has anyone seen....

The month of October?
I think I saw her but now she's quickly leaving us and I am so not ready for her sister, November to come.
Seriously?
Anyone?
October?

Happy Halloween-

I'm hoping to wrap up some last minute costumes for the girls so that we can go trick or treating tonight for Greta's first time!

I'm also hoping to carve our pumpkin today. Yup, that's how far behind we are on this month!

Maybe I'll be able to post in November about the stuff we've been doing and the cute projects I've been completing? I made a yarn wrapped Fall wreath, a freezer paper t-shirt for my brother in law, multiple tulle tutus, and some other random stuff.

Finding balance

Balance.
It's a dance. To find the balance in our day to day lives.
I've been substitute teaching a little here and there and I love it. But I don't love the work it takes to prepare to be away from my ladies, whether they stay here with someone watching them or I take them somewhere. It's a lot of work either way.
I've also been working with my Aunt Maureen as her CAbi assistant at shows. It's a blast and I get to meet all sorts of new people. But it also requires time away from my family.
And then there are the other, normal, commitments that just seem to creep their way into our lives and require either me to be away or people to be here. And again, I'm social, and I usually love them all, but they still take something from the quiet night at home.

So here's my dilemma. Life is short. My babies will never be this young again. How do I find the balance? How do I make time for my family, my man, my friends, and myself?
Suggestions?
