Staying Sane

Lately, its become very obvious how busy my life is. I am a fervant believer and follower of Yeshua, Jesus, the Messiah. I own a very busy law firm where I wear all the hats, I'm a newlywed and a new step-mom. His kids are very little so they take extra energy.

I'd like to pause here to say that I never said I wasn't happy. I am deliciously thrilled with my life, and its more of a perfect fairy tale than I ever imagined when I was planning it all out with my friends in second grade recess. Notwithstanding, its still busy. So, everyday I do a few things to keep sanity high on my list.

1. Most days I spend quiet time with the Lord.

2. I make hubby a priority. We have a saying around here. I am a believer first, a wife second and a lawyer third. Hubby is my second priority and I'm his second priority. No matter what! I kill myself getting things done and not wasting time when I'm in the office so that nighttime is just ours. Sometimes work happens at night for both of us. But I work very hard to make 5:00p.m. until bedtime his time.

3. I clean. I'm a cleaning fanatic. When I lived in an apartment I was super messy. Having a home that's yours changes all that. I'm cleaning wash boards, using a toothpick around the edges of the cabinets and comet is my new bff. I will say, though, I think I live in the dustiest house in America. This thing makes bunnies overnight!

4. Blogging. I've starting blogging again because it is such a release for me. I've really missed my blogosphere friends and its time in the day that's just mine.

5. I made the purse mine, and mine only. No one can get in it. Not even my precious hubby. Not even the girls. ;) It gives me my own personal space, which those of you with children know is vital and precious.

What do you do to keep sane?

hugs, love and chihuahua kisses
