Who's Keeping Track?

by Patricia Cates

Who's Keeping Track?

Apparently not me. Life is busy. I completely forgot it was my turn today to blog for the beloved MMW until...well....just now! It's not because of NaNoWriMo....although I wish it were. Writing opportunities have been scarce. Would love to hear more success stories from our fellow writers!
My personal list of excuses is long:
  • My oldest daughter is getting married next week. 
  • Computer issues from downloading Windows 10 have sucked up hours of my time over the past week. No bueno.
  • I started home schooling my 8th grader last week and its been an adjustment. A huge adjustment. We got our stuff last minute and the learning curve for the program and software is humbling since I have a million and one other things to do. More on that later.
  • Did I mention that my baby is getting married in 8 days? Our temple trip with her was wonderful and it was a beautiful day. Very busy weekend traveling. 
  • I wish Pinterest didn't exist and that potlucks were in vogue. I'm in charge of transforming a basketball court into an event center. This is new to me as I am a convert.
  • I've been fighting a cold/flu.
  • As the "mother of the bride" I sadly have no sisters, no aunts, no cousins, no grandmas or sisters-in law to help, My mother-in-law was recently in a terrible car accident and is just now using a walker so I cannot ask her for help. I thankfully have my mom and she is going to help make cookies. 
  • I may have gone completely nuts.

I'm so very grateful for my awesome visiting teachers and ward family right now!

Praying for patience and calm because more things keep coming up. I wish my husband were here to help but he is working 13 hour days, six days a week, and is three hours away. We are glad for the work but life is crazy.

I've got to run because school is starting...and then I need to run up to Idaho Falls and return some dresses that didn't fit and go to a craft store. It just started snowing...luckily its only an hour drive there. Wish me luck.

  1. So many busy, but mostly good things in your life! I've had phases like that where I couldn't think straight, there was so much going on. I'm reading this late, so I'm sure things have calmed down by now. Thanks for sharing, though. We all need to know we are not alone in the BUSY of life!
