Day 7: Separating the stupid from the crazy

In the past, I've used the phrase "stupid crazy busy" to illustrate to someone how nuts my life has been.
And actually, I don't like that phrase and can't really say why I ever used it in the first place.  Stupid is the "S" word in my house and it's not allowed without consequence.

What I've noticed so far in October is that I am busy. 
I really LIKE being busy.
Some days, I feel that both stupid and crazy are appropriate modifiers for the word "busy."

What I've also noticed is that balance is a really tricky  thing.

When I turn my attention to Spiritual nourishment, for example, my physical nourishment tends to go on the back burner.
Not that I don't eat, just that I don't take as much time to plan meals and actually cook the healthy things I want to eat and want my kids to eat.

It might not be the first thing you think when you see me, but I'm actually a very health-conscious person.  I do a lot of research and reading to decide what I want to feed myself and my family and what I want to avoid in our food.

But "eating clean" takes a lot of work.
I've done it for several years now, but when I'm completely on top of it, I literally spend most of the day in the kitchen prepping, cooking, and cleaning up.
So when something else is taking up more of my time, food prep gets the cut.

I know God wants us to be fed both Spiritually and physically and I have to find that balance.

Life gets crazy sometimes, but I need to separate the stupid {or let's say "unintelligent"} from the crazy.

What about you? Do you have something that always goes on the back-burner when life gets crazy?
