As much as I'd like to blog regularly, it's really hard for me. I'm so busy and exhausted most of the time. Other Moms will most likely understand this feeling.
I often wonder if I will become one of those Mom who horribly overschedules their children since I do this to myself. Maybe I will protect the Bug's time more than my own. I like to think that I will anyway. I am a firm believer in children having time to be children. I am also a firm believer in the power of imagination. I have always been a person who can keep myself occupied. So far, the Bug is turning out to be much the same way. Maybe this will change as time goes on, I don't know. Sometimes I feel like these kids who have every second of tjheir day filled up have no time to just be themselves and sit and daydream. I was a big daydreamer. I got A's (back then it was S+'s) on every report card, but every single one commented on my daydreaming. I expect no less from the Bug.
I haven't had time to read since Thanksgiving. I'm still waiting on the book that
and I are reading for our mini-bookclub. Until then, I've started some spiritual reading: Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell. It's a really interesting look at Christianity, and praises the questioning of one's faith. I like this approach, and it's interesting that this person lives in my hometown.
This weekend I will make time for a cup of coffee and a trip to the bookstore. That's my #1 goal. Nothing else will get me into the holiday spirit.
