Now that I am, essentially, a "stay-at-home mom" - I look forward to once a week, an evening or morning I get all to myself. While Berlyn is keeping her Daddy busy, I can revert back to what life was like "pre-Berlyn". Trust me; every Mommy needs a break. Especially a single one.
So, with my newfound "freedom"; what have I been doing? Well, for starters, I am able to blog a bit more. I am spending my time reading Psychology textbooks from the 1970's (hello, nerd!) and the 3rd "Twilight" book. I also am emersing myself in making my GIGANTIC inspiration board (that's been a work in progress for nearly 3 months) and also, music - my truest love. I recently replaced my (stolen) iPod and am proudly up to 10,778 songs...with the capacity for about, oh, 30,000 more. Teehee!
And, of course, getting to spend more time with my baby girl. We color. We play "people" and "house" and read countless books. We run around my parents giant backyard. The weather is crisp and beautiful and I'm really getting to enjoy it this year.
I'm daydreaming about the future and all the things I want to (and plan on) doing. But, this time around I plan on actually following them through. I am so excited to see where I (and Berlyn) are in one year. I just don't want to continue the cycle of "beginning....but never finishing". Something's gotta give.
