Weekend reading: March 4, 2017

Sweet baby boy

From Instagram: This baby boy has woken up suddenly and grumpily every morning for his 16 months…until this week. For the past 3 days he’s woken up with talking and giggles and sweet smiles. I have no idea what changed, but I’m soaking it up!

This week I took off work so that Sean could finish out some projects before we list our house next month. I started out with a big list of my own projects that I wanted to get done but quickly realized that I wasn’t going to get even a fraction of them done. Instead I went from meals to chores to school and back again without much downtime at all in the mix.

And honestly? It made me want to go back to work. Ha! I love my kids so much, and I enjoy homemaking, but as a task-oriented person, I also really like “getting things done”, and I found it a bit frustrating to not have time for that.

It was also a good reminder, though, that even with the “perfect” schedule, there’s only so much time in a day!

What I’m readingHarry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling, Getting Naked by Patrick Lencioni, and True Colors by Kristin Hannah
