Confession Tuesday

Confession #1. I really really want to be a stay-at-home mom. Yes, I know that defies logic seeing as how my child is now going to be having her own child. Maybe it is because I just turned 40 and I’m suffering a mid-life crisis, but if I’m really good, can’t I just stay at home and be a grandma? And study hard for school? And create art while the perfect grandchild sleeps? And cook nutritious meals for the family? And sometimes take the doggies for a walk? And occasionally check in during the day on my in-laws? I think that sounds like a good role. One that I could heartily embrace. Unfortunately, I do not think it is in the cards for me now. Bah!

Confession #2. I am a joiner. I get excited and I sign up for things. Later, when I have my wits about me, I wonder if I took on too much by whatever it is that I signed up for, but I don’t really care. That is the second part of confession number 2. I love it. I love being energized by new ideas or creative projects. I can’t help myself.

Confession #3. I enrolled in Shimelle’s Blogging for Scrapbookers class. I was entranced by the description of the class, and I realized that I do need to start recording more memories (on a regular basis). I’d like to learn a few things, and maybe end up feeling like my blog could be a productive place.

Confession #4. I love my husband.

Confession #5. I don’t think I let him know that enough. I need to work on that now and in the future.

Confession #6. I love thinking that maybe I can tie all of the things above into one giant opportunity. Hmmmm. We’ll have to see about that.

More later.

I think you would fill the role of stay at home mom wonderfully! It is a lovely dream. Maybe someday it will come true.
