For the past few days I've been a very busy woman. My busyness doesn't only revolve around my career, but I've been a busy mom and wife.
To you this might be a complete shock, but for the past three years (since I became a "career" woman) I haven't had time to do the laundry, my husband has been doing it. Laundry has ALWAYS been the last on my to-do list. Recently, I looked over my obligations, career goals, mommy goals & priorities. I realized that I am not as busy as I thought I was. If I did happen to be busy it's because I put myself in that position by picking up work that I shouldn't. I now only pick up work that I want to do. That decision has left me with time to take care of Tin's needs like taking him to the park for a few hours or spending that time one on one with him. I've also had time to do the laundry! It's been almost two or three weeks. To me, that is a huge accompaniment.
Since its summer time there had been many play dates in our horizon. Everyday that I have off, we spend it with some friends or if weather permits go exploring our city. Life has been mostly organized and low key despite me having 2 blogs, 2 magazines I regularly contribute to and my photography work, oh plus the extra work that I like to do like submit to other magazines & stitching. It's been so great that I have time to work on a shop and finally make some money from my "career". Honestly, ALL the credit goes to God as without His wisdom and help I wouldn't be where I am today. I see so much fruit in my life that's He has blessed me with.
So that's where I've been lately. With a busy summer ahead I am so happy that my life is somewhat in categories.
After writing this post in the morning, I turned into the worst mommy ( insert sigh). Why can't I be a super mommy on top of being the best at what I do with a clean house and dinner always on time?! Thankful for a day off tomorrow as I think my son and I will need a mommy and son date. Bring on the cafe's, walks & fishing.
Beautiful photos, Annetta! I feel like I had a day off with you. and I'm glad you are getting more balance in your life – it can be tricky and one has to get more and more organized to not feel overwhelmed.ReplyDelete
Tin is really the cutest boy!
Wow, I can't believe how well you are doing with so many different commitments, I'm super impressed! Lovely photos, too.ReplyDelete
I still can't believe it, but I work only a few blocks from the Seattle ferris wheel thing and I still haven't ridden it! I really need to get on that. :-)
