I was reading one of my mom’s back issues of Country Living and found their article on how to turn a mason jar into a soap dispenser. Last year my new year’s resolution was to make a new recipe a week. This year I’d like to try to work on a craft a week… I’ve got a few things in the works but this is one of the (small) projects I’m most excited about.
I’m moving a little slower on my projects than I did pre-baby… It’s hard to get used to the slower pace of getting things done… I’m still not finished with the chairs or painting the bedroom (uggg)… I’m now happy having a to-do list with five things on it and accomplishing three of the things I listed… no more lists that I can crank through anymore so I suppose my projects will have to be smaller like Mason Jar Soap Dispensers.
AJ keeps reminding me that my “job” during maternity leave is not to get projects done around the house… even though we’ve got a million of them, it’s just to spend time with Drewbie (which I’m totally doing, don’t worry!). When AJ comes home at the end of the day there isn’t much I can tell him I’ve done besides feed Drew, change his diaper, cuddle with him and get a few things done while he sleeps. Are there any other new moms who feel guilty for getting so little done while home on maternity leave or am I the only one?
