I’ll just start by saying, I’m not very motivated today. I kinda want to do NOTHING all day long. And that’s a weird feeling, because I thrive on productivity. We had a wild, busy, extended-family-filled weekend. And while we all had fun, and the girls’ demeanor this morning suggests that may be a little over-stimulated and over-tired. Exactly the way I feel.
This summer, we purposefully didn’t over-commit to weekend plans. We had 2 or 3 busy weekends this whole summer… and the rest were wide open. I love that. I love being home with my family, playing outside with the girls, working in the garage while they nap, lazy afternoons, roadtrips to town for paintbrushes or diapers, or whatever. There’s just something about not having obligations. I don’t think enough people allow themselves this privilege. We’ve learned the art of saying ‘no’, and choosing to soak up our laid-back life.
Here’s a pic of the girls watching their daddy mow the grass from inside. Maybe my favorite picture of them… ever.
I’m loving these cooler mornings, wearing fuzzy socks and sipping my cup of coffee. Sometimes I feel a strange obligation to blog. I mean, it’s my blog… about my life. But knowing that thousands of people look at my blog everyday brings a certain pressure with it. I’m just me. I’m not really a people-pleaser so you just kinda get what you get with me. Sometimes I sit down at my computer, and without feeling like have anything to say, I just start typing what I’m feeling and thinking in that moment. Sometimes I don’t feel like blogging, so I don’t. I love that freedom. I love living a life without obligation.
This has been a whole lotta word-vomit so early on a Monday morning. Just thinkin’ out loud yo. My jumbled thoughts splattered all over the place.
