Oh where oh where has Dori gone oh where oh where could she be!!
The days seems to just scream by and then again I haven't posted anything. Which I just hate, because I just love to read everyone's blog and wonder where are they when they haven't posted for one day and then here I am not posting for a million years. So after I read Memory's post and she's so busy I knew that I couldn't wait any longer. Well that was 3 days ago :). But now it's Friday! I treasure Fridays so much. It's the only day I don't have to worry about what I'm teaching in the morning. I have to make my seminary lessons first priority during the day or I don't have anytime to do them and then it's just bad! I've learned so much about myself in these past 7 months teaching..At first I use to have a break down..bad breakdown..about once a week.. you know the kind "I have too much to do" cry, cry and cry somemore(how embarrassing but I know you all have them too!). About January I came to the conclusion (with my Heavenly Father help) that my family and seminary lessons where my two priorities.. nothing else.. not the kitchen floor, not laundry, not the bathroom,not babyshowers,parties..those things should never..unless the toilet was clogged...take priority. And when I did that and left it in the Lords hands to help me get everything done it some how has. Not always exactly when I would have preferred it to but it got done... usually on Fridays:).

So today has been great, the sun is shining and it's warm outside, I've cleaned my room, the kitchen, put all food back in the pantry (Longstory..I'll post a picture),cleaned the bathroom,started the laundry. It's still amazing to me how much I've changed though. My list of things to do is still a mile long for the day and I know that I will not get it done but I can some how stay calm inside and just know that someday it all might get done but if it doesn't today there's always next Friday!

Saturday night one of the kids climbed the shelves to reach a bag of chips..and it all came crashing down!

Wow, it sounds like the Lord has really made you stronger. That is so neat. Yes, i admit I have those breakdowns quite often. Sounds like you are doing great. I don't know how you do it all, but it seems like you really have your priorities straight.

You are an inspiration. Your words gave me encouragement, motivation, and reminders of what is most important and that with the Lord's help, I can do more than I could do alone. Does He do laundry? Michael has been without a clean church shirt for two weeks now! :-) Oh, and I LOVE the picture of the shelves. Eek! Hopefully the climber child didn't get hurt!

Nice to hear from you again!! I'm glad that seminary is going well for you! And that is quite the picture of food all over the floor! I could just cry/laugh for you!!

Meredith said...

ok, did you laugh or cry when you saw that pantry???

also, i don't even have half as many kids as you do and i don't get anything done! you're an inspiration with the early morning seminary, everything else in your life, and your five kids are AWESOME! so you two must be doing something right.

and you do it all with a sense of humor! that is something i have always admired about you, and i'm working on getting one of my own...any tips?:)
