finding balance

I have spent the better part of the last week and the weekend figuring out the balance in my life. Trying to make sure that I enjoy the small things and not put so much pressure on myself to be and do and go.

First step is thisI am gonna be present in my kids lives. I love being at home - just LOVE it. I get to be here to pick Bayleigh up and I get to be with Layne as he grows and starts becoming quite the little man. Gotta balance my time with my kids.

Also thisYep, a budget. I hate the thought of being so rule bound and sticking so heavily to a budget. But, I have learned that that is exactly what I need. I have to have strict rules with regards to money. So, I am finding balance and coming up with a budget for us. Gotta start saving more and paying down debt. Then, I gotta stick to it. :)

Creating balance by creating art
A page about our first family vacation last year to the lake. We had a blast and I am actually almost done scrapping all of the pictures. That will be a first for me. You can click on it to see it bigger. Had fun creating that page with the June Lifetime Moments kit.

In other news....I will hear about LRS by October 1st. So, talk about email box stalker. hahaha I swear I have checked my mail more in the past 2 days than I have in the past month.

That's all for now. Gonna go tidy the house while the boys are asleep. Then, we are making a Walmart trip.

Happy Monday!
