Having projects to work on that you look forward sitting down to do is soooo... fun in my book. It makes me want to have a project constantly going.
Before Crewe was born if I started a project EVERYTHING in my life was put on hold until I finished that project.
Now that Crewe is here, I have tried that approach and it has not gone over so well for our family. Quickly I have come to be okay with projects taking a bit longer to complete so that we can maintain some sanity in our household.
Untightening that grip on things that are so engrained in who I am is hard, but most days refreshing. I like being able to look at myself and see that I am adaptable and capable change. ;-)
I would go so far to say that it has allowed me to ease up a bit on feeling like I have to clean up the toys in our house that accrue 10 times a day.
Now don't get me wrong... I still do my 20 minute shake down before guest stop by, because in my head they are going to ask to see a tour of the whole house, even though they hardly ever do... which then makes me want to
force offer a house tour just so my hard work was not in vain.
It is also important so that when they walk out of the door I can look at my husband with my
"SEE? It was worth the temporary insanity for me to clean the cobweb's, scrub the bathtubs, mop the floors" face.
All that to say I have 2 big DIY projects going on right now which makes blogging slow for me. The first one being
Crewe's Halloween Costume
And the second
DIY tufted headboard- love it? Yes! Very time consuming with a toddler? Yes
That being said.. here is a photo sneak of our past week-ish
|Mommy and Crewe went to the grocery store for the 2nd time by ourselves in 2 years; |
however, it will become a regular, now that Mommy expereinced 11:00am Wal-Mart
lines versus 7:00pm Wal Mart lines.
|Hung out with our favs again|
|Enjoyed some yummy pancakes|
|Searched for water while being chased by coyotes|
|Had some drinks at a rooftop bar, which was FAB by the way|
|Made 42 buttons.... my thumbs are still numb|
|And finally slept off our late night partying ways|
Hope ya'lls week is going just as fab!
