will I ever learn?

I have this problem, I can't say NO...anytime I'm asked to do something, I can never tell someone NO...

January 18th my Granny passed away...very sad day...my Granny was a very important part of my life and I miss her dearly...what does that have to with saying no? good question!

in February I was asked to be the President of the Byron Middle School Booster Club...
I said "I don't know, I don't think I have time"...
"but Kristie you will be so good at it, it's 1 meeting a month"...
I said "Chelsey is just going into Middle School, what if she doesn't make a team"
"but Kristie, you know she will. Kristie you are an awesome leader, look what all you've done with the Relay for Life. Please!"
I said "Ok, I'll do it"
what the crap was I thinking?

July all the legal stuff was finished with Granny's will and her house is mine...my Granny & Grandaddy's house that they lived in most of their married life is mine...that's still hard to grasp...we started remodeling the house, it was built in 1930 has had lots of remodeling through the years but we have to make a 2 bedroom 1 bath house big enough for the 4 of us; we will soon have a 3 bedroom 2 bath totally renewed house

August, it's time for recreational soccer...Chelsey and Jenna both love soccer and what do I do...I'm the soccer coach for Jenna's team, 2 nights a week I'm coaching soccer...do I really have time for this?

I'm trying to pack up all the stuff in this house (we sold house #1 and have to be out by the end of the month but our new house won't be finished by then so we have to stay with my Daddy), pick out colors for my new house, run the Booster Club (it's more than that 1 meeting a month they told me about), coach soccer, be Momma, be a wife, etc...oh yeah, my business, my Tastefully Simple business just keeps getting thrown to the side while the rest of my life takes over

when will I ever learn that simple 2 letter word...NO!

to be continued...

Welcome to the world of blogging. Like Tracy said, it really is a place to just vent. Hope you're doing well!
