Well, not entirely. But I did make a to-do list and got most of it done. How, you ask? Aimed small. As a working-outside-of-the-house mom of three who is also finishing her masters, I've learned how to do it. Is my house clean? no. Do I have a million projects left to do? yes. But I got done what I put on my to-do list. My dream is to one day be able to sit around a think of something to do.
I was talking to a dear friend, and we started discussing an idea I've had for a while. I really think it would be great to live away from the craziness with a few other families and be able to survive on our own. We would grow our own food, teach our own children, and lean on each other. This has been my dream for a while.
I don't want my children to remember me behind a computer working. Or stressed out to the max. That is what they see now. Not that we don't have fun. They get to do a lot of fun things. We go a lot of fun places. But I have been thinking, "What do I want my children to remember of their childhoods?"
Maybe I just need to find the balance.
