Figuring it All Out
I have fallen off the wagon, and it's hard to get back on. How are ya, friends?!
Our George 2 months old today. Whoop whoop!
He is an angel. Really, he is pure sweetness. But I do wish he would sleep. through. the. night. Someone who weighs 45 lbs should sleep longer stretches. In time, I know he'll get there.
Besides endless child rearing, I've been doing a lot of thinking. I'm turning 30 next month and perhaps that's caused much reflection. I want to be good at a few things. Definitely taking care of my family - I want to do that well. But there are a few other things I would like to be proficient in.
I want to be well-versed in the Scriptures. I've been a Christian all my life, and I've never read the entire Bible. I've wondered if I should set aside a big piece of time to do this. My sister-in-law is reading the entire Bible for Lent. I love this idea.
I want to be a master of Pilates. Eleven months after Laurie was born, a friend told me about Pilates. I hit it up hard core and it is my favorite exercise ever.
I have a burning desire to sew clothes for Laurie. She's my only girl, and I wish I could find time to make a pile of sun dresses for her to wear this spring and summer. The ones I've made her in the past are my favorite things she wears.
I want to blog consistently for the fun of it. Blogging is my hobby. I wish I could keep it up and not fall off the wagon. I'd like to get more of the posts in my head onto the screen.
I want to read more. This is probably the thing I do the most of now. I read when I'm feeding George, at rest time, and for a few minutes when I get in bed at night. But I want to do more of it.
Are these things too much to ask? Yes, yes they are. Because I have been interrupted no less than 700 times while writing this post.
I'm craving some adult activities to call my own. And 30 minutes of "free" time everyday is just not enough to fit it all in.
First world problems, I know. But I don't want to give up the things I love entirely. I may never figure it out, but I probably will never quit trying.
Its better to have goals than to not have goals. That's what I always say.
