Aaaaahhhhhh! I am so frustrated! I am sorry to lay it all out but I need to vent. Let me start by saying that I adore my kids. I am just so tired of them simply not listening to me. It has become close to impossible for me to get anything outside of this house done anymore. I try my best to hurry when we have to go out, but I think 5 min. in Target to them must feel like an eternity. They won't sit down in the cart or stroller so strangers feel the need to come over and "help" them...embarrassing and a bit frustrating as well, they scream at each other, and they suddenly loose all knowledge of how to get along with the other. I think my voice becomes silent to them, that's what I would like to believe anyways, but I know it is just selective obedience. I feel inconsistent and overwhelmed. I want to exude the true way I feel to them. I am so thankful for the gift of them in my life. I cherish them and would love to pour out my love. I just can't seem to find the line, any line. I know they need discipline but if I left a store every time this occur ed we literally wouldn't even have food on the table. Tell me how this will ever work with three?! Okay, I'm done...thank you listening. I just wanted to throw that out there and if any of you feel led to pray on my behalf it would be so coveted. :)

Oh how I adore the ambiance of fall. The smells, colors, and cozy feelings all excite my senses. It always seems when fall rolls around that it is time to get "organized" again. This is something that I both love and dread. Being organized is one thing that I think I may aspire to my entire life without actually reaching that goal. True, there are many things that I attempt to keep in order, but I never seem to gather enough containers, shelves, or storage as one might need to complete this daunting yet rewarding task. With that said, may my attempt begin once again! As a part of organizing, I plan on keeping my thoughts in some type of line as well. Thus I hope to be blogging much more. Keeping the ideas and contemplations of my brain written down really have always seemed to help me stay grounded and on task. Thank you all for your thoughts as well. It is such and inspiration and pleasure of mine to look into parts of your heads too. Here's to the joys of FALL.
