It’s disappointing to successfully reach day 24 of a 31 day series and then miss an entire week. Thankfully my theme is 31 Days of Real Life and this is my opportunity to admit that I can’t do it all. Judging from the conversation last week at Relevant, I’m not the only one.
Unfortunately, most of us live our lives under the delusion that other women are doing it all, or at least better than we are. As a homeschooling mother of 8, you can imagine how often I get the comment “I don’t know how you do it.” My new answer is “not very well.”
Check out Simple Mom’s post on Imperfection to find out what things everyone else is admitting they can’t do.
[This collage contains one week’s worth of camera phone photos, a slice of a busy week including a 1400 mile round-trip to Harrisburg, PA, for Relevant (in a sweet, sponsored Kia—believe me, you’ll hear all about it). I’ll post the remainder of the Relevant shots and my usual linky on Friday.]
