thought for today!
i was clicking around some blogs during the little human's nap today (yep, that's right, i left the dishes in the sink!! don't tell my mother!) and i came across http://alittlebitbiased.blogspot.com
first of all, LOVE the name - very cute. then i saw this quote in her sidebar
"Do something today that doesn't have to be done again tomorrow."
- Author unknown
and it just spoke to me!
my little human is just over 18 months now, and so i haven't been at 'work' since then (i somehow seem to be doing more work than ever though!)
i was someone who always loved the working life - the people, the conversations, the challenge, the commute to and from, the preparation, the pressure, the friday night drinks....
i miss lots of things about 'working' - the differentiation between work life and home life, people seeing you as a person, and not just as a mother, the direct feeling of contributing to society, the mental stimulation, the friday night drinks....
i love lots of things about being home and raising our son too, but i don't love lots of things - and one of the main things is the DRUDGERY of doing jobs today that will have to be done again tomorrow - cooking, cleaning, washing, bathing a squirming wet monkey, wiping, changing, cleaning, dressing a whirlwind, cooking, food shopping, dishes, getting playdoh out of the carpet.....etc etc
but i love the idea of making sure that every day i do at least one thing that won't have to be done again tomorrow - craft provides that outlet for me and i am very thankful. even if it is only one thing (attach the binding, sew a few stitches, make one block, some free motion quilting) at least the outlet is there
i appreciate you all, my bloggy friends, and feel grateful to share this journey of life with you through this medium of the net.
pugs and thankful kisses
