I'm going to preface this post by saying that, first of all, I am SO thankful. For so many things. For my precious HEALTHY children. For this sweet little one growing inside of me. For my wonderful husband. For this amazing job opportunity that God has brought to us. But man am I starting to feel a bit overwhelmed these days. I don't feel like I can get a step ahead at all. It's all I can do to not fall behind. Whether it's laundry, groceries, paperwork - there's just so much. Trying to keep the house clean so that it's ready to show at any minute. Struggling to balance all of my normal life stuff, watching an extra child 3x a week, church responsibilities, and yet feeling completely exhausted. It's frustrating feeling as though you need more time, and yet have got to lay down for a nap or you won't make it through the day! Knowing that we have a very busy few weeks ahead of us. We head down to SC next weekend for the official "vote-in" weekend at the church, and we are SO excited! But I know it's going to kick off a whirlwind of activity too - David's first Sunday at the church will be Easter Sunday. Which is a HUGE service to plan and is not that far off. So there's a lot to be done.
We are still praying fervently for our house to sell so that we can all move together at the same time. Otherwise, we'll be facing a period of separation while the kids and I stay here to get the house sold and David starts work down there. Something that we had decided on a few months ago, but as I get more and more pregnant every day, feels more and more daunting to me.
I don't feel as though I can even put very many deep thoughts together lately. I'm trying to focus on the main things - and unfortunately the other things are going to have to wait. I'm okay with that though! I have felt very protective over my kids recently - I think because of all these trips we've been having to make and having to "deposit" them with people. I'm just ready to be settled...but that's a ways off. It's okay though. I'm working on finding contentment amidst the chaos!
