Been staring at my screen for what feels like 45 minutes. How long actually have I been staring at my screen? Who knows. 🙂
So what’s been going on? Quite a bit.
I’ve started to develop a routine. For a week now, I’ve been getting up early to write, update, exercise, eat breakfast, and just make the most of my day. I’ve been quite efficient lately. Those full-day lazy days seem to be just part of my faded memory. But then again, I’ve got a 3-day memory capacity, for the most part. Might at as well just call me, Dory; I’m friendly, fun, but forgetful…sometimes :).
Near the end of my day, I’ve been making sure the girls have bathed, have had their snack, ready for bed, sink cleared, living room tidy, toys put away, and alarms set. So I’ve gotten the beginning and ending routines down so far. As for the in-between, it’s still a work in progress. I am optimistic 🙂
This may have been obvious to many and I may have understood it before, but there is 24 hours in a day (like duh, right?!). I know. Lately, I’ve been just deeply appreciating the act of waking up in the morning. I’ve been telling myself that life is short, tomorrow is not guaranteed, it’s likely to come, but not for sure, so try to make the most of it. I think I have been steadily maximizing my day. And guess what? I feel great and am very proud of the progress I have been making. Anyone else feel this way?
Maybe this is just part of the journey of becoming a bigger, better, stronger Mom. Cheers to all Moms (and Dads) out there doing what they have to for the well-being of their family. Here’s to being parents 🙂
Anyway, this Jen-of-all-trades (aka Mom), has some rejuvenating to do. So it’s farewell for now. Tomorrow’s a new day!
Before I go, I would like to thank You for the gift of today. Thank You for Life! May we love others as we love ourselves :)!
Love Always, Jen
