On top of all that I was planning for a big event after church Sunday that I was in charge of ("Young Women in Excellence"--more on that later) so I was running around all day--shuttling kids, attending the football game, picking up things I needed for the church thing, going to the church to set up, attending the athletic banquet, and grocery shopping for my own family, because for the life of me I can't seem to keep food in the house with the way my three older boys are eating these days.

When my kids were little I thought parenting them was exhausting, and it is--I don't want to discount how hard it is to be a parent to young children, but I had no idea how much more busy it would become. It didn't get less exhausting. Not at all. Just different.
