I am not an organized person...

What I want to do:

On the weekend bake several varieties of homemade muffins, and corn and flour tortillas, and freeze them for later use.

What I end up doing:

Buying ultra-processed, sugar filled snacks at exorbitant prices because of lack of “time.”

What I want to do:

Be organized – have a place for everything and everything a place!

What I end up doing:

Searching the house for 15 minutes looking for the car keys I just used the day before!

What I want to do:

Enjoy my various craft and swap projects by working on them a little each day.

What I end up doing:

Mad-dash, manic, snip, glue, sign, post-office, WHEW!

What I want to do:

Wake up early enough to enjoy 30 minutes of quiet and not be rushed through my morning.

What I end up doing:

Hit the snooze at least 3 times, quickly shower, brush on just enough make-up to not be scary, wake Stephen up, search the closet for something not wrinkled, wake Stephen up again, throw very wrinkled shirt in the dryer with a wet cloth, brush teeth, start to make coffee, ask Stephen why he is still sitting on the edge of the bed, get still wrinkled shirt out of dryer and put it on, yell at Stephen to please, “HURRY”, try to fill up coffee travel mug – realize I didn’t finish making the coffee…….

I detect a pattern!

What you do...take wonderful care of your Mom, husband, son and all your friends and relatives.

What you do...always take a moment to listen and offer kindness or a shoulder to anyone who needs you.

What you do...make the world a better place by being in it.

What you do...bless all of us with your friendship and by just being Amy.
