today's plans

so far today, i have dressed myself and one child, fed self and 2 kids breakfast, made one lunch (ok 1/2 credit on the lunch, i used a lunchable for part of it), taken said child to kindergarten. it's pretty much what i do every day.

i made a new blog tho, that's different.

and in a bit i'm going to lunch with my mom at crackers and co. mmmmm. don't you want to come too?

then i have to figure out why a medical lab company refuses to bill my insurance for lab work from last SEPTEMBER. that will be fun.

also i have lots of laundry to put away and a yard sale to get ready for (it's in 2 days). then i have to pick up the little man from kindergarten and make dinner.

do you think i can get it all done? probably not. but i'm hoping that the act of posting will help me get *some* of it done.

do i look crazy to you? wait, don't answer that...

The title for this blog comes from 2 quotes.

The first is from my son Luke. When he was 2, one of his favorite sayings was "Craziness ensues!" That about sums up my life, personality, parenting style, etc. :-) If I had a dollar for every time I said, "my life is crazy right now"...well...let's just say I wish someone had started paying me to say that.

The second is one of my husband's favorite quotes. It's from Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl:
"Don't aim at success - the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue... as the unintended side-effect of one's personal dedication to a course greater than oneself."

I'm almost 32. My life doesn't look at all like I thought it would (whose does?), but I do have certain things I want from life, things I work toward. I accept the fact that my life is just going to be crazy and unpredictable, but that there is a ton of happiness and success in there as well. In fact, I think I might love it for the craziness too.
