Do you ever have those moments when you feel completely happy where things are at in your life? There are times when my cup runneth over- I'm homeschooling my kids, creating a profitable business producing products that I'm proud of, finishing a building that I can work out of, I have great friends and I have a solid relationship with the love of my life. I also have these moments where I am completely overwhelmed.

I really enjoy having my kids home with me. When their school work is finished, I feel like such a good mom. I've read with my kids, we've studied scriptures together, and I've helped them learn new things. Now in the middle of the school day, sometimes I want to pull my hair out and go hide in my room. My biggest worry is that I've taught them the things that will help them become productive, capable adults. It's hard balancing the needs of three kids at the same time, but we have slowly figured out a schedule that works for all of us. It's definitely been a big learning process.

My building is finally coming along. A friend of ours was kind enough to spend last week wiring the entire building for me. I'll be forever indebted to him for that! I also had insulation blown in the walls. I've had two quotes for drywall, but they were more than I am willing to spend. Tomorrow a man that we have hired on previous occasions to do odd jobs around the farm is coming over to give me a price. I hope it is reasonable. I've been spending a lot of time daydreaming about what I want the finished result to look like. I'm so excited to have a space of my mom that will represent me! My business is steadily picking up and I can't wait to have my own space to work out of.

I was up way too late last night finishing projects for church. I took a nap this afternoon but it's getting late and my words are starting to run together. Until tomorrow!
