At least that is how I have felt the past few weeks with my mind, my heart, and my soul. I have been trying to alternate for weeks between sleep and work and family and work. If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen that my Etsy shop is finally up and running! I’m so happy that the most time intensive work is behind me. It’s a little piece of me that I have been fighting to get up and going, so I’m just going to take a moment to enjoy the fact that… I DID IT. Amidst the toddler tantrums, baby feeding schedule, and zombie like early rise (3 AM before family) mornings, I have two feet on the ground.
What is left of my “normal” routine as I whimper back to it? My family is still standing solid, with a few bumps and bruises. I’d like to say that I always get the balance between work and family right, but I’m feeling like a bit of a failure there. I’m actually out of my pajamas today before noon, and darn happy about that. I took the kids and dog for a morning walk today, and I actually had something to eat.
I’m hopeful that things will settle back into a groove in the next few weeks, so I can spend most of my time and attention back where it needs to be with my family first and my work during my ‘sweet afternoon’ breaks. After all, it’s the whole reason I started this blog.
Thank you all for your continued support, and please click on my shop page to visit Sweet Afternoons at Etsy if you have an extra second today.
Fox is awake…
I leave you with a new Milo painting today. Have a great rest of the week friends!
