Another weekend gone

Over 300 posts, and just over a month until the 1-year mark of doing this blog. Wow indeed! I must say, my motivation for writing is low. Probably because time feels seriously compressed, energy is low, and other priorities loom larger.
The weekend is gone. How? Lots of house cleaning and chores. Lots of time playing with and cuddling baby. Some good time with friends.

I somewhat am not excited about the week ahead. I start the week with a presentation first thing tomorrow. I hope things start well and go well!

Getting baby up tomorrow also might be a struggle. But maybe not! Here’s to some positive thinking.

Still lots I’d love to do tonight. there are about 4 different documents I’m working on related to family organization/goals (wills; travel packing list; budget sheet; wardrobe list; phone list). However, at this point I am going to call it quits. Baby’s asleep. Husband is trying to sleep. I need to join them.

Outings and Innings

Today was more active than I’m used to. Up early. Groceries with baby – two stops. Haven’t done that in a long time. And incidentally, it reminds me of how busy I kept during mat leave, doing groceries a few times a week at multiple stores. WHY??? Keep it simple. During shopping today, I said no to many items I would have bought in the past. Don’t need the surplus, duplicates, extra. Less shopping is empowering.
Home, nurse, eat, play. Then I had time to wax my legs while watching a movie. Baby helped :). She rubbed some sticks up and down my legs. And when I wasn’t watching, crumpled up the wax strips and threw them out. Thanks baby!

We went to a funeral next – sad but glad I went. Baby fell asleep going there, then woke up part way through.

Finally: home, some rest but mainly mad dash to get everything ready to get to an engagement party tonight. rush rush rush … and baby really, really didn’t want to change her clothes to go. Cried going there. then had an awesome time running back and forth with us (mainly nana), eating, crawling, etc. etc.

Left when she was getting tired. Sorry not to be able to stay for the dance but feel it was the right time to leave with our girl. Still, it reminds me of the importance of doing things for myself, which I noticeably don’t do a lot of lately. Just finished reading “A weekend to change your life” by Joan Anderson and know I need to claim some space for myself. Just don’t know what that will mean.

Now: other 2 are sleeping, and I”m going to join them.
