Today Eric went to orientation for his job. I haven't been a stay at home mom without Eric here (since he's been out of work for so long) since August. I have been lazy lately, admittedly and I wanted to put an end to that today and make a fresh start. So I planned out the day to make sure that I wouldn't revert to my lazy ways and actually stay productive and have fun with Marah too.
So I'm exhausted. LOL It will take some getting used to I discovered. Marah was pretty good today thankfully, but yeah, I didn't take a nap which I've grown quite fond of, I went grocery shopping with her and since Eric wasn't home I had to make two trips up to the third floor of our building with arms loaded with groceries. Since I've been pregnant this is really a very difficult task and takes my breath away. I have been making Eric do this chore because I always feel like I'm going to have an asthma attack when I've done it lately.
Anyway, I made it through that and then Marah and I crafted a bit and sang songs and danced. I did the dishes and then made Marah's lunch and she went down for a nap. I managed to get the laundry folded that has been neglected the last week and then Marah and I went to get Jenna. When we got home the girls got their bikes out and played/rode for a while. It was so nice to be able to let them do that! Marah has had cabin fever this winter. It's such a depressing time. It finally is spring though (a cold one, but that's normal and it's actually warm for us at 40 degrees). Almost all the snow has melted though I know we are in for probably one more good snow fall before it's over.
Now I'm just beat and I have to make supper and I don't want to. I'm all crabby and I hate that. It probably doesn't sound like a very tiring day :) but for me it was. I hope that doesn't make me a major wimp.
I got a layout done yesterday. It took forever! I'm still so out of my scrapping zone and it feels almost foreign to me. It's sad. I think about how much things have changed for me since a year ago. Scrapping was my life! Now I have to force myself to do it. I still enjoy it and I'm always thrilled when I finish a page, but I don't want to do it all the time like before. And forget about designing anything! I have no creativity for that still. I hope it will come back sometime soon cause I could really use the extra money, but so far no luck.
Is anyone besides my mom still out there reading? :)
