Easter

I love Easter weekend. I love the chocolate, love it way to much. But hey I had some self control, and was pretty proud of my self. I used to think that if there was chocolate in my house, it was my duty to eat it, so it will be gone and not tempt me anymore. Do you think I could just throw it away? Oh no. That would be so wasteful! So I ate it and gained 5 pounds I am sure every time.

What I love most about Easter is what it represents. Jesus Christ died and rose again. For me. He loves me that much. That is something I have a hard time wrapping my head around. I am so thankful He was so unselfish. It just is so amazing.

Juggling

Multi-tasking.  Everyone loves a multi-tasker.  In every job interview I have ever had they ask me if I can multi-task.  I can, and I am quite good at it for the most part.  I love lists, so they get me through it.  But when my list is longer than my arm, I go a little nutso.  I start to lose it, getting bombarded from every direction with expectations and demands.  It sucks.  I want to be a good wife, mother, friend, plus a thousand other things.  I hate saying no, or feeling like I am letting someone down.  The thing about that is, I end up letting my husband or kids down, because they are easier to say no to.  When I end up doing something out of pure obligation, I end up resenting it.  That is why I am slowly but surely figuring out how to say the word no.  I will take some practice, but I am getting better.  I just have to remind myself of that on days like today.
