Welcome to my digital writing journal, or mydigitalclutter. What started as a family blog almost two years ago has morphed into my writing therapy. This is where I do a lot of free writing, mostly about my life with my family and the things that catch my interest. While nowhere even close to perfect, in each post I like to see how my writing is changing with time and practice. Most posts are left unedited for this reason, so if you don't mind, take the journey with me.

Today as I race from one activity or another, (luckily I can type this while my daughter dances) I feel the chaos again, seeming to press in on me, and the trials of yesterday return. I don't have a door to close or a desk to rest on in order to allow the tears to well up in my eyes. Yet, I will continue on as we make the Wednesday night rounds.
My mantra for this year is Balance. I don't think I'm doing very well today. I'm allowing myself to become overwhelmed with the fact my Christmas tree is sitting only half put away, my kitchen sink doesn't want to drain, and my mountains of laundry are never ending. Tonight I am with my children, even though we aren't in the comfort of our own home. I should be grateful for the time, something I lamented yesterday, and I am.
Here is my question, do we ever learn to balance it all?
