I couldn't be happier to say that I finished some serious deadlines I've been working on this last week, I'm semi up-to-date on photoshoots, my stake primary stuff hasn't really kicked in yet and the majority of big doctor stuff is done.
So, seriously, HALLELUJAH!!
I'm coming out of my shell I've been buried in for a while.
And I like it out here.
I like that I get to read again with my kids at night...they beg me for it to be their reading night and make me feel like a celebrity.
I like sitting surrounded with a sewing machine, pins, fabric, pattern pieces and Elle as I help her make her Halloween outfit.
I like being able to drop stuff and take Grace to the grocery store to buy her treats for her "junk food read-a-thon" that she's so darn excited about.
I like going on early morning runs with my husband at my side and actually going to bed the same time he does for our great pillow-talks.
I like trying to learn Coldplay's Viva La Vida on the piano before Max does.
I like sitting with Claire doing puzzles in the morning.
I even like the challenge of trying to figure out Lu's mood swings and working diligently on the art of distraction when she's ready to roll on the floor in a tantrum or blow the roof off the house with her screaming.
I like doing the stuff that makes me a mom and a wife.
And I guess some serious surges of overwhelming busy-ness help me cherish it even more.
But I hope I don't have to go back in my shell any time soon.
Cause it's great out here.
