At this moment I am …
drinking water to be followed by my green shake.
appreciating the quiet before the boys are awake. I seem to be the only one in our family who prefers to ease into the day. They wake up at full volume.
watching the rain wearily. But I’m so thankful it’s not hot I’m not complaining.
laughing at my list of things to do but am determined to get more of these fun projects out of my head and into our world.
eating less than I used to and it is enough.
willing the boys to stay asleep long enough for me to write this and shower. That’s like winning the lottery for this work at home mama.
watching very little television but we did just finish House of Cards. Finally. Wow. Just Wow.
prepping for another push on my Raising the Hardy Boys book.
opening too many windows on my browser.
sleeping too little, but better these days.
remembering how just a year ago at this time I got a concussion and how different my life was then, just one short year ago and also missing my friends from work, but the deadlines not so much.
brainstorming ideas for my next column.
wearing pants and shirts that haven’t fit in a long time. Love that.
considering how quickly summer is going and realizing I’m going to miss Sammy when he’s away at school all day. Trying to remember that when he’s home all day now.
making a Lego surprise for the boys. Turns out I am the mom who goes to the store with a Lego head in her pocket to make sure the spray paint is a perfect match. Yes I did.
thankful for all of it.
I’m surprised I’ve only done this type of post twice because I like reading them on other blogs so much. Reading the two I did I’m glad for just that much because of the simple snap shot it offers.
Which is always the way with personal writing. People think more is better, mandatory even. But please believe me when I say some is better than none. One diary entry a week, or even a year still leaves a record of what mattered, especially if you let yourself believe today’s minutia makes for tomorrow’s marvels.
If you want to try it yourself, you and don’t have a blog or journal (I’d love to help you reconsider that!) post your answers in the comments or email me. It’s fun! These two links have a few different prompts than I used today. I wanted to make the answers quick and move to the next, which I encourage you to do as well. This isn’t homework, there are no wrong answers. It’s not all of the things you are doing currently, just whatever pops into your mind.
So, also – I hate to be super self-promotey but that’s kind of a thing for people who are trying to carve out some income doing their own thing – I need you guys is what I’m saying.
And, if I haven’t pushed it too far all ready – could you take a moment and subscribe to Nathalie’s Notes in the box below? You’ll get a note in your inbox whenever there’s a new post and I’ll feel kinda awesome until I get the notification that someone else unsubscribed and then I’ll be all angsty again. It’s just the circle of (a blogger’s) life.
