Sitting...in the stands

I often lament over the things on my to-do list that just never get done.
I admit, I have a hard time staying focused in 10-minute spurts.  I need to know I've got an hour or more to accomplish a task...or I just may put it off.
A diaper change here, a snack there, an appointment next, and suddenly my virtual list is set aside for tomorrow, but tomorrow will look just like today.
What's a gal to do?
I changed my perspective and my strategy!
Some things can wait, and some just can't.
With an adult son getting married this summer, another graduating high school and a daughter who plays sports year round *and a whole krew to follow*, I realize that time doesn't stand still while I get my ducks in a row!
Either I can trudge through my measly to-do list, or I can embrace this busy season.
All I have to do is:
a) plan ahead
b) start early
c) let go of the things that don't really matter


It used to scare the dickens out of me to load up all the littles and attend an event when Daddy couldn't join us.  Okay, it still does a little.  But it hit me how quickly time flies, little ones grow up, and I've missed out on so much!


I have truly enjoyed this year, whether straggling in the gate in single file without Daddy, or being whisked inside with him!



Last night was a special "Pink Out" game in honor of cancer research, survivors and those who have lost their battle to the dreaded disease.
Most of these girls play together year round, and it's amazing watching them as a team, especially when it's for a great cause!


The pink fan club.

April and some of the kids.


Whether we are ONE or ALL, we'll be sitting at the court or the field.  

Because some things can't wait!

glad you pushed past the fear and went out with daddy. I am sure it was much appreciated.
