Welcome to #breakthrulinkup #3!

For awhile now I’ve been seeing and reading articles telling me how people these days wear the badge “busy” with pride. It appears that if you can brag about how busy you are, and hey, maybe even win the discussion, you have “earned” a level of respect and awe.

‘Cause of course if you’re so busy you must be important, right? You must be all-that-and-a-bag-of-chips that people are demanding your time and energy and well, just so much of you…


I mean, I’m seriously *over* being busy. I’d love a day lounging around the house in my pj’s (no, contrary to popular thought not ALL homeschoolers work in their jammies), sipping coffee, binging Netflix or getting lost in a book that has nothing whatsoever to do with gasp home education or the craft of writing and blogging.

So why can’t I work a day like that into my schedule? Why is it that even tho’ the oldest teen left at home is driving and we’re “down” to two kids here my days are chock full?

There are days that I’m fine with my schedule, and honestly, I’m not complaining about my life. It’s rich and complicated and fun and an adventure.

But there are other days when I just want to (yes, being transparent here) throw the alarm clock across the room and roll over, pulling the covers over my head. Or at least just quietly watch the sun rise from the window in my bedroom while I listen to smooth jazz on the radio and sip my coffee. All day long.

So what are your days like? Are you too busy too? Or are you in the process of conquering the clamor that some of us call life?


I’d love to hear your answer to those questions – I mean, I can’t be the only one who struggles with this, can I?

  1. I love reading this post — I’m often conflicted about the balance between “fun and adventure” — and just wanting to drink my tea without warming it up three times because I’ve lost track of where I left it. Multiple children and homeschooling and blogging and church ministry (and now grandchildren!!) have taken me WAAAAAY outside my comfort zone, which is a good place to be if it leads me to greater faith. Not so great on the days when it leads me into panic over how everything is going to be accomplished.
    Blessed by you once again!


    1. Oh, Michele, I had to laugh at your comment…because it is SO “me”, too!
      I love how you use your situation to grow your faith, tho. Definitely where it’s at… I do admit that there are times when I (usually out of desperation) just breath it out to God, asking Him to take over the schedule.
      Not surprisingly, those are the days that go smoothest…
      Thank for sharing – I appreciated the encouragement, too! <3


  2. It is always a pleasure to link up with you. Thank you for all you do to bring bloggers together. I invite you to join me at #OverTheMoon, #WonderfulWednesday and #ThursdayFavoriteThings. Have a great week!


    1. Marilyn, thanks for the reminder! #OverTheMoon was one of the earliest blog parties I ever visited…I added it back to my calendar for tonight. “See you” over there later… 🙂
      Have a great week!


  3. I try to keep our commitments to a minimum so we’re not always feeling busy and running around. Often our days are a bit crazy but I keep our nights free.


    1. Smart lady, Joanne! I just have a hard time deciding what to cut! With multiple kids and multiple interests, I usually start the year limiting them to one activity each. But it’s so easy for “creep” to rear its ugly head – lol…
      Love those peaceful nights together as a family!


  4. Pat, I have the same problem and my kids are all grown! I like nothing better than a day to stay in my P.J.s, but they seem to be few and far between! I’m glad I’m not alone.

    Thanks for hosting. Hope you squeeze in a jammie day soon!


    1. Ohmygosh, Donna, you do? And here I’ve been thinking that it might slow down in a few years…lol!
      Oh well, this is the only life I have so I’d just better embrace it and milk it for all it’s worth, right?

      DEFINITELY squeezing in a jammie day soon 😉
