It's been an incredibly calm month for us so far. Words cannot express how much I've needed calm these past few weeks. I forget sometimes how hard it is to be pregnant. I've had to cut back so much and allow myself the luxury of uninterrupted rest. Usually I go a little stir crazy when I'm not busy with work, but I've sunk down deep this month, on more than one occasion, into the comfy chair and indulged in novel reading and coffee drinking and just plain spacing out. And yes, it's been amazing.
I think my brain needs more time for spacing out. All this quiet and calm has cleaned up so much of the clutter that typically fills my thought life every day. I find myself more creative, more focused, and craving even more blissful rest.
They should really do more research on the benefits of spacing out, don't you think?? :)
Cutting out screen time has helped with the spacing out thing, too.
Seth's been home most nights, which is rare, but it's freed me up to have a few evenings a week to do things I enjoy- mostly work on my portfolio (see previous post) and bake and cook. And of course, because of this nasty weather, we've been forced to stay inside and not fill our evenings with plans.
It does get boring sometimes, I'll admit. But what mother doesn't need more boring in her life? Boring is my new best friend. At least for now. :)
