Hello all,

I am really trying to find some sort of balance in my life right now.  The kids, the house, the blog, the yard, and the whatever else.  I have realized although I want to post something everyday, I really don't think I can.  I have two kids ages 4 and 1.  My husband owns his own construction business which I do the books, I am in the primary presidency, I drive for preschool,  and a whole lot of others in the mix.  I know you all are busy too, but I can't let this take over the majority of my life when I have more important things (kids) to attend to.  I am really going to try to post 2-3 times a week.  If I can sneak in more I will.  There is certainly not a lack of ideas, they seem to flowing freely.  I just really need to have a balance of something.  I wanted to do this because I thought it would be a fun thing to do, but to also release some creative juices, and a release from the mundane household tasks I do.  So if you don't see something new, check back I am around.  I love my followers because it makes me keep going.  For awhile there, I thought maybe no one was looking.  Slow and steady wins the race.

How do you all balance your time, kids, blogs, and everything else we do?  Let me know some great ideas.


  1. thanks for stopping by a little lovely! i'll have to try the trick with trim! thanks :)

  2. I do several posts at one time, then I schedule when they are to be sent out. That way I have time to do other things.

  3. Brooke, I just wanted to let you know that I received the purse today, and I want to thank you so much for sponsoring the giveaway. I LOVE the purse, it is the perfect size, look and color, and you did such a fantastic job on it. This is definitely my favorite purse EVER!

    I blogged about it at Frugality Is Free

  4. BTW I know all about the balance issue, and I completely understand where you are coming from. I have three boys myself ages 7, 4 and nine months.

  5. I think you are wise. You definitely want to have balance in the beginning of blogging than trying to step back a year later when you have a lot of momentum and stuff. I have a 4 and 1 YO is tough to balance it all. Good luck with trying to strike a balance it is something we all fall short on.
