I recently have watched the status updates of one of my high school friends build a house in Boise, move in, and three days later post that everything is unpacked and all the frames are on the walls.
To which I say . . . What the ?!!
And it's not just unpacking, setting up new banking accounts, bill pays, insurances, and closing all the old ones. I want to fundamentally change the routine, schedules, priorities, and etc. I want to be more consistent using essential oils with Ellie and our home every day to help with her attention and focus issues and keep her out of a doctors office and medication. I want to use EOs to make my own cleaning products, mouthwash, shampoo, deodorant, perfumes, etc. I want to change what we eat and the way we eat. I want to change how we do chores and our positive and negative consequences. I want to know where things are in my home - to get rid of things we don't need and simplify. I want to serve others with a weekly temple trip and volunteering at the school and online as a speaking partner for an international BYUI student. And I want to find time to start reading and reviewing and blogging and going back to publish blog books. When I look at it all I'm overwhelmed. But I have to remember -
