A Surprisingly Good Day

I don't know why I get so restless when I'm pregnant, but I can't seem to sit still for more than a few minutes at a time, or focus for that matter. Kelcey took the kids fishing, but I opted out, it's not my favorite thing in the world. He says I deceived him when we were dating because I used to ALWAYS go with him. For the record it doesn't mean I liked fishing, it was him I was after...anyway, what was I saying? Oh that's right, I'm extremely restless. I decided while everyone was gone I would just go do whatever came to mind. Without dragging kids around this is unheard of, so I wanted to take advantage. I thought I could get some good meditation in, maybe read some inspirational books, possibly walk around the temple, or window shop. So I headed to Barnes and Noble. I could not sit still, or get comfortable, or relax, or even comprehend what I was reading...grrr. Why is it when I have free time the things I usually love to do become, I don't know, not as appealing? So needless to say I left. I then thought I would go catch a movie, but right now there is nothing I have a desire to see, at least not without Kelcey. So then I had to go get all practical and run some errands. All those who wanted Shakeology samples they are finally on their way...HURRAY! I get so distracted sometimes...sorry. Where was I?

Oh ya, so I did get me a movie from Redbox, but I folded laundry while I watched it. The movie was long and boring...I'm on a real bad streak with movies right now. And finally the family returned hungry and wanting my attention...sigh.

I think it's all kind of funny actually. I realized as I was doing things alone that the kids really do make my life more exciting. They definitely keep my energy focused, or at least keep me distracted enough that I don't notice when I'm restless. And honestly, they are my focus. I probably could have been more productive today, or gotten more things done with my business, but my head just wasn't in it. Have you ever had a time when you didn't really know what you wanted when you had the chance to get it? That was me today... until this moment. I'm writing this and my kids are under my feet, being silly, giggling, and asking a million questions. So what I know I want at the moment is this, my family, my kids laughing, needing my attention... and even my husband asking what's for dinner?'s been a good day.

  1. Isn't it funny how we sometimes don't know what to do with ourselves when our kids/and or husbands are out of the house?! I find myself doing the same thing right now since Kelly and the boys are fishing with Kelcey and Katelyn is over playing with Keira!
