We all have seasons where busyness threatens to consume us. We’re so busy that our homes become a dumping ground as we finally get back to the house because we are too exhausted to even entertain the idea of cleaning things. Dentist appointments, doctor visits, family pictures, music lessons, play dates and field trips have a way of landing right on top of each other. From morning till dinner the family is out of the house.
As a homeschooling family, the chaos can get even worse as school supplies are left out as you run from one thing to the next. The science project just sits there begging to be completed.
Have you been there?
I like to call these seasons survival mode. We do the bare minimum to get us through each day. We know that the season will end soon enough to get things back under control. These seasons can be as short as a week or last as long as a month or more.
There isn’t a specific time frame, it’s simply when life is too busy to get everything done that we would normally get done. The laundry may pile up, the dishes might need to sit longer, the floors may not get swept every night as you are running from one errand to the next.
Busy seasons make you thankful for the mundane chores.
