OK, my biggest fear of becoming a mother (as of today) is becoming the walking dead.
I get on rampages. The past two days I’ve been backing up all of my photos and videos on an external hard drive so that my computer will run faster and so that I have all the files organized. I’ve been taking so many photos and editing photos so I need a good organization system.
I run loads of laundry, clean, cook and grocery shop in structured “breaks” I construct so that I don’t go into a non-showering, cheese and cracker eating couch potato when I get on these streaks.
Yesterday, I even went to work on it at a cafe so I could corner an amount of time to work on it and then walk away for a while. When I was working full-time, I would totally stay up late at night working on little projects from photo book gifts to arts and crafts.
I hear you’re supposed to nap when the baby naps or else you’ll never get any sleep. Well, I know I will be burning to do some little project the second those baby eyes close.
I’m most happy when I have an obsession. Surely that will be the baby but I know that I’ll need more! I’m going to need my best discipline skills so that I stay fresh! I hear you just get better at doing things with no sleep. I once fell asleep standing up in my Navy days. That’s another story. I wasn’t even breastfeeding though. Yikes!
What keeps you up late at night????
(Here’s a couple of pics of us “nest-partying” on Memorial Day. We finally got up on our rooftop! There’s a hot tub up there too but we’ve never used it!)
