On getting things done
Posted November 30, 2009on:
Before becoming a mother, I used to Get A Lot Done. Multiple things over the course of the day, and still have time to relax in the evening. And yet, it didn’t seem that important or fulfilling.
These days, I’m lucky if I get dinner on the table. I spend a lot of time playing and snuggling the Poptart, or we go out to various programs (Salsababies, aquafit, Mother Goose, storytime, etc) and usually after that she is done and ready for a nap of some sort. So we go home and snuggle.
Currently, she is pulling books off her shelf in the living room.
I don’t spend a lot of time on household stuff. The crockpot gets a lot of use. In fact, I’ve ordered a second crockpot with my airmiles (this one has a meat thermometer – how exciting!). The bathrooms usually get cleaned about once a week or 10 days or so. The kitchen/entry/dining room floor gets mopped once a week or so. Maybe once every two weeks.
And yet, I am fulfilled. Moreso than I’ve been in a long time.
