I didn’t leave the house at all yesterday. And I won’t be leaving the house tomorrow. That’s just how my Thursdays and Saturdays are. So I desperately want to get out of the house today. Friday is Jamie’s day off, so we usually do something fun. But the playset people are here power-washing, so we have to stay until they leave. And there are so many things I want to do, but I feel like I’m tied down because every 3 hours I have to stop, sit down for an hour to feed Charlotte, burp her, and get her changed. Which really only leaves a 2 hour window to do something in, but before I can do something I need to interact and play with Charlotte, after all, isn’t that my job??. So I’m left with about an hour to an hour and a half to get something done.
I want to rearrange my bedroom. I want to set up my craft closet. I want to start my coupon binder. I want to start and finish one of my sewing projects. I don’t want to clean the house. I don’t want to do laundry. I want the dogs to be outside b/c they smell. I want to swing on my swingset. I want to go for a lovely walk through the woods. I want to take a long shower. I want to sit outside and read a book. I don’t want to be inside the house.
But here I am. I feed Charlotte again in 45 minutes, but she’ll probably wake up in another 15 minutes … so the long shower idea is out the window again. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a stay home mommy, I really do. I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. But today I am just antsy and want to scream. Ever have a day like that? What did you do?
PS- I really want this.
