The decorations are down, the festivities are over and tomorrow everyone heads back to work and school.
Suddenly I'm left with morning and afternoons to myself to write, finish art/craft projects and nap at my own leisure.
And oddly, I'm kind of bummed about it.
I've enjoyed the last two weeks more than I thought which is always a good thing right?
Not realizing the blessings you have coming and then being astounded when you receive them?
I enjoyed having Sweet Pea off and doing fun things, just she and I.
Then we had Babe home for a week and we ran errands, laughed, watched movies, read and just enjoyed each others company.
It's exactly what we needed.
In the coming weeks I know things will pick up as we prepare for our little man's arrival and we will be busy and distracted with tiny things.
I also know that I am moving slower and slower and am losing my "umph" so to speak.
It's just not there like it was a few weeks ago.
So I am cherishing this time.
Granted there are days when I forget that I am pregnant and attempt to hop out of bed or off the couch like I could 7 months ago, and am quickly reminded how round and awkward I am.
I am still however obsessed with decorating and adding more color.
The lack of Holiday decor is definitely fueling that as well but it's less of a
"OMG. I MUST DO THIS IMMEDIATELY" type of feeling and more like an "okay so if I get an opportunity to do this, then I will."
I think my hubby will like that more as there is less of a sense of crazy-pregnant-lady urgency on my part.
I just want this space to be cozy and comfy.
I'm realizing that I need to slow down and, as much as I hate to admit, I can't do everything that tickles my fancy right now.
I might not be able to even do it for a while so I need to just relax and let it go.
So I'm working on that.
I'm going to put my feet up and make an effort to 'be still' as much as I can and listen to my body more.
I'll let you know how that works out for me.
