It must be something about spring and having a fresh start or new beginning or clean slate or something like that.
I'm getting that nesting feeling back (and no, I'm not pregnant, don't you dare even think it) and I feel like cleaning. I feel like organizing our apartment and purging our drawers.
The thing is, I really have to go for it when I get that urge because it doesn't always last long. Only I have this little person interrupting my momentum. Just the time it takes to sit and feed him and I'm back to wanting to curl up with a book and hold him while he sleeps. I end up with a lot of half-done projects.
I'm still not working so I feel the need to do more at home. I've cooked dinner twice in the past week which just never happens and I have a meal planned for tomorrow. I'm shooting for every other day. Don't laugh, that's a big step for me! B does almost all of the cooking around here. I'll admit though that I still have no idea how to juggle getting dinner on the table and getting the baby bathed and fed. B's schedule varies and sometimes he gets home right at the time I'm in the nighttime routine.
I'm trying hard to get Peanut into more of a routine with naps, feeding, bathtime and bed.
I keep thinking of things and adding it to my to do list.
I know, people do these things every day. They raise children, make dinner, talk with their friends, family and partners, keep a clean house, work, homeschool, run errands, read, write and play with their kids. I just have no idea how. On any given day I'm lucky to pick 2 and get those done.
Today I need to get my Red Egg and Ginger thank you's done, bake dessert for dinner with friends tonight, get my mammogram, and clean the apartment.
Chances are I'll complete 2 out of 4 of those tasks.
I sure hope dessert comes out :)
