Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

This year and this blog has been consumed with the Baby Lotus Bud and with Iron Craft. I think about posting other things, but I can't seem to find the time. I'm two months behind on letters to the Lotus Bud. Life with her is intense now that she's mobile. It's like a tornado hits this home twice a day.

What did I ever do before she arrived? Huh?

I blogged, I crafted, I cooked, I wrote, I took photos.

Honestly - I want some of that life back! I know I still blog, craft, cook, write and take photos. But it never seems to exactly what I want to do. Just being honest here.

I feel like I've become this boring, very predictable nearly 40-year old crazy lady.

I know I keep harping on the 40 year old thing, but dang-it! I'm turning 40! I thought I would be way more fun and interesting than this!


  1. You are a lovely, vital woman...have no fears of that. Lots of living and loving and excitement ahead of you still. *smiles*

    What you are feeling is normal for every Mommy. We all feel this, no matter how old we are. It is a normal part of the first few years. When she goes to school, you'll feel a bit blue about the times you spent together, but then you'll rediscover so many of the things you are saying you don't have enough time for now.

    You'll get there...It is not easy, but I nevertheless counsel patience with yourself. Hugs!

  2. You know 40 is just a number & you totally can't let it get you. Being a stay at home mom can be tough on your ego too, I've heard similar things lately from Susi
