Write, Share, Give

I can only juggle tissues or scarves, as far as most people define juggling. That said, I feel like a juggler everyday. Mom, teacher, wife, and Kristi - how to be all of these things, let alone any of them well. Can you relate?

With Christmas Break behind us (including the extra five days, due to the storm that passed through) I finally feel back in the 'regular' routine of life. Last week I just kind of got by. I didn't even meal plan. (You can imagine how well that went.) I did manage to have engaging lessons for my students that even met standards. Why do we put work before home? Ugh.

We have a guest arriving in town tomorrow. She is a friend from a previous school who is coming for a meeting. We are thrilled she is staying with us instead of in a hotel, but the literal 'house keeping' tasks that haven't happened yet after our return are now on the top of the priority list tonight.

Balance, isn't that what it is all about? For actual juggler it may be the same, but I think in life there needs to be the option of giving more weight to certain areas. I am sure that wouldn't keep 'all the balls in the air' for a true juggler.

I guess I am thankful I 'only' juggle life.


  1. boy, can I relate to this. I stink at juggling my life. I just do what I can and try not to drop too many balls!

  2. Juggling is so hard! I think as women we wear so many hats that we have no choice but to learn to juggle! I have to laugh because when I first read this I thought it said jiggle...yes I do a much better job of jiggling than juggling! :)

  3. I love this, Kristi, thought you really meant juggling! I have a colleague who's a former clown, can juggle beautifully & has taught us how to do a few things. As for the abstract, I was vacuuming at 7 pm last night. Does that answer the question? Argh, so much to do, & I don't have children at home. Have fun with your friend. I suspect she won't care if things are dusted!
