Go ahead, laugh. I'll wait.
Now that I AM that stay at home mom that does things at the school and cheers for my kids, I seem to have even less time to work on my projects, let alone keep the house clean or cook every night. While part of that is just life (and the realization that it doesnt end at 5pm), part of it is because I don't schedule my time as well as I'd like. I don't want to be so structured that I cant be spontaneous, but I need to do something when my house is starting to look like an episode of Hoarders. I'm realizing I can't do it all (nor do I want to) and if my time is limited, I need to get rid of extra fluff that gets in the way.
I took that first step yesterday when I didn't post for NaBloPoMo. This year has been more stressful than fun and when that happens it's time to get rid of it.
Obviously I still plan on blogging, but not when I really dont feel like it. Another thing that lacks inspiration is the Totally Useless Stitch A Long (TuSal). While I enjoyed it in the beginning, it's gotten to the point where I just see a mess. She is doing another year of TuSal, but I decided that I wouldn't sign back up. In fact I decided that I won't finish the year out.
While these are just two small little things, they are HUGE for me. Once I decide to start something, I dont like quitting before it's finished. If I say I'm going to do something, I'm going to do it. It's the principle of the matter, not so much the consequences if it doesnt get done. I'm great at telling others if something isnt working out to let it go, but I tend to avoid that advice when it comes to me. *I* can handle it.
So there you have it. One small step for my household, one giant step for my sanity.
Cuz if mamma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy!
Guess where my next stop will be???
