I tell you, friends, lately my mind is SO FULL. It only gets full when there is a lot going on that isn’t resolved or finished. So I thought I would give you a little peek inside my head and share what is happening in there. Not all of it, of course, but some of the major ones.
*I am sharing photos of Falafel to illustrate my point. This girl lost four front teeth last OCTOBER. They are just growing in.
As I was saying, lots going on in there. Especially learning new things. I am currently taking an online workshop for digitizing patterns! You CAN apparently teach an old dog new tricks, OR a 42 year old mom new skills. Whichever. There is so much to it. I am slightly overwhelmed by it all. I have made up my mind to give it a whirl and start my own pattern line. BTW: Feel free to let me know if there is anything you would like me to design. I have some ideas that I will start with, but I always love hearing your ideas too!
The other thing I am learning is how to use my new sewing machine. It is amazing and also overwhelming at times. It is relearning a lot of what I knew how to do, in a different way. I am taking it slowly, stitch by stitch. I didn’t realize how much of my sewing was done by muscle memory. I wouldn’t have to look at my machine, I just did it, lighting quick. Second nature. Now I have to look. I have even embroidered for the first time ever! Lots to learn.
END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR IS ALMOST HERE. That takes up an entire section of my brain, really. There is planning how to honor all those hard working teachers and staff, end of the year activities to help with, and Summer to plan. Yup. That’s a lot.
For some reason, this time of year is when we are all due for one kind of appointment/check-up or another, and I find myself on the phone talking to people to make appointments…which takes up a lot of space in there.
Having a garage sale this weekend, so there’s that. My lovely friend comes over and we try and sell all the stuff that has been accumulating in our respective households over the past year. At least after this weekend, that one will be out of my head. There’s limited space in there, afterall!
And the cherry on top is, I have been dealing with chronic pain in my foot for months now. That doesn’t really take any brain power, but it sure does distract me.
All these things feel as slow as growing teeth right now. I know they all will be replaced with all new things after I have mastered/conquered/checked them off my list. Honestly, I think orthodontia for child #2 is going to be on top of the new list!
What is your brain filled with lately?
