Busy, Busy, Dreadfully Busy

Title taken from Busy, Busy by VeggieTales

Why does it feel like every time I finish one task on my "To Do" list, two more have taken its place? Seriously, I have a lot of things I need to take care of. We're going on vacation next week, and I really want to have a relaxing time (not have a huge list looming in the back of my mind) so I'm trying to knock it out by next Wednesday. Eight days, 437 items. OK, I might be exaggerating a bit, but it is an intimidating line-up. And what do I do when I'm feeling overwhelmed? Procrastinate!! (On a side note, why is it so easy to point out these issues, but so hard to actually change the behavior?) OK, time to be productive and stop whining about it...

Oh, but I did want to share a couple funny sound-bites from the past couple days. On Sunday afternoon, we were heading out to take a dip in the pool, and our daughter was putting on her swimsuit. Well, trying to. She was holding it upside down, and she exclaimed, "Hey! What happened to the other strap?!" Too funny! After I stopped laughing, I helped her solve the mystery :) After swimming a bit, the kids decided to hop on the swings to warm up. Well, our son started getting some momentum and then announced that he was "swinging in Chinese." After much questioning, we still have no idea what he meant, but it was still funny!

OK, I'm really getting off the computer now...

Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from Him.
Trust in Him at all times, O people;
Pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge.
Psalm 62:5,8

swinging in Chinese? How fun is that?

I also procrastinate. I think it is a prerequisite to blogging.

Did you finish the 437 items yet?
