Have you ever felt like your mind was spinning with all the things that you need to do? I need to do this, and I need to do that, and I really need to do this, too. And all of it needs to be done right now!!
That is what bubble trouble is.
Bubble Trouble is a movie made by a homeschooling family that shows what it would be like if you could see everyone's thoughts... as in bubbles. It is a great little movie. There is one scene where the mom is shown with all of her "bubble" thoughts popping one at a time. And she was able to answer a question at the same time. Now, when I saw that, I had to laugh out loud, because it portrayed what I, as well as most, if not all moms, go through.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who goes through this. Some call it multi-tasking, but I call it chaos of the mind!!! Sometimes I feel like I have so much to do, but not enough time to do it all. And I know, we are not called to do everything, but there are so many things to do to keep things running smoothly. Just how smoothly do I want to keep things, is the question at the moment. And, what are the priorities?
Making my home sing with more and better organization, ending our imperfect homeschool for the year, planning for next year's imperfect homeschool, getting ready for baby, figuring out what to cook for my family tonight, laundry in the dryer, blah, blah, blah, etc., etc., and etc.!!! The list is even longer than this, but I won't bore you with the gory details. You get the idea.
The list seems to be never ending. And as I sit here typing this, I'm also thinking about what I didn't get done that really needs to be done TODAY!! Well, there's always tomorrow. Those bubbles will faithfully be there to remind me of their presence!!
Who needs to write things down when they have bubbles popping in their heads????
So, what will I be doing to make my home sing this week? Well, popping one bubble at a time, I guess!
