Some moms have told me that "pregnancy brain" never really goes away. So is it the cause of me not being able to make a decision about anything? Like even simple decisions? And then just a moment ago I was like, "Oh, this is the time of year we are usually on vacation." (as I sat there with this day-dreaming look in my eye). And then I was like WAIT A MINUTE! This is MAY, not September. Oh dear! I was confusing Memorial Day with Labor Day. This is not good! And then sometimes I'll be thinking so deeply about something that I'll forget where I am...like not really, but I'll have to bring myself back to reality. It's so weird! Haha! Ok, am I freaking some of you out now? Please tell me this is normal after having children! Ha!
And I apologize if I've already posted this page, as you can see, my memory isn't completely back to normal. Whatever normal is...
A recent decision that was hard for me to make has been to take a break from design. I've basically already been taking a break. My time is precious. Very precious. I only have so many hours in a day to have time to think and be creative. I have decided I want to devote that time to scrapbooking and other creative endeavors. She takes two naps a day now. My time during her first nap is completely devoted to exercise, showering, putting on make-up (because I don't leave the house without it!), and catching up on blog stuff (if that!). Second nap is like my breather, a time to relax a bit, but it's full of all sorts of stuff, like cleaning, organizing, prepping for dinner, scrapbooking, reading, or sitting on the deck and being a big ole lazy bum on those beautiful sunshine days. Sorry, I didn't mean to go into great detail about what I do during naptime. Ha!
Anyway, so taking a break from design (or maybe stopping for forever--who knows!) has been a hard decision for me to come to. At first I wanted to please others. When I mentioned my thoughts about stopping to Quent, he was surprised. Then I wanted to backtrack. But I realized that I needed to make this decision for myself, and not for anyone else. I don't want to be a people-pleaser in that regard. It took me weeks to decide. And now I'm 98% good with my decision. The 2% is still that longing to design and fear that I won't get back into it...but I'm ok with that too.
So I'm not sure when, but I will be having a big retirement sale at MScraps. I will let you know when!
Have a happy day!
