A Quiet Morning

T's gone to my friend's house this morning. L's down for her nap. The Verizon guy's already been here to reconnect my phone and claim our line back from Comcast. They were supposed to do our internet too, but he didn't have that order, so we'll wait another day or two. I'm still stuck on the desk with the ethernet cable. Ugh! I look forward to the freedom of wireless again. It's just too hard to spend any amount of time stuck attached to the desk with small children running around.

There are so many things I could do with my morning. I can't seem to decide which I want to do first. I need to redo my study schedules and want to reassess the daily task list I've made for myself. Today is laundry day, so the washer is my background music at this point and that will continue for the day. I want to blog. I want to get my house in order. There are just really so many things that need to be done. I look forward to the day when I can feel good about sitting down with a book or just lay in a bubble bath, but for now, I will work my way toward that kind of free time.

I've adopted the idea that something is better than nothing. So, even if I only do a little bit of something it's better than sitting around being overwhelmed by everything.

I've been learning a lot about being a mom to teenagers lately. I will blog about that later. For now, I'm off to finish sweeping the kitchen and finish filling the dishwasher.

I am looking forward to that day to just sit and relax, however at the same time. Every time I say that I look at how fast they have already grown and want it to slow down. I know you can't have both at once, so I decided to live and love the moment, before it all slips away. I guess that book and bath will still be there in few years to enjoy, but the kids are not always going to be here. You are such a wonderful mom. You do so much for them and are so giving and loving. I always look up to you.
