What Will Homelife Be Like
What will homelife be like. I am so excited that I will be able to be home with my babies. What will it be like. I still have plans. Even though I know the babies will come first I will still have a job. I will still need to create some sort of work schedule to try to keep it straight. How is that going to work? These are the questions that come into my head.
There is way to much time to wait. I feel like I’m in the hurry up and wait syndrome. This will probably become my accountability zone. So many things to be done and so many projects to start and work on. Wondering if I will be able to cut it. I have decided I don’t like preparing for this time in my life.
It is taking way to long to get here. Counting down and watching the clock until have to leave work everyday is not a good thing. I keep trying to enjoy where I am at, but it’s difficult. While I like most of the people sometimes following the process is upsetting. Because sometimes the process stops the job from being done.
I’m sure I will be pretty busy at home. Having a hard time waiting to get there. I have lists and notes and brainstorming sessions in my pockets and have begun building my editorial calendar. Little papers with notes shoved in my bag. I have notes everywhere. I am ready to start my journey. But I have to wait. Waiting has never been easy. However it is a good lesson in patience and I could always use a little more of that.
So… What will it be like? To be home. To get up when I’m ready. Well I already now that I’m planning on getting up around six and even if I don’t, the babies will make me get up around that time anyways. I’m going to sit down and get to enjoy my coffee. I will actually be able to use my coffee maker. As opposed to huge amounts of instant coffee in my protein shakes.
Who wants to go to work in their pajamas? I do. I do. Now my office at home will be my work. My desk will be where I spend a lot of time. How exciting I will get to do something I have wanted to do for so long. Writing. I may not be very good now but with practice I believe I can be very good. Maybe good enough to finish the book I started.
I haven’t been getting enough sleep and I will be able to take a nap when the babies lay down. I always seem to be tired. Not only sleepy but physically and mentally exhausted. Rest is important for everyone. There is more than one type of rest. Sometimes getting rest can be as simple as getting to do something we like or want to do.
Homelife includes cleaning
Then there is also the cleaning. My house has been a wreck. So, of course, I also have been a wreck. Who else feels like this. I look at my floor and think to myself ” This needs to cleaned this”. But I’m so tired that I just need to sit down. The kind of person I am is not usually a lazy but I’m thinking that I am moving real close to that zone. It’s not something I like. So obviously I have gotten out of the cleanliness habit.
One thing is for sure. I will not run out of projects for a while because my house has been suffering for a while. It is ever in need of dusting and purging. Maybe I could have a yard sale of everything we don’t need. It will still be summer when I start all of this but I don’t know how long it will take to get it all situated. You know how long it actually takes to purge? However long it takes to go through everything.
Well… Either way, I have a lot of work in front of me. Can hardly wait till I get to tackle it all. We will see how it goes. I’m looking forward to reporting it all. I have so many ideas and no idea how to put it all together. But I am a work in progress.
