I finally made it to my blog. The past few months I have only communicated in the 140 characters that Twitter allows. Lately, I have somehow adapted that to be my policy on listening as well! It’s sad, I know! I’ll explain…
Crazy how life goes….instead of doing one thing at a time, I simultaneously moved into a new home and launched a new solo project right smack dab on top of each other. Not only did we move into a new home, we started home schooling. My tolerance for the middle school my kids were in hit the ceiling and I found myself pulling them out of school before I had a plan of what was next. That week was also the week James, my producer, let us know that he had a window to work in the studio and if we didn’t take it, it would be a while. SO…I was packing up a home, home schooling, moving, and in-between running back and forth to a local studio handling my project “Still Standing.” The most hectic part was doing all of this during the week because our weekends are mostly spent on the road in ministry engagements.
During these weeks, we had to move two storage units of our belongings from Louisville, KY and coil out 17 years of our “stuff” that we have learned to live without for two years! Again, another task, and pulling off an estate sale was a new priority. It fit in really great sandwiched in one off weekend we had. We literally sold almost everything we had. Everything I have encountered over the past 5 years of traveling has changed me. I want simple. I want to a be a minimalist and streamline everything!
I’m almost there.
Once we moved in, the home school aspect changed. Quickly. The kids were miserable and so was I. Unpacking was on hold during the day as I tried to answer a thousand questions in three different grades. They begged to go back to school…I begged for them to go back to school…. so we re-enrolled to public school. This is no simple task. It was like we were foreigners starting the school system for the first time. Another thing to do is all…
All the burners have been on high, but slowly and surely they are going off one by one. I am looking at only a few more things to tackle at home. We are moving into summer, which blesses me like nothing else. My project Still Standing is finished and I’m just about to say “NEXT”… (I already have a list)
The next few blogs I want to work on will be DIY’s of things I have done around the house. Unless, of course, I am sharing new music.
In just a couple weeks and I will have music on Itunes!! If you want to preview it click here… Still Standing
