yes, the first day home with no little ones (and minus one big one) at all, the first time in years for me, i cried. i did. like a baby. i am stressed out. these big changes are not easy to adjust to overnight. i am a girl who likes to count on routines. perhaps too much so. now, quite honestly, i feel a bit lost. so maybe a little wish list of things to spread my own wings a bit would be good to see in print. some self motivation on for my low days.
so here goes.
i'd like to...
stretch my legs and take morning walks
get back to drinking tea and honey
sew a queen size quilt. maybe a king. (we do need a new bed one day soon)
write some letters and mail them.
make some brothy soups.
clean out our basement. for real. PURGE.
simplify simplify simplify
buy some new wool socks for fall and winter. (my seasonal splurge each year)
catch up writing in the kids's journals! (so behind on this. so very behind.)
find a book of mary oliver's poetry and devour every.beautiful.word.
knit a hat. a real hat this year, even if it hurts.
sew some new prayer flags for my soon to be bare trees. winter trees are prettier with prayer flags.
figure out a better system to organize my massive amounts of photos..
make homemade apple cider doughnuts.
go to a movie.
ok that's a good start.
