Holding ON! (My To-Do List Before Farm)

Aug 26, 2012 | From France to the Farm, Full Time Family, Homeschooling | 24 comments

My plate is so full it has spilled out onto the table, over the edge and out onto the floor.
Thank you, Jesus and TurboFire. I haven’t lost my mind… yet.
Houston, it looks like we have an offer.
So what do we do now?
To Do:
Moving Sale
Finish Christmas magazine
Finish Curriculum planning for home school
Start school up again.
Baby Boy’s first birthday
Film Macaron DVD
Start packing
Not to mention the most intense month of the Turbo Fire schedule yet begins on the 31st.
Oh Yeah… Lest I forget…
Don’t panic.
I saw this on Anne Lory’s (Fiona and Twig) Facebook page (she originally found it on Buckle Up Bitches… sorry for the language).
Let me just say… it resonated.
I may be a little scarce over the next couple weeks.
Just working away at my things and my projects, like you do.
 But yes, I am working on the Branding/Blogging class for you all. It’s a top priority for me. I know you all want to see it.
If you need me and are privy to my phone number, give me a ring or shoot me an email.
All I ask is that you please be patient with me.
It is a process, and I’m doing my best. There’s a lot to do and I’m doing my best to do it.
Love you, girls and men!
There must be a few men reading this blog, right?
Looks like my farm could be right around the corner!
So close.
It feels so close, after all this time and work toward it.
Now, if I could just find it.
There’s so much to do first.
I feel like Little Bo Peep, looking forever for her perfect little sheep!

    Ahhh, the Lord’s timing is perfect…and it will be also with finding your new French Farm too.
    I have an idea for you. Set aside a big box – inside put some paper plates, cutlery, cups, toilet paper, scissors, trash bags, paper towel, diapers/wipes for babes, and anything else you might need immediately on moving day. Let the kids color on it too. With packing tape attach a helium balloon to it so you know which box, in the myriad of boxes has all your essentials. 🙂
    So excited for you! Just think…soon you’ll have your ladies again.

    Oh, good luck, good luck! I can’t wait till you find that farm and give us many, many exciting photographs and reports as you transform it into your own. This is my dream for someday, too. Yours is just a bit closer! Thanks for the reminder that even as dreams are coming true there can be a bit of stress along the way . . . reality check, that!
