...as a matter of fact....life has been a bit out of control the past two weeks. 

The signs are all there. Increasing number of folks are saying, "I don't know how you do it all" and/or "Are you ok? You don't look well."  Neither are good signs. One leads me to evaluate if I'm trying to be super-woman again and the other....well... I'd quit eating and my sugar was tanking quite often last week.  Yep, it's been TWO very hectic, incredibly productive weeks.

We've had 6 dental appointments, 2 birthdays, piano and Japanese lessons. I've taught on marriage, taught 4 sessions on James (2 a week), hosted a friend from the states who did a major PWOC event and a Sunday event... planned and ordered quite a bit for our upcoming local PWOC retreat....and really....it would have been "busy but doable" if I'd had a car. ::snort:: It was TOUGH being ME in a one car family. In the next couple of days I'll attempt to update the blog with posts and photos of the various events.

I realized how busy I'd been when I came here to print out the last FOUR weeks of the blog for Mom Mary....and realized I'd not blogged in 10 days. ::snort::

For now let me say how HAPPY I am to have my little Prairie Joy back.  I'm THRILLED to be nearly done with dental appointments (3 more this week).  I'm starting to breathe again and I never want to go back to a frenzied lifestyle I used to live. I'm looking for onsen partners before I begin the March traveling schedule.

I discovered in the past two weeks, at 47 I CAN still do it - but I don't want to. ::snort:: I need self-care before I crash. LOL

Choosing Joy!

Thankful you realized where you were at before you crashed. Praying for you & your family daily - you are such a blessing in my life.

I know exactly what you mean: I can but I don't want to. And maybe I can, but it's a lot tougher recovering from it! :)

I'm also enjoying a more realistic pace these days! Turning 45 something will do that to you (LOL)... or it did for me anyway. Now I only say yes to the things I REALLY want to do and no to everything else and I don't feel guilty about it either :)
