I know this sounds odd to say, but I'm glad this weekend is over. It was crazy busy, nothing went according to plan, and both my children (Ethan and the dog) were driving me nutso. So, I'm glad it's Monday and things can get back on an orderly schedule around here.
Lately I have been full (like over the top full) of creativity which is awesome! The only bad thing is that I'm the type of person where when I have an idea pop into my head.....it must be done immediately or it's gone forever or I might automatically combust.
Unfortunately this many ideas lead to a thousand and one errands, a very messy house and half finished projects laying around everywhere. I'm feeling productive though and at the moment, that's what matters most.
This is my first really creative moment as a mom though and I'm finding out it's not as easy as it once was. I can't just hop in my car when the mood strikes me and head out to the craft store and then go visit 5 other stores because the first ones didn't have the exact thing I wanted. It all takes separate days.
I've also found I can't be good at everything all at once. If I'm creative the house looks like a disaster zone. If I have a super clean house then nothing else got done. Life is definitely a balancing act these days.
Although I still have a thousand and one fun projects I want to do. It's getting put on hold this Monday so I can get our home life back in order. Today I'll be yoga pant wearing house keeper and cook. Tomorrow maybe I'll go back to feeding my creative bug because honestly...it's fun and I really don't want it to go away!
Happy Monday Ya'll!
