Dealing with – finances, marriage, motherhood, getting things moved, finances, creativity block, oh and did I say finances!

Thankful for – being a child of God, who loves me more than I can imagine.  A hardworking husband, who is just trying to do his best, despite his shortcomings.  An awesome mom, who I’ve gained a whole new respect for since becoming a mother.  A sweet little boy, who will turn 1 year old next month (wha???)!

Pondering – all things creative, and trying to brainstorm what to add to my shop next.  Also, how much longer I want to breastfeed.  I’m absolutely going until next month when my son is a year, but I’m leaning towards baby-led.  I’m just not sure if he is!

Learning – more and more about web/blog design, and loving every minute of it.  I think I’m on the cusp of finding me niche.

Feeling – a mix of emotions.  My anxiety isn’t too bad, but now I’m just plain out stress and a bit apprehensive.  See above.

Loving – life in general, but that fact that I’m pushing myself to be better at my current endeavors.

What I need/want/have to do – Read to my son daily, work with him on walking, sitting him on his potty to get him familiar with it (I know its early, but we’re just introducing, so he gets an idea of what it is.), focusing on my marriage, going to bed earlier, taking care of myself, and drinking tons more water.  And maybe a little bit of shopping, once the checkbook is balanced.

  1. I’m dealing with finances too, as well as sending kids off to school in a week and my mother coming back from her vacation which means we go back to her schedule. Creativity is always a good thing! And finding a niche as a designer can be helpful in many cases!

  2. Can totally relate to your wondering about when to stop breastfeeding, although for me that was almost 4 years ago! (my youngest if five!). Somehow it happened naturally with my kids, with a little push from me; I’m sure you’ll find that too! Thanks for sharing! (I found you on the link-up)

  3. I think we all deal with finances a lot more once we have kids. We begin to deal with things we never had to before. As for weaning, you’ll know when the time is right. It is kind of hard because it is such a precious time with our little ones. Once each one of mine started walking thats when I began potty training.
