Y'all - Things. Just. Got. Busy. In that "this is a very exciting opportunity - I must have been crazy to take this on" kinda way.
Now, sure - given the nature of what I do, it might seem silly to call it "busy". I mean, my busy probably just looks like a lot of time spent on the couch watching movies, every season of 30 Rock, or Disney cartoons. And that's not exactly an unfair observation. (Do I have a great job or what? Yep!)
It's not exactly a fair observation either. Just because I am sitting in the comfort of my own home doesn't mean I'm not hard at work. I still have projects to complete. Deadlines. Expectations to be met.
It means I can get easily distracted from the family life going on around me. Or worse - frustrated by it when it distracts me from the work I am trying to get done.
I have to remember to be intentional about making time to set the work aside and be present with the ones I love. To turn away from the work from time to time and be here. With them. Focused.
And whole I'm at it - to take time for myself. To unwind. To relax. To pray. To read. To refresh and renew.
And then... back to work!
