|Lily drew my portrait. Notice the "blah-ness" of my expression?|
My upcoming birthday has made me reflect on this past year and boy, I'm not liking what I remember. I feel like my body, brain, and emotions have all betrayed me. I don't want to go into specifics, because who wants to come to my pity party? No one, not even me! I know aging is something we all have to deal with, so I am looking for ways to cope. I'm trying to eat better. I'm trying to exercise regularly. I'd like to be sleeping better (dang James, still nursing at night!). I'm trying to feed my soul with the scriptures. I want to learn to do new things (doll-making and wood-working and home-schooling and gardening and knitting and this secret handshake) to get my brain working again. Of course, trying to learn all of those things at once will surely send me spiraling into a never ending black-hole of "I can't do anything right", so I am trying to prioritize.
Sidenote: I love to prioritize and make lists. More than I actually like to *do* things. Maybe I should work on that too.
