There has been improvement. Communication helps and so does time...and coffee with sweet friends! All is well! My friend Tami had a wonderful post yesterday which captured a lot of what I'm feeling. What's a mom to do when she's no longer in the throws of motherhood? I don't have to cook for anyone, or do laundry for anyone but myself, although hubby brings some home, but he often does it himself! My house doesn't get dirty, grocery shopping is minimal, and I don't enjoy going out just for the sake of going out! I'm not sure where to put my focus now and so I'm not really focused on anything.
I've decided to try and accomplish "something" each day. Some of you are rolling your eyes and some of you can relate. I've started exercising and volunteering at church. Yard work is screaming at me!! I tackled some painting projects that I've been needing (not wanting...there's a difference!) to do. It's sad how I can look past what needs to be done because I've become so accustomed to ignoring it!
Got out my ASCP and some sandpaper and went to town. It didn't even take me an hour...pathetic that I've put it off for so long!!
An old table that I got at a garage sale...
And an old luggage rack that I can't remember where I found it!
It's a beautiful day here! I've been able to put my clothes on the line again (squeal of delight)! I really, really love line dried clothes. I hung my sheets out the other day and they still smell so fresh. It's a simple joy that puts a smile on my face! So I leave you with some shirts billowing in the breeze!
Enjoy the weekend!!
