Sometimes the craziness is caused by a MAJOR life change - having a baby, moving, changing jobs...
But mostly it's those LITTLE changes that throw us OFF, leaving us feeling out-of-control and overwhelmed -
things like: an extra church assignment, sick kiddos, , even husbands getting some extra time of work. (don't get me wrong - we love our hubby's home - but it does require a change in our routines)
That's when we must switch our gears to SURVIVAL MODE!
In Survival Mode we must:
- Cut way back - say no to anything and everything you can!
- Focus on the bare minimum that needs to be done (rely on your MM's! Zone Defense and deep cleaning can wait!)
- Lower expectations!
- Call in extra support- pay a teen to help, ask friends to watch kids - even an hour or so will help!
As you can tell from my lack of posts - I'm in survival mode. I'll post as I can! Follow Me on Twitter (see side-bar) for organizing reminders!
Have a super day!
