I'm in the final countdown till I leave for ArtFiberFest!
My days have been and will be hectic. Making more heart plushies. Doing the round-up of class materials and packing. Picking up the rental car. Making a list for Chris so that he doesn't forget cross country practice, our cat's medication, school picture day -- you get the idea. My boys can manage without me just fine, but somehow, writing it all down reminds me where my days go! I have to take care of some volunteer stuff, as well. (Add grumbling noises here.)
I promise: I will do less, and be, more. Does that make sense? I volunteer a lot. Some of it I love, and some does not feed me at all. My goal is to drop the stuff I do out of guilt. I owe myself that much. I realized how ridiculous things have gotten when Ross was having a meltdown and I felt like yelling, "Not now, honey -- I don't have time for you to have a crisis!" That's not how I want to live. (Actually, it's not living -- it's slavery to my old notions of what I should be doing.)
In the meantime, back to making those plushies, which are giving me lots of smiles.
