My day starts at 5:15 when I help get the hubby out the door for work. I like that. I know that he eats good for his long day and once he's gone I get some time to myself before kiddo craziness ensues. You know, the craziness of getting 3 kiddos ready for school. First there's the gripes about having to wake up, then what to wear (my 13er mostly...I never had this problem...ha!), then breakfast, then lunch (why can't school lunches always taste good, I hate making lunch), then the gathering of everything needed for the day, then teeth scrubbing, then grab my coffee-to-go, then the rushing to the car, then off to 2 different school (next year it will be 3 every day...oh the joy!), then goodbye hugs, the love ya's, then it's suddenly quiet.
I am done by 8am (usually). It's a crazy 3 hours. I have until 3pm to start collecting everyone.
I take a deep breath and then...hmmmmmmmm...what now?!
What to do with those 7 hours?
What ends up happening it that I get nothing done as I have too much time. I have to/need to find something for myself, something I want to do, something I love doing and make a little money doing it. I just don't yet know what that is. I am not complaining..I love being a mom and wife. They just don't need me like they once did. So now it's time to put some focus on me and I'm not very good at that...I need to learn...quickly or I might go wacko!
So to get my blood flowing each day, I have started walking every morning (again). I take my camera with me most days because the houses here in WG are amazing.
I should post them today but I am feeling lazy. I would have to get up, find my camera, find the cord for downloading, download the pics to my comp, put them in the right folder, then upload them onto here, and then write about them. I know, it sounds whiney, it is whiney, my kiddos taught me well.
OK, alright...enough whining...here are a few lovely houses I saw yesterday as we walked home from school. Do you think these people mind if I take these pics of their houses? I hope not!
|The colors are awful but I love the drive through portico leading to the garage|
|Lovely! A big front porch like this would be just lovely!|
|This house was for sale for the longest time and it's just sold and the people have moved in. It's so huge! It needs a little TLC...can't wait to see what they do with it!|
Ahhhh...itt feels good to have that done and there will be more to come! I found an even better street with some pretty amazing old houses on my walk this morning...now I only need a better camera.
Come visit again!
