Not waiting for as many things

So I finally heard from a couple of places I was waiting to hear from, so that's making me less anxious.  I also finally got a good night's sleep, which is probably helping me out as well.

I did not eat on my new eating plan last night at all.  I don't care.  The food was totally worth it.

I think we're going to do something over here at my house for the 4th but I don't know who will be coming.  I don't think it really matters.  We'll have some good food and swim and maybe get sparklers or something like that.

It's raining here so I guess it's probably a good thing that we weren't planning on working on the labyrinth.

I think that I don't have much else going on right now.  I've been doing cross stitch instead of knitting and that's going to have to change because I really need to be knitting.  But I really need to be cross stitching too!  I think that since I'm not tired I'll be able to do more during the day today.

I'm not having the best day.  I'm trying to do my writing in the hopes that I will feel better afterwards but I'm not optimistic.

I did Nicky's at home play therapy session today so I have the recording for it for the Play Lady to see at our appointment.  He had some interesting things he did, like he said the king was using the door to the castle as a catapult and threw all this food into the castle, and then ate it all and threw up into the dump truck.  Then the garbage truck came and took it all away.

We started laying down the rope for my mom's labyrinth, so that felt like an accomplishment.  We used up the first 50 feet of rope and I'm worried there isn't enough left but I hope there is.

I'm not really overflowing with things to say so I guess this is going to be short.

My poor blog!

I feel like I have abandoned my blogs!  I've been writing, but I guess not on here or anywhere related to any of my various stand-alone blogs.

I'm still working on turning my house into a variation of a creepy Victorian museum (or as close as I can get in a 1950's boxy style home that used to be a ranch but had a second floor added at some point).

I'm currently TTC baby #4 and hoping that turns out but it's up in the air and it's hard for me to be stoic about that...but I'm trying!  I'm currently eating following the ketogenic plan.

This year's projects include finishing a test knit (which I want to be finished with by the middle of August), a cross stitched tree skirt (needs to be finished sometime in December, preferably at the beginning), and I really want to get the Kipper things all done because at this point Max is really too old for them but I want them done anyway.  I'm also going to be writing another novel and I plan to revise one of the close-to-finished ones and have it published this year.  And I have an illustration project that I'm working on but I'm not sharing details on that.

I have a few mindfulness projects in mind as well, and would ideally like to turn them into courses but I suck at marketing and it's hard for me to figure out how to get those things out there into the world, so I don't know.  But I'm going to work on it because I think that they have potential.

Daily life continues to be a time-suck, as I imagine it is for everyone.  I have my littlest in a drop-in nursery for a few hours a week, and I think that when school starts again that will be fantastic for my writing and creating of all kinds.  As it stands, I spend most of my time knitting because I can do that with distractions, which are constant.

I don't want to make it sound like daily life is a time-suck in a negative way, as I do get a lot of pleasure out of being with my kids and just being.  I just know that I have more to offer and I'd like to have time to get that going on.
