I've gotten back to loving my life since I quit my job. I had more stress than I recognized. I know my husband recognized it! But I told myself I was fine, I was handling it, I'll do for me later ( and never got around to it). Weekends would go by and I would have done NOTHING for myself. Not one thing.
Now when I cook, I take my time. When I fold laundry, I stop to smell the downy freshness. I talk to Grady about whatever is on his mind before bedtime. Fishing after sunset with the boys is completely doable. And most importantly I haven't felt that awful tinge in my belly that I would get when I felt like I had so much to do, not enough time to do it in, wanting only time for myself, knowing I wasn't going to get it.
Here are some ways I've been enjoying life:
Being a Mother
My time with him has been much more enjoyable. We talk a lot. He's finally holding conversations with me and I just adore talking to him. I take him with me everywhere, just because I want him to go.
He likes to practice casting his fishing pole in the backyard. He'll stay out for half an hour casting.
