Busy can be good, but I'm going to enjoy the lack of busy for a while.
A few thoughts and observations after my first week at home:
*There are so many hours in the day! Before, it seemed that I simply couldn't fit everything in, and all of a sudden, I am blessed with the opportunity to make choices as to how I want to fill all the hours of our days.
*I am a horrible baseball pitcher. I'm really going to have to improve my skills if I'm going to be able to keep up with this family.
*I need to stock up on snacks. The boys were provided snacks at their preschool, so I guess I got used to that. I'm realizing I need to have more available at home. Same goes for milk. I don't even drink milk, but my three boys go through about three gallons a week!
*We are messy! I also got used to the boys not being at home every day, which meant that the messes were somewhat limited. Now we're making messes all day long! I must get better about making them clean up after every activity.
*I can already tell that it will be crucial for me to carve out some me-time during the week. I've been waking up early enough to exercise before they wake up, and that helps; but I'll need to find more time here and there to enjoy some quiet.
*It's a lot easier to stay physically active when you're not stuck in front of a computer all day. I am walking and pitching and swinging and wrestling and throwing and chasing and... phew!
