My Schedule Right Now.....


is crazy.

Hence the lack of timely blogging. Just trying to get this here motion off my desk and off to court. Also frantically trying to get everything done before S and I head off to DISNEY WORLD!!!!! for a much-needed vacation.

Speaking of schedules, here's a layout I created on that very topic with Studio Calico's December kit, Metropolitan:


Since I had a profusion of week-themed products (KI scribbles, weekday stamps, etc.) I decided to document what my weekly schedule is right now as a part-timer, and the way I balance my roles as wife, (soon to be) lawyer, scrapbooker, writer, friend, daughter etc, right now. The balance ain't perfect--especially not this week--but I love that my life is filled with things I find meaningful and enjoy.

I read somewhere that there are two planes of happiness--a "macro" plane where you feel like your life has meaning, and "micro" plane where you get happiness from the small things in life. To be really happy, the article said, you need both to align. I think about that idea often when I schedule--how to be busy with the big things, but still enjoy the little things?

It's something I'm still learning as I go along, and I suspect I always will.
How do YOU balance all of your roles? What's YOUR schedule like?

  3. I totally love this layout, I hope you have so much fun at Disney! ( I promise I will e-mail you back, I'm sorry it's been weeks, but life has been nuts lately) Right now balance is a huge issue, as we're still trying to find our new normal for our new life situations and it's not coming as easily as I had hoped it would.

  4. Great page Keshet! We try hard to enjoy little moments, especially the time right before bedtime with tickles and snuggles and books! My favourite time of the day. Otherwise it always seems too busy!

  6. A great way to document the stage of life you are in right now. Balance...a constant struggle for me as I feel I wear many hats: wife, mom of four, homeschooling mama, music teacher, overseeing renovations, budgeting, church life, housework, and paper crafting. I think the number one thing I have to remember again and again is that I am not called to perfection in any of these, I just have to do my best and let the little stuff slide.
    We went to Disney last year at this time. Have fun!

  7. Ooh. My "micro" plane is great. I love the small things. My "macro" is not doing so well. Making them align is a lot harder than it sounds! Super cute layout, Keshet!

  8. That layout is fantastic, Keshet! I really love how you used the stamps nice and spaced out on the page.
    The balance/scheduling thing is so tough! I can imagine as a new attorney you will have some challenges with this as well, as the first year is notorious for its busy-ness. Good luck as you find your balance between the macro and micro!

  9. I think most struggle with balance. I am more the micro happiness type of person. I really see happiness in the small things.

  21. I'm going to plead the 5th on the whole balance thing. I don't do a very good job in that department. I like the micro/macro concept. Very true! And I love this page!
