Burning the Candle

When you reach the point that you are burning the candle at both ends, you discover your candle has more than two ends.  The good news and the bad news are the same: our plate runneth over!

My current quest is to discover how to minimize what is on our plate.  As newlyweds, we have two houses.  Obviously, one has got to go!  The challenge is prepping one house for sale as we strive to blend two families into the other.  I am surrounded by STUFF.  I find myself torn by the need to eliminate one mortgage and the desire to bring order to our home.  Both are important to my sanity.  Dealing with both, however, makes it seemingly IMPOSSIBLE to have any time to enjoy this amazing life!

How do YOU handle the balance?  Is it even possible?

  1. Hi there, this is the first time that I am responding to a blog post, but after reading yours, I actually went down memory lane when my husband and I got married years ago. We had the same issue, we both had a house and had to assimilate our “stuff” into one life. When we were going through selling my house, (it was the smaller one) I remember feeling very overwhelmed trying to get it ready to put on the market. But now that I think back, it was all part of the journey of sharing our life together. There were many things that happened with the house that when we talk about it, we still laugh and sometimes want to cry. But it was all a part of who we are today. Hope this helps 🙂

    • That is SO good to hear, mommy321, thank you! We are about to prepare for our THIRD yard sale…if that doesn’t bring a good team closer together I don’t know what will.
