I once planned a lunch date with some girl friends and I forgot to show up! Seriously, I organized it! I invited everyone to meet for lunch … and I forgot. How awful is that? Terrible… I know!!!! Hot Mess at it’s finest! I was in the middle of remodeling our new home, I was (supposed to be) homeschooling our kiddos, and I swear I just was wrapped up in my messes and I didn’t have a clue where I was supposed to be when. My phone rang and one of my friends said, “Are you on your way?” To which I replied, “On my way where?” Can you imagine my embarrassment when she said… “We are all here at the restaurant… for lunch”? True story. I’m not kidding. So, I show up … late… wearing no makeup and dirty work clothes to join my friends as they eat lunch.. because I had already eaten.
Obviously, I need some help in the getting organized and staying organized area. My house did get finished. My kids did get home-schooled well and are now honor roll students in public school. My friends are still my friends…. Thank the Lord we love each other despite our faults! But, I know I could do so much more and so much better .. with much less stress.. if I’d get myself organized.
My life has changed over the past several years… but it certainly hasn’t slowed down. Our kids are active in school activities such as cheering, baseball, UIL events, student council, etc. I spend a lot of time driving kids around and cheering in the stands. My husband and I are self-employed and own a few businesses catering to the shooting sports industry. We mainly cater to .22lr competition shooting and you are welcome to check out our website Killough Shooting Sports. I also own a health and wellness business promoting products that have given me the energy and motivation to stay healthy and a passion for helping others do the same! CLICK HERE to see what’s up with that. I love to sing and I use the gift God gave me to sing with our church praise and worship team. I especially love working with our church youth. I’m just a busy wife, mom, friend, and entrepreneur. And I love sharing things I’ve learned that have been helpful to me.
I am doing better with managing my calendar… nope… not perfect. (My daughter’s piano teacher called last week and asked if we were on our way. LOL!) But, I’m working on it! I’m making progress. I found a fantastic article with practical helpful tips to move me in the direction of HOT MESS TO LESS STRESS. 10 Habits for a More Organized Life I’ve already started putting some of these into place.. but, I’ve got a long way to go. Yes, I have to implement it. I have to do it. Staying Organized… just like staying healthy and building businesses.. is something I’ve got to stay consistent with.
If you’re an organized and unstressed non-hot mess.. good for you… please, don’t judge me! All you other Hot Messes out there… although we bring good laughs to our organized friends.. it’s time we go from HOT MESS to LESS STRESS! Yes, we can!
Rise & Shine!
