picture me {im}perfectly.nothing done

i am having a very difficult time getting
anything productive done.
i find the more children i have,
the less i actually accomplish 
from my to-do list 
throughout the day.

a sweet friend of mine recently asked me,
“when do you do anything else?
seriously, i’m asking.”

and now i’m answering her:
“i don’t.”

while our little L has been sleeping
at night
(the Lord gets the praise on that one 
because i cannot take any credit for that)
his daytime naps have been 
shrinking into near oblivion.
which means my time to be productive 
is nearly non-existent these days.

and you may wonder what i do after 
the children are in bed at the end of the day?
my answer: absolutely nothing.

i do not have the energy to 
once they’re quietly in their beds.

maybe someday i will. 
(i sure hope so)
but these days, 
i’m just glad to make it to 7pm 
without falling apart.

i have given up doing 
a lot of things that i would like to
and i just try to at least accomplish 
all of the things that i need to get done. 
and even that’s hard.

picture me {im}perfectly
is a weekly project to reveal that we don’t have it all together.

i will post a 
picture me {im}perfectly
blog post every wednesday 
where you will be able to link up to your blog
revealing that:

you are not picture perfect,
your kids are not picture perfect,
your house is not picture perfect,
your crafts are not always picture perfect,

inspire and 
other women 
that none of us have it all together.  

add my button to your blog post
and link up to your direct posting
and feel encouraged. 

But when he, the Spirit of truth, 
comes, he will guide you into all truth. 
He will not speak on his own; 
he will speak only what he hears, 
and he will tell you what is yet to come.
John 16:33
