Busy.

May 7, 2014

I know you’re supposed to stop glorifying busy.  I know that. 
But right now, I feel like I’m too busy and it’s making me super tired/crazy and I can’t figure out to get ahead of things. So I’m going to keep complaining about it until I can figure out a flow for our new schedule.  Hey man, no one is twisting your arm to read this blog. 🙂

I haven’t posted recently because I haven’t had a chance to sit and recap current events.  Last weekend was actually a weekend at home…kinda.  Bennett was hired to photograph The Linsly School’s 200th Anniversary Gala, and with that came me being his second shooter and it took up most of our Saturday.

The Gala was HUGE.  Like 600+ people huge.  So Bennett thought it best to hire on a second husband/wife team of photographers to help cover some ground.  The event was great, we had a ton of fun seeing everyone and meeting new people and Jimmy and Anna were a delight to work with.

We slept in a little on Sunday morning but were back “meeting people in the alley” in the afternoon.  Sometimes Louis is all about being around all of those people and watching his Daddy take pictures.  This round was a no-go and he wanted to go play.  Luckily, there is a playground semi-close to the alleyway and Lou and I strolled down there to get some playtime in.

He, of course, was wearing a cape and giant ring on his hand pretending to be a Power Ranger.  So the minute we got there, kids flocked to him and suddenly the entire group of kiddos were playing superheroes with each other.  Oh Lou.

I think the biggest problem I’m having with our new schedule is that I feel like I’m getting less time with Louis.  And it’s killing me a little bit.  If I’m there when he wakes up, Louis asks me if I’m going to spend the day with him and then gets really excited if I say yes.  I know he misses me too and I think that makes it even harder.  We’ve been relying on people to watch him for us more and more…leaving him behind is crushing my soul a little.

Okay.  Maybe it’s crushing me a lot.
I’m taking measures to spend extra time with him.  Because he’s only little once and Louis isn’t going to cuddle with me and watch Doc McStuffins forever.  He’s the reason we push ourselves and yet I feel that he sometimes gets the short end of the stick because of it.

I’m working really hard to adjust our future right now.  Opportunities are coming up with my business that might allow for more flexibility and being able to schedule my own life, rather than work by others’ standards.  I’m keeping all of my fingers and toes crossed that this pans out.  I think it could be such a great thing for all three of us.

Maybe if you think about it, cross your fingers and toes for us too.
