I’m running out of ways to title my post that say “Hi, I’m dropping by to say life is good. Bye.”
Today I want to write a little bit about what’s been going on with me lately, so I decided to set a timer for five minutes and write whatever comes to mind between now and then. After that I’ll get ready and pack up the car and take the kids over to my friend’s house for a portfolio-building shoot I’m doing with her. I’m giving Jenna Cole another big push, trying to figure out if I can stay home and work for myself or if I need to think about job hunting once T2 joins T1 at his preschool next year. I’m trying not to think about the possibility that we might move again, because it’s always hovering over me like a giant question mark of doom, leaving behind any clients I’ve worked so hard to add to my base.
Only one more minute! Goodness I am slow at writing now that I’m out of practice.
My other focus lately has been switching up my life to eliminate the clutter, the things that cause me anxiety, the things that don’t bring me happiness, and replace them with the things that do. I’ve got a giant pile of stuff to give away or sell, and I’m working to restructure the way I spend my time so that I’m outside more in the evening with the kids when the light is soft. I hope it doesn’t sound sacrilegious, because it’s not meant to be, but I’ve found that being outside in nice light feeds my soul the way Mormonism used to. Fresh air and pretty light and organized spaces are the things I need more of in my life.
The timer went off so that’s all for now. Someday the kids won’t be small anymore and there will be more time for things like blogging. Instagram.com/thatwife is the best place to see what I’m up to on a daily basis.
