Life has been... slower.
It's been more family, fun, play based rather than work based.
It's been nice.
The house isn't in a much different state than what it was a week or so ago (hey we have the rest of our lives, right?) and besides yard work, a lot of the house work has even gone undone.
I'm still excited for all of our little projects. But a lot of them take a lot of time, a lot of effort and a little money. All of which we lack a bit of here and there.
I've just tried to focus on my beautiful son at the stage that he's in now, before he's walking and running and being even more independent. I don't want to miss even a moment.
I take a bazillion photos a day and share the ones that I love and enjoy the most with my family and friends. Sure, that might me anywhere from 1 to 50 a day...but hey, it's what I love.
Otherwise, I've missed Jeremy since his two week vacation is over and he's returned to school and work and I've been trying to cook more - there's something about having your own kitchen that makes you want to fill it with wonderful food.
I made .... a heck of a whole lot ... of baby food last night and then tacos. Tonight I'm making mashed potatoes and meatloaf. I actually sat down and planned out my meals for the first time in a long time and when I went to the store I spent at least $30 less than what I normally would and I swear I got twice as much.
I actually sat down and crocheted Henry a new hat last night too.
It feels nice to get back into a sort of swing of things.
