Keep dreaming

When I realized I was actually going to have my dream career I daydreamed about things I would accomplish. Aside from the obvious extensive list of things I would be doing for and with my child I felt like now I could become the mom and woman I always wanted to be. I tend to be an overly ambitious person. I make iffy choices sometimes. For example, the other day I tried skipping Lila's first nap and going to a consignment sale after cleaning an office (with Lila in tow for that as well). In a perfect world this might have been beneficial. In my world the sale was total crap and Lila threw Cheerios everywhere.

I digress...so, there is this long list of things I feel ambitious about. Tonight at girls dinner my desire to jar and preserve things came back up due to Patty's foray into doing just that. I made one jar of pickles and took gobs of proud pictures and posted it on my blog. Patty has things jarred everywhere in her house...I am SO behind. Anyway, that got me thinking about all of the things I want to do (in no particular order):

- sewing everything and anything
- walking/running every day
- tot school (post coming ASAP once I get started....I did say ASAP so now I'm committed)
- making my house and my life as green as possible
- gardening things I can eat....without letting them be taken over by bugs....
- writing a book
- reading more than one book
- going to the library
- going to tutor at Livsey (really? that's just silly)
- waking up before Lila to shower

I could go on and on, but I will spare you. I'm not saying I haven't done these things. I've half done some of them. I am blaming my lack of getting on the ball on Carson and Lila. Yes, I said it. I am blaming my laziness on babies. But seriously, between the two of them I can't seem to get up off the floor long enough to accomplish something. Case in point (please don't be jealous by how hot I look):
(I had to post this one too because the expressions are even more priceless than the first one)

Let's be honest. I wouldn't have it any other way. I mean, look at them. You can't tell me you aren't jealous of my life. BUT, this list has now (kind of) motivated me. I guess we'll see how long that lasts.


  1. I just love Carson's little facial expressions! And Lila seems so content.

    Don't be too hard on yourself either - you are doing so much and have accomplished so much too! <3

  2. HaHa...I love the second photo! I think you are well on your way to accomplishing the goals on your list! :)
