Kick it back ;)

16 Oct

ย Feel like laying down, letting the sun take away everything negative, and enjoying some much needed relaxation? Me too!! Too bad it’s now fall and 8:00 p.m. so it’s kind of impossible but I am totally closing my eyes daydreaming I am ๐Ÿ™‚ So this totally relaxed tanned lady is definitely not me. It’s a product of a google image search but this is where my daydreaming is taking me! On my “I am not doing anything” day off I went ahead and did laundry, did the dishes, made dinner for B and E and cleaned it up and the satisfaction is a total high right now! It doesn’t take much to get me excited. I am definitely an easy pleaser but just knowing I got a little done makes the night that much more fun! I feel like I am free of my list of things to do and my stress level completely drops. Today has been the exact relaxing day that I said I wanted it just so happens that I am still getting things done ๐Ÿ˜›

Well I have been addicted to this book K got me. It’s called Naptime Is the New Happy Hour by Stefanie Wilder-Taylor and it usually takes me a month to read a book and I have knocked it out ironically in a few nap times. I am already halfway through and I am definitely going to be writing a book review on this one! I think half of the reason I have flown through this book is my relaxation mode and I am determined to find this feeling during the week!! If I could accomplish this each day I would have so much crafting/fun time for mommy I wouldn’t know what to do with it.. just kidding I have lists upon lists ๐Ÿ˜‰ haha.

Okay, back to closing my eyes and daydreaming of laying out in the sunshine for me.

Love Always,

Lazy Saturdays :)

16 Oct

B & I love lazy Saturdays!! There’s just one minor problem.. I keep thinking about things that I want to get done. It’s making this lazy part really difficult! What happened to the days when we were little kids and we didn’t have lists of things to do. We didn’t have a care in the world and could sit and watch TV for HOURS! E isn’t at that stage yet. Her attention span is probably 5 minutes long if it’s a lucky day and 10 seconds if there is food in sight ๐Ÿ˜‰

I keep saying one of these days I am going to have everything in the house exactly how I want it and then I am going to be able to craft all day long but if you are a mom you know that it’s never going to happen. There is always laundry to be done, dishes to be washed, and cleaning up after little ones to do! Somehow that seems to absorb most of my day and those piles of wish lists to get done are still piled ๐Ÿ™‚

Like right now all I can think about is if I should tackle the dishwasher and put at least one load of laundry in the washer and dryer today so that’s one less to do to tomorrow but those things will always need to be done. Why not tackle the closet that needs some serious organizing, or E’s room which needs to be cleared of all the clothes she doesn’t fit in and go ahead and get the summer outfits out of there. Which then makes me realize that I need to go shopping because this child barely has any winter clothes .. hmm another thing added to my list!

Or I could sit here with Brian and soak up the only day I have to not tackle a list of things to do like I have successfully done all morning long! I think I am going to at least do one load of laundry ๐Ÿ˜‰

Love always,

J
