I've given up sleeping. It's for the birds. My weight loss project/blog- Mama's Got A Big Belly is taking off! ((You should "follow" if you don't already!)) Between working out sponsorships, networking, editing, planning posts-- it's really taking shape! --And taking up time!
So has *working out* and getting out with the family! Every.single.day I'm jogging, or doing yoga, or hiking. SOMETHING! I get the kids out of the house as much as I can.
I can't stay out of the kitchen. My mind has all of these ideas for recipes... I see something and I find myself thinking 'How can I make this HEALTHIER and still taste good?'
Healthy living is a lifestyle. I want to be around to see my GREAT Grand kids. (According to Eva-- she is never going to have kids... so, I guess that one is up to Abram!)
Plus Abram is almost exclusively breast fed. I don't have any breast milk saved up right now either... Which, is somewhat problematic... I should probably find time to pump because Garrett and I are doing something without the kids for a few hours this weekend for his birthday ((it's a surprise... so you can't know yet-- Garrett reads my blogs!)) So, I'm feeding him, snuggling him, making him giggle, bathing him, changing him-- you name it.
Speaking of Abram-- he had his 2 month check up. He's gained almost 6 pounds since birth! That means he's almost 15 pounds. He also had 3 shots today. Took 'em like a champ! Didn't even cry until the very last shot... I think it was mostly a, 'Hey! What the hell? I've had enough of this crap!' type of cry.
((ARE YOU SENSING THE ADHD BRAINWAVES I HAVE RIGHT NOW! GO! GO! GO!))
And then... a few days ago I was in the shower and HOLY #%@#%T%&*(@&%!!! It hits me. *THE* IDEA. Writers- you know what I'm talking about. THE WIP hit me. Like a train.
I've had ideas come to me... but, this one is just different. Much different. I haven't been able to return to my other large project since birthing Abram... and I'm assuming that my brain needed time to energize me so I could get this idea!
Now I'm writing constantly. Whether scribbles in my notebook, on napkins, recording (thanks Sarah) or repeating something to myself so I don't forget it.. WIP WIP WIP. My mind is working out this story... the characters... their world.
Like I said... sleep is for the birds. Garrett and I are serious believers in **ONE THING** -- you get from the universe what you put into ii--
And I can say-- I'm giving it my all.
