My First Week

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!

  1. I've just caught up on all your recent posts. I love the little sneak peeks of your renovation - your sink sounds wonderful (chip incident aside), and the wall colours are lovely. I recall a period of adjustment when I stopped working - it took a while, and I definitely needed some structure to the days, plus some me time, but it was one of the best things I ever did. Enjoy the rest of your week - it sounds like you're having a great summer!
