Jen from IHeart Organizing posts the most beautiful organizing projects -- whether it's an amazingly neat fridge and freezer or color-sorted Legos in a fun, functional playroom.

I know, right!? She is naturally tidy and organized, and her brain seems to easily put together efficient ways of doing things. In other words, she is nothing like me :) Because of the focus of her site and because of the beautiful pictures she posts, it's easy to think of Jen as "perfect" (and easy to think of oneself as not perfect enough). Jen took a stand against this in A "Perfect" Post. Go read it!

So this is a short post. That's about all I can muster tonight, because, guys, I've got to tell you something. I'm TIRED! Not worn out tired, like when I became anemic at the end of my pregnancy. Not sick tired, like when illness saps my energy. Just sleepy tired, because I've been staying up way too late learning, learning, learning and writing, writing, writing. And I love it. It's so invigorating to be writing daily again and to be filling my mind with new things to think about! I stay up late because night time is the only time I can focus without ignoring my children and husband. At night they are asleep and he is at work. But on the other hand I can't be a good, present mom and wife if I don't get enough sleep.
I am taking on a paid writing project next week, so posting here may be light. I had intended to write every day, and I have been. If not here, on Lisa Loves Logan. I love the lab this blog has become for me, but part of an experiment is making adjustments, and right now I might need to adjust my posting schedule a little.
Anyone else have some thoughts on this pro-real-life stance? Do blogs and Pinterest make you feel motivated or defeated? Been inspired or encouraged by any words lately? I'd love to hear. Okay. Must. Go. To. Bed. I am seriously mis-typing every single word. Good night!
