Will it ever stop?!?


Do you ever feel like your life is a carousel ride? You keep going up and down and round and round. Every year it seems to keep getting faster with no sign of slowing down. It always seems like there is more to do everyday then I have time in the day to do those things. I keep waiting for it to stop and it never does. Sometimes I feel so dizzy that I want to puke. Between taking kids to school, soccer, karate, activity days, birthday parties, cleaning the house (right!), grocery shopping and sick kids (those never happen, do they?) when am I supposed to squeeze time in for the yard and church callings never mind trying to find me time, I am exhausted. Or maybe that was from the lack of sleep? It is hard to find some calm in this stormy sea of life, but I am trying. Any clues as to where to find the off lever on this carousel called life?

This takes me back to a "My Turn On Earth" song.....the world spins round like a (We'll say merry-go-round though I think the words are ferris wheel)some time you're low and sometimes you're high ... but even way down you can never forget the feeling you feel when you're touching the sun...Anyway, there is no point to my comment. It's one crazy ride isn't it?!

I don't have any advice, since I can't slow my own down, but I can add one more task: send me an invite to your family blog (when you have a min). I emailed you my email, but in case you didn't get it, it is andreamikkel@gmail.com . Thanks.
