How I Balance it All:
Am I balancing it all?!  HA!  It is a day-to-day challenge.  I am extremely fortunate that my parents live close by.  I count on them for so much!! My husband is a huge help too.  He is always willing to step in and help out. I have always been very disciplined and organized-at home and at work. My daughters would probably tell you I am organized to the extreme!  But, I think you have to be in order to hold it all together in this fast-paced, crazy, over-scheduled world we live in.
