Life with two small children is full of motion. It’s exhausting and I look forward to the weekends— Drex absorbs some of the energy in the house. This morning, in an attempt to relax, I sat in my desk chair and propped my feet up on the sofa.
That way, I could also get a good look at the disorder in the living room. Yes, there is a dining table in front of the fireplace. Yes, it’s loaded with a bunch of crap. Yes, the mantle is stacked with more crap. And don’t even ask about the floor. There is a lot of crap everywhere. While I was wearily and sardonically taking it all in, Sonya turned my legs into her personal jungle gym and slide.
Overall, though, the weekend was rejuvenating. On Saturday, we had brunch with friends and met a precious seven-day old named William. Then we went to an iced cider festival in Rougemont, about an hour’s drive east of Montreal. It was our first trip as members of Communato, an urban auto-share program. We’re really excited about the other possibilities that access to a car will give us!
Today, I taught quilting at Emeline & Annabelle again. After next Sunday, I’m going to teach special workshops once a month. I look forward to being in the creative space, and don’t want to give up the chance to dress up, interact with wonderful people, and get paid with cash money, but now that I’m a legit writer, I’ve got to start seriously leveraging weekends for drafting my novel.
Boy, have I got ideas! Now if only people would stop climbing on me.
