It's never easy... Prioritize

How do people find time to do everything that needs to be done?

I don't think anyone can... I certainly can't.
Keep a clean house, a happy family, work outside the home, yard work (yeah, spring time - love/hate) and all... the so many other things I didn't mention

I've been overwhelmed, basically because I've let myself get that way. I try doing too many things...

Prioritize... yep, that's what I need to do.
Take a look around and think on this day what has to get done first. Get it done and see what time & energy is left... Go on from there.

Top of my lists are usually the small but necessary chores - dishes, maybe laundry depending on the day... But this time of season my gardens need to be worked through...

I love my gardens, but this year I'm giving one a complete overhaul.. It was a "Cottage garden" style and many were fighting to be the dominate plant and looked a bit like a crowded mess.
Lots of work but I've decided to go the landscape fabric & mulch route this time. It will require less maintenance and not go out of control as fast.
And of course we can't forget the fruit & veggie garden... ughhh... the work.. but the rewards are so wonderful... The Universe gives us what we need as long as we put in some effort to get it

But we can't forget those people we love... Also a big priority. I always take the time for some good conversations with my daughter & my husband...
My house doesn't have to be perfectly clean all the time - even though it would be nice - we need to take time for ourselves too...
