A Re-examined Life

Hmmm....  Summer is over and I am finally ready to start some new projects!

I didn't intend to take the entire summer off, but that seems to be what happened.
I guess I had taken my life to such a crazy extreme that I just didn't realize how really exhausted I was. Four jobs and several volunteer positions left me little time to do the things I really wanted to do! So, last spring I began to take stock of my life and make some hard decisions.

Although I was mostly enjoying my furniture business and other activities, nothing was getting done at home. We were way behind on this House With Potential and I was tired of living in a half-finished house.

I also was tired of losing touch with some of the people in my life who mean a lot to me. Just finding a day for lunch with an old friend took weeks, sometimes months. And with most of my kids living out of town now, it's a 2 hour drive to visit.

So, one at a time, I evaluated and ultimately quit all of my jobs. I evaluated my ministry and volunteer work as well, but decided most of them were worth my time.

So this year I am devoting my time to two main things: my house and my relationships. And not necessarily in that order!
