I’ve got my coffee, my raisin bran and a very sleepy baby next to me (who is not sleeping.) What I don’t have? Time. (and a sleeping baby.)
I can not believe it’s Friday, moreso, I can’t believe it’s Memorial Day weekend. This week has just flown by and here I sit again, on Friday, telling you about how I can’t believe it’s Friday again.
This week hasn’t just flown by, it’s been incredibly chaotic. Remember that photo shoot I was nervous about last week? Well, it was on Saturday and it went really well. So well that I’m inspired to repolish my photography website and really (sortakinda) start promoting my business. This week was spent investigating, learning and inquiring about all things that have to do with having a photography business.
Most importantly, I’m working on IMPROVING.
This wrapped around the time that I’m nursing, changing diapers, doing laundry, giving snacks to my kids and all of the neighborhood kids and making healthy dinners. My stomach has been in a knot all week long trying to get everything done. Don’t you hate that feeling? I can’t stand it.
So, today, my mother-in-law is taking Eli for four hours while I, well, I don’t know, I plan to shop, clean, continue editing photos and get proofs to my client and maybe even shower.
Showering would be good. (for everyone. Trust me.)
This weekend, my sister and niece and their families are coming into town and I’m hoping to let go of everything that doesn’t have to do with FAMILY. That will be my focus. And I’m excited.
And in two or three weeks, when Brian is on vacation? We are unplugging EVERYTHING. Even our cell phones for three days. (did anyone see that Oprah? I didn’t actually see it, I just heard it in the background for 10 minutes and became totally inspired.)
This weekend, I’ll also be holding the troops near and dear to my heart. I’m thinking about my incredible brother, Dan, who is serving his FOURTH damn tour in Iraq right now. I’m thinking about his wife and three kids as they muster through this holiday weekend without the presence of their Dad and husband by their side.
And the rest of the troops, everywhere? I’ll be thanking them and hanging my flag to show my support for all of those that are sacrificing so much. I hope you hang yours, too.
And Eli? Well, he loves the troops, too. And his Mommy.
shhhhh….he’s finally sleeping.
