Still dealing with the aimless wandering sensation I get each morning when I would normally be spending time with my mom. But I have started a new schedule, especially since DD started school, dance and all the other stuff that goes on in daily life. I've made progress around the house, with myself and stuff in general. I am trying to go through the entire house and declutter, clean and simplify it all. I am tired of living with too much stuff that I don't need, want or use. I'm donating alot of the stuff but hope to have a rummage sale one day. That is part of the problem, storing stuff that I hope to sell one day. Just let it go!! The piles of stuff are holding me, my house & my family back from where we want to be. I think I've finally gotten it about the whole declutter, simplify swing that is going around, yet again.
I'm working on a mini album at the moment. DD's tee-ball photos are just too cute so even though I've got photos saved for a layout I just had to use the extra pile for a sweet album for myself. It'll be so cute when it is done. Can't wait to get more time to finish it now.
I did a really cute box for DD using my Quickutz Silhouette and Bo Bunny papers and accents. Too cute. DD uses it for hairbands at the moment. DD keeps bugging me to get her hair cut but I tell her no. Not until she's 12 can she get it cut short. She is always asking me to do fun, funky braids with it too so I'm not sure which request to believe. I love her long dark golden hair, so gorgeous. It makes me think I might grow back my long hair. Then I snap out of it and hope that I can just get the stuff on my head to not look horrid for a small portion of the day.
Went for lunch with a dear friend of mine and had a great time chatting and munching at our favorite Chinese restaurant. We hadn't gotten together in ages and it was really nice to spend some time with another female just talking about life and stuff without the kids running around or the husband needing to know where "I" put something. I think that is part of what I miss working outside of the home, time that isn't completely child absorbed. I love my kids but some days I do feel like a part of me got lost somewhere between being a mom and a caregiver. So days when I get to be something other than my norm it is a nice reminder that I do think about things other than Elmo and Jeopardy.
