I barely know what to do with myself. Do I stuff my face with foods that I can't eat in front of Jacob: chocolate, cookies, ice cream? Do I race around like a maniac trying to organize things in a timely fashion instead of the process taking three days to accomplish? Do I sit and stare at the walls, take a bath, meditate all day, polish my toenails, read a book??!!!
I decided on a combination of those things: eating a neighbour's amazing homemade granola bars, finish vacuuming and mopping the upstairs, rearranging books on the bookshelves, sewing some of Jacob's quilt, meditating and now, writing about all of it. Oh, and I went to yoga.
It has been great. I love my family beyond words. But when Jacob is around, I cannot think straight much less get many things accomplished. And as much as I am all about giving my attention to my child, I do have to do some grownup things or I go CRAZY!!!! We all know that's not pretty. It feels amazing to be with only my thoughts... all.... day..... long. I've also noticed that the time goes by much faster this way...
