My Friday began innocently enough. A great plan in store for my kiddos, after 3 days of testing, it was time for a well-deserved celebration. The plan? Bead-making out of magazines for necklaces we are going to sell at our school cultural community event, a donut party and the wonderful finishing touch of a movie. Lovely plan, no? So we begin with bead-making, but I quickly remember two things. 1.) I am a perfectionist. 2.) My second-graders are not manufactured bead making machines, but second graders. Bead making created approximately 1,000 beads. Woohoo! Post bead making created approximately 6 hours of me, checking each bead for usability, re-rolling and re-gluing. Joy. In the process, I came to this conclusion: I am type LMNOP. A type LMNOP person not only is a perfectionist, much like a type A person, but tries to be a master in everything. Extracurricular activity lists exceed 20, hours of sleep rarely exceed 6. Type LMNOP people do not just dabble in a little of this and a little of that but try to be 6 people in one. Currently I bake, cook, salsa dance, zumba, bike, hike, am a gym rat, read, plan weddings, paint canvases, paint pottery, teach, go to church, and bible study. This is me. Type LMNOP. These are my beads. My wake up call. I need an intervention.

Peace, Love, and Let-it-go!
