hipster DIY

I used to be super-organized.  Hyper-organized, even.  That was when I had to take care of my own stuff only.  Now I have to keep 4 of us organized and I'm failing miserably. I am so sleep-deprived that any down-time I have I sit and stare at the computer, looking to all the crafty hipster DIY simplification & organization sites for answers and I just come to the conclusions that 1. I am not a hipster, 2. I am wasting time looking for answers from hipster sources and 3. I still have a lot of reaching within my own self to do to find my own answers to the things that perplex me.

It's January 1, 2012.  I am pregnant with our 3rd child, and I am super duper tired.  I am relieved that the holidays are over. I'm not sure what's in store for this year except that I will be having a baby in July.  We talk about moving, almost daily.  We're so unsettled in this place it's just kind of a hovering gray cloud over us that won't budge.  I'm too tired to try to tackle the disorganization.  I look to my friends with older kids to remind me that this is a short phase in life.  I am not the most patient, nor gracious, mother of small children.  When this baby is born I'll have a 4.5 year-old, a 2.25 year old, and a newborn.  Lawd help us.

Love, light, and peace to you this 2012.
