I go into a panic because we still have bills to pay. We can't really save up for a vacation like most people do and get to spend time with family. Then I decided to just STOP!!! How was I benefiting anyone by doing this to myself?

One thing I did was GET BUSY with something. About 5 months ago I started my own business. It was slow going so I began thinking of ways to make it more profitable. I also began to declutter the books and sell the ones we weren't using anymore. Then I had some extra money to expand my business or better something.  If there's clothes or toys that are still in decent shape, SELL IT!!! It might not be a ton of money but it's better than it just sitting around collecting dust, RIGHT? Same with homeschooling too. If the curriculum you bought at the beginning of the school year isn't working anymore, SELL IT and find something that does. You can use eBay, facebook groups or local homeschooling groups. Someone might be looking for that very book or teacher's guide and couldn't afford it new. You're helping them and yourself. It's a wonderful feeling. Try it!!

Today we went to Ikea. Have you heard of that store? Have you been there before? I went once a long time ago but my husband and kids have never been. Shockingly enough it was his idea (facepalm). We even went when it was still daylight (another shocker). This place is huge. There were at least three levels. The showroom part had everything displayed how one might have it in their home. Couches, dining room, office, bedrooms. It was really neat to see and get ideas. There were sections with dishes, closet organization, anything you could possibly think of for the home. We were really impressed. But then some of us started to get that overstimulated feeling. Sometimes even a big store can do that. My husband started to say things like "we could just look at it online, shipping is probably even free." I didn't think anything of it at the time, I was enjoying my time there dispite some incidents. Those are just normal things when shopping with the family that I just faze out most of the time. If I let it all bother me I wouldn't enjoy myself and would not ever want to do it again. There was a time I was that way about a lot of things. I didn't want to do things because of this or that. Mainly I wanted to do things by myself. I am an introvert, have anxiety issues, a son on the spectrum and a social butterfly, talk non stop daughter to deal with each time I venture out solo. When my husband comes with us it's a lot different and I can enjoy myself more because I have a little bit of help. Not much but just an extra set of eyes can make a difference. When we were married before kids we shopped together all the time. Today reminded me of that. It was a nice day. I hope we have more of them.

So...have you gotten all your shopping done for the holidays? Or have you just started? I am am a planner but for some reason I wait last minute for things like deadlines. I don't know why, maybe I like the rush I feel to be frantic. I'm sure a lot of you do that too. I always tell myself "This year I will be more organized " I do try but often fail miserably. I used to be really hard on myself. I have anxiety issues so that just added to my already boggled mind. Not fun. Hopefully someday I will learn.

And how about those kiddos? Do your children have extreme bounds of energy this time of year? Oh my!!! I can open an indoor obstacle course. Lord, help me!! Happy thoughts, happy thoughts!!!
