This or That?

 

I’m finding that as much as I want to…I can’t do everything…and that’s not Jane Carrolljust a control thing…although…I do like to be in control…no…it’s more of a… if I do this…then…I don’t have time to do that…and…I have to choose which one to do…

I’m not sure how mothers with young children do it…pulled in twenty directions at all times…working fulltime…keeping up with the kids’ activities when they get home…cooking…cleaning…committees…although I know I once did it…I’m exhausted just typing it…

Bertha…is reminding me this morning…to be gentle with myself…make the choices for what I want to do…what I can do…and let the guilt of the other things go…

I know she’s right…and…so…I write…at least for now…

Jane

PS…I’m so excited that Becoming Bertha…is available for pre-order…and will be fully released on November 6, 2014…I hope you’ll gift yourself with a copy…

Call Me Goldie…

It’s my favorite time of year…not hot…not cold…just right…geez…I sound likeJane Carroll Goldilocks…but it is…I love being able to enjoy being outdoors without sweating or shivering…and…I love not needing to use HVAC in order to have the house at a perfect temperature…

My fantasy…or maybe it’s on my bucket list…is to actually live in this kind of climate year round…

And…for once…Bertha…agrees with me…she doesn’t even try to tell me that having extremes of weather make me appreciate lovely days like we’ve been having…because…she knows…that even though I might take it for granted…I would always enjoy and appreciate…lovely days…

But…until the time that I make it to…paradise…I’ll just enjoy these Autumn days…as they come…because…they are…just right

Jane…

Becoming Bertha is due for release in early November…and I have to say…I’m in love with this book…but don’t worry…if you haven’t read… Bertha-Size Your Life!…you still have time…
