Can't Have It All

I have come to the rather liberating realization that I cannot have both toned arms and a finished novel. 

Not if I also want to have a full-time job, kids who know who their mother is, an in-tact marriage and a few hours of sleep thrown in.  You just can’t do it all.

Well, maybe you can, but I can’t.

And I need to stop beating myself up about that.  I need to spend less time feeling bad about the things I’m not fitting onto my To Do list and more time being content with all that I do get done.

So, this summer, the first draft of my book will be finished and my arms shall remain flabby and I’m okay with that.


  1. Oooh, that bad ol' mythical critter called balance -- discard that notion and realize that one day either you WILL have those toned arms or you will cease obsessing about them. LOL!

  2. Hey, Sara! Congrats on starting a blog and mucho congrats on coming to terms that we are not Superwomen! Besides, flabby arms are why God invented sweaters.
    Looking forward to hearing your progress on the novel this summer.

  3. Thanks for stopping by guys - and thanks for being supportive of flabby arms!!

  4. LOL! Ah, wisdom and realism all wrapped up in one blog post!
