I am buzzed on adrenaline this week- I feel like I drank 20 cokes. I’ve been really productive in every area of my life which usually is not the case with me. Usually I have to pick a category and only be productive in that one thing while everything else goes down the toilet. It’s like a one track mind on steroids. My brother and I share this trait. After hours of my life wasted on whining to David about why on earth I am like this, I finally quit trying to figure it out and I just accepted it for what it was. My main focus was my photography business and I would get so down when I would think about all the other forsaken arenas of my life. Whenever I would finally take time out to paint my toenails or do something that made me feel feminine I would announce to david in my best 3 year old voice, “I’m like a real girl!”
I don’t know what has changed in the last 3 months, but it’s like I’m a whole new me! You mean I can dedicate myself to my business and have time to shave my legs?? Why, yes! You mean I can do decorating projects around the house and then take a break to cook a meal for my poor husband?? Why, yes! ! It’s all true!! I’m an actual multi-tasker!!! Somehow my brain is now allowing me to shift my focus throughout the day and concentrate on one thing and then switch to the next. I’m really beginning to wonder if aliens took me in my sleep and did something weird to me.
One thing I’ve been mega looking forward to is my entire family coming into town for a few days over the fourth of July. Family is so important to me and having everyone together in one spot- I live for that. I have set that as a goal to get a ton of stuff done in the past few weeks and I think it’s been pretty motivating. We’re finally hanging things that have just been leaning against the wall for months. We are fixing up the guest rooms and getting more organized with our living space. My tendancy is to cram as much as I can in a closet and shove the door shut. Although that seems like the easy solution at the time I think that lifestyle actually induces stress. Especially if you open the closet and things fall out and hit you in the head.
These photos are from Memorial Day weekend when we went to the east coast to visit David’s family. Our little niece was having her 2nd birthday party and I was so excited to be there to do her two year session the day before. These were taken outside the hardware store which happened to be next to the railroad.
