Full Week!

One day down. 6 more to go!! This week is the busiest week we have had since school started. We literally have things everyday and some of the days have multiple things! I got really stressed yesterday afternoon just making list after list of what needed to be done! Please tell me I am not the only one that does this! Here is a glimpse at our week:
*Today- Masterson Carnival  (Matthew and I volunteered to help but thankfully we got an early shift) It is also Red Ribbon Week at our schools so everyday there is something to dress in! Today was Jersey Day at my school, and Minion shirt at Jagger's!
*Tuesday-    Super Hero day at my school, Jagger School: any red shirt....  we have boy scouts meeting at night
*Wednesday- church (Jagger has "bible study", and choir. Matthew has band. I am doing a devotion for the youth group and we are doing food.)   Nerd day at school,
*Thursday- Career day or favorite character at school       Night: Mrs Karen (keeps Hudson)  is having a family hayride!
*Friday- Halloween shirts at school... Jagger fall party at school. Hudson fall party. Megan Fall party ;)    Night: Joint birthday party
*Saturday: Halloween/trunk or treat at church
*Sunday: Church and taking youth to a judgement house  Oh, and somewhere in there is time spent with family! ;)
Also, I need to find time to round up things for trunk or treat, and make snacks for trunk or treat! ;)
 I decided after a small panic attack that I would not let this week get the best of me. I was going to breathe and only worry about one day at a time. If things don't get done, it's ok! If my kids don't have the best Halloween snacks, it's ok! If the laundry piles up this week, it's ok! I am only one person and can only do so much!
I feel this is one of those times that God is saying stop and turn to me! When you feel the pressure from the week, stop and give it to me! I know he will carry me through this week and everything will be fine!
So I have to ask. Are you one to buckle under stress of a super busy schedule or can you sail right through it? any pointers?
Hope everyone has a blessed night!
Lots of love...

  1. In the same boat! I usually thrive on a busy schedule, having every minute planned, but lately its a little too busy. With Faith starting kindergarten--I am drowning! Between work full time, grad school full time, Faith's kindergarten activities, PTA responsibilities, and somehow keeping my house's overwhelming! I just keep telling myself: one day at a time. This week is no exception! It's Red Ribbon week here, as well, along with Parent Teacher conferences and book fair. Tomorrow is our conference, plus I volunteered to work the book fair for a few hours. Wednesday is Faith's day for snacks, so that means I have to make them on Tuesday night after our conference. Wednesday is crazy--a day full of meetings at work. Thursday is Trunk or Treat at the Toby Keith foundation OK Kids Korral (like Ronald McDonald House). Plus I have a hair appointment that day after work. Friday is family pictures---which I still have not decided on outfits for the family yet! I have 2 papers due by Monday so I'm hoping I can sit down Saturday between Halloween activities and crank them out! Here's to a busy holiday season--Praying for peace and calm nerves throughout it all!
