This week’s themes: Completing, Visiting, Repeating, Writing, Scheduling.
Completing: I feel like I am having a really hard time completing anything lately. I have a lot of things started, but getting to that completed status… just feels impossible! I did get today’s housework completed. Maybe I will call today a win, and just ignore all the other to-do lists I have to do…
Visiting: I have been dreaming of visiting Canada soon. It has been just about 5 years since I was last in Canada, and to me that just seems insane! 5 years! However, a trip to Canada, with 4 kids = extremely expensive, and I just don’t know when we will be able to swing that bill. I am really hoping that this year is the year we start seeing some sort of stable income that will let us save up some money. I am kind of hoping that we can make it to Canada for Christmas. But I don’t know. We will see. I better getting selling A LOT more Mini Backdrops….
Repeating: Sophie has started repeating words that we said. Which is fun. I love trying to get her to say new things. I love hearing her say actual works. Granted I think her babble made up words are adorable too, especially when she has a whole conversation. But the actual words make my heart sing. And I am going to enjoy it while I can, because soon those words will turn to arguments… sigh… they grow up to fast.
Writing: I have not been writing much of anything. I need to start writing her more. My mind is full, and maybe if I can clear it a bit I will feel less jumbled and be able to focus more. Maybe. I don’t know. Maybe clearing my head more often will let me get a better sleep. Maybe it won’t. I don’t know. I need to write more.. period.
Scheduling: I have been scheduling everything lately. We have even made a monthly cleaning schedule. It is nice. Our house is no longer a total mess. Just a little bit of a mess which is much more manageable. We also have a daily checklist of things that have to get done every day. I do need to get better and scheduling my work though. When I don’t I find it hard to focus on what I need to get done. But I am getting there. Slowly.
