8.30 am

Friday, 2 May 2014, 8. 30 am
We're on day three of our new early morning routine & this morning went quite smoothly, so long as Romy's robot was in near sight that is. And vegemite toast, Romy loves vegemite toast! 

Oh, hey!

It's been almost two weeks since I've posted anything & I could tell you its because I've been really busy, but it is mostly because I haven't really been inspired to. So many new changes have been happening offline that I wanted to take a step back & adjust in my own time. I have come to realise that I put a lot of pressure on myself to do as much as I can & I sometimes miss what is important. And the most important thing right now is to simply just be. No to-do lists, no expectations & no obligations. I've just been taking each day as it comes & watching Romy grow bigger & bigger by the second. Some mornings I feel extremely unsettled without a list of things that I need to do, or a daily agenda, but reminding myself that it's okay to just go with whatever happens during the day is where I'm at.

Just before we moved Luke & I talked about all the nesting projects we wanted to do after we were settled, & how I had so many things I wanted to accomplish within a certain amount of time as well as all the other mundane, grown up things that needed to be done. And that was when Luke suggested the most ridiculous thing to me, he suggested I take a break from everything & spend my evenings & Romy's nap times doing nothing. I remember quite clearly laughing at the thought of it because I find it hard to relax & switch off, but after two weeks of solid practice I think I'm getting the hang of it! I'm allowing myself another week or so before I kick back into gear & get going on a couple of things.
