Bringing it Back to Basics

You know how sometimes you can get all ambitious?

I’ve got all these ideas about things that I want to do. And I see people do stuff like this ALL the time. They hang shelves and cabinets. They lay tile. They change their own oil and detail their own cars. And they do all these things over the weekend.

Then I get frustrated, because I can’t handle it, and I know that about myself.

So sometimes it's all about bringing it back to what I CAN manage easily. Can I hang pictures and agonize for weeks over which curtains to buy? Yes. Can I do these easy things in the car? Yes.

I’d rather do things I CAN do well, then try to bite off more than I can chew and end up having to call a plumber who says things like “wow, you should NOT have tried that”.

When I want a cool worksheet for the girls, I head over to Teachers Pay Teachers. But when it comes to organizing our year? I do that on my own.
