I like the idea that I am more than the mother of 4 awesome kids. I am God's creation. He made me for a purpose, part of that purpose of course is to be a mother. I look forward to looking inward and discovering the other parts of me.
I am really enjoying scrapbooking as it is allowing me to be creative, something I have never really thought about myself. Something I have always wanted to be. I want to try other creative outlets as well, hmmm.... painting? sculpture? the possibilities are endless. There is a whole, huge world out there that I have been too afraid to discover. I have always been a perfectionist and therefore afraid to try new things for fear of failing or just looking stupid. That seems stupid, doesn't it?
Oh, I am so excited! I just booked a flight to Vancouver to see one of my best girlfriends! I will so need the break, dh is just about to leave again for two weeks of work, yuck. Shay and I will shop, shop, shop, and of course talk til we are blue in the face, I can't wait. I think we could both use the girly time, with 4 kids a piece and hubby's that work very hard, we need all the breaks we can get.
I should get back to my kids and teaching, I also need to clean up my house! Grandma is coming to watch the kids so that dh and I can get out for a few minutes, alone. I better go fire up my vacuum.
