I seriously don’t know what I used to do with my time before Misty.
I suppose having a child takes away a lot of your YOU time, so when you get a few minutes to yourself, you really appreciate it. I’m so productive these days.
I also tend to take on about a million projects at once…. start one, get about 1/10 of the way through, and then get an idea for something else. Over commit myself? More like committing to sew a million things for the wedding and procrastinating over it for months and months…. hence panicked sewing mode today.
Strange green salad concoctions.
It’s amazing what you can actually get achieved in ONE day (it helps when your little “alarm clock” goes off before 5am – a very persistent clock at that, thanks Misty)…. I honestly don’t know what I used to do with my time.
I never even used to have real hobbies…. during the week it was just work, eat, maybe watch a bit of TV and go to sleep. Weekends? Who can remember? Sleeping it all off most likely. (Work, party, sleep, recover, work). Nowadays it’s Misty adventures, big walks, throwing the ball for Boosty at the park, yoga, cooking cooking cooking, house projects, gardening, taking photos, swimming, writing, sewing, listening to records. It may sounds boring and not as exciting and glamorous as the hip’n'happening bar crawl/party scene but I wouldn’t want to go back to that lifestyle for anything. I don’t know, having Misty has made me appreciate LIFE – to get into it and LIVE – not just “exist” and go through the motions.
Misty has made me discover so much more about ME, and you know what? This Lou character ain’t so bad. I kinda like her.
