Mommy Brain and Busyness

This week is stuffed full.

Somehow (not fully by my doing!) it has become over-scheduled.

I will be going multiple directions and filling various requirements.

Therefore my mind maybe a little scattered and loopy. Even more than it usually is.

Like last Friday when I took a meal to a young mom who just had her second baby. We chatted a few minutes then I headed for the door.  My mind was on the next item on my list of To-Do’s.  As I reached for the door knob her daughter said, “Mommy?” 

I quickly called out over my shoulder, “Yes, Honey?” 

As soon as I said it I wanted to bolt out the door, but I knew I had been heard. 

Shaking my head I turned around and laughingly (out of pure embarrassment because I don’t know this lady well) I called, “Did you hear what I just said?”

I was desperately hoping she hadn’t heard me, but she answered with an affirmative. I quickly made some flimsy excuse about a busy day and muddled brain, then scooted out the door at lightning speed.


SO, don’t be surprised if I don’t make it to your blog to comment this week.  I will try, but be prepared for a comment claiming your children as my own or some crazy off the wall comment about green beans and cucumbers (gardening, ya know).

Before I jump straight into this gigantically busy day I want to show you this picture my brother took of my sister and I this weekend.  We had donned my Grandma’s and Great Aunt Betty’s red hats.

Just for fun….

Marisa and Me

I love how it turned out!  I will definitely cherish this picture.  I LOVE YOU, SIS!


  1. Jenn, praying right now for you to have a lovely peace filled week amidst the busyness! Don't forgot to enjoy the 'ride', take a half a second to note that at any given moment your Jesus is right there with you in the middle of the madness!

    BTW, such a beautiful picture!!!!!

    Love you

  2. Grace (& peace) to you... we understand. LOL! that is funny... "yes, Honey?"... sounds like something I'd do.

    This picture of you and your sister is really, really sweet. So charming and somehow already beaming with nostalgia. You're right, it's a keeper.

    Seriously. Have a peace-filled week. I'll be thinking about you.

  3. The picture is so adorable!!!!!

  4. I LOVE that photo!
    that red just sets it off!

  5. I LOVE this picture! I need a copy!!!! I hope your week goes better than you expect. Maybe we'll get a chance to chat briefly. I'm going through withdrawal after seeing you so much last week!

  6. Hope your week gets a little less crazy!! And I too, LOVE that picture of you two! Gorgeous!

  7. Oh, and I answer to other peoples children ALL the time. Target, the pool, church, the park...everywhere! Haha, glad I'm not the only one!

  8. I love you two sassy sisters shinin' brightly in those bright red hats. I just had to break the rules and pop in to see what you've been up to and thank you for your prayers and support. I've been ordered to do nothing until I heal from these stinkin' shingles I've battled over two months. Don't tell Hubby I was here! Heeehehehe!

    Ya'll take care and have a glorious summer day!!! God bless you Jenn :o)

  9. This is adorable and feel free to write any bizarre thing in comments whenever you see fit. You crack me up.

    I am so glad that you had fun with your sister. Precious! Love the red hats!
