This has been my first week as a stay at home Mother and not working outside the home Mother. It hasn’t quite played out how I planned, which with my personality isn’t exactly the easiest for me.
Let me give you a run down of my week.
My goal for my steps per day is slacking – I think it’s because I made a snarky remark on Facebook on my first day at home to my competitors. Currently eating crow…… somewhat not tasty!
My goal of tearing into my den/craft room and organizing our lives in there didn’t happen, instead I have been driving an hour one way to sit by my father’s bedside in ICU.
The homemade jelly I made, two of the three batches were too runny. Not funny. It tastes delish but I can’t sell it if its running off the toast! This does not sit well with that perfection mindset. But I will say I adjusted the recipe and the next batches came out lovely and not runny!
Time with my youngest daughter, not much. She’s been to grandmas and sissy’s. She’s had a great time, but my plan was to spend as much time with her as I could in the 27 days I had before she heads off to first grade. She’s doing fine but I think feeling alittle lost so to speak.
My plans to fix good homecooked meals each night, only happened twice this week. I must say though the meatloaf was really good I made and the hubs loved it!
On the days I have been home, I have had to run to town to get items or pay bills. I’m ready to just be home. I don’t think that will occur anytime soon as I am needed elsewhere I think for awhile. I don’t really know the plan, but this transition has been turned upside down.
Honestly though, when I am home, I feel alittle lost anyway. This too shall pass.
