The question is: what to do with it?
Finally, after 2 1/2 years, I have time to...
figure out my new camera and Photoshop.
plant a bigger garden, full of fresh veggies and fruit for my family.
re-do Elijah's room, making it more "teenager-y" and less "school-boy-like".
plan new window treatments for the downstairs.
plan some new landscaping for our backyard.
visit with friends, old and new.
clean my house (aww, do I have to?).
surf Pinterest for new ideas, and have the time to carry them out.
Mixed in with all these big plans of mine, though, are the things I have to do, not just want to do. Work my 24-plus hours a week at the hospital. Take the kids to their various school/sporting events. Volunteer at Isabel's and Gabe's schools. Take care of the house, the groceries, the kids, homework assignments, etc. Make time for Joe. Really, I don't know how I managed to squeeze getting my Bachelor's degree in with all of those things.
I'm excited for this new chapter of my life, having time to do the things I want to do and managing my time to do the things I need to do. The trick is mixing the two things together, I think.
What's on your to-do list this spring?
