I long for a simpler life

There is so many days that I wish that I lived on a grass hill somewhere with acres of fields around me and no houses close by. I wish I had a home that had a wrap around porch so me and my Austin and our babies could sit out and drink our lemonade with the breeze blowing on us and hear nothing but the sound of our babies giggling. I often find myself daydreaming of this....


I am so sick of living a life of running around like a crazy. I am so busy with life and trying to get my to do list accomplished and keep everyone happy at work that I feel like life is passing me right up. I go from one week to the next and think....where did that week just go, TIME FLIES! And I don't like it. I feel like the one person I want to spend my WHOLE day with, is the one person I see the least in my day. I miss Austin!

I LONG for a simpler life!!!

Why are we all so afraid to be idle. We fill up our days from morning to night and never sit down to just enjoy being alive and well. My goal when this baby decides to grace us with its presence is to calm down and not over work myself. I want to have days where I do nothing but hold my baby and watch it grow. There is moments that you don't ever get to redo...so my promise to you my sweet baby, is to always enjoy you and not take a single second for granted!!!!!

I hear ya. I never get to see my husband either. I would like someone to explain to me how that works. I get sick of seeing my coworkers... I don't really even LIKE them! ;)

I think about this all the time! Sadly, I don't think my life will slow down until I can work part-time (ya right!) or can be a stay-at-home mom (and I'm sure that's now really "slowing down")!

You go girl, you so deserve that life and can have it to. My friends are such busy bodies they go go go go and there kids are tired all the time and they are tired all the time. We have a great balance when we go one day we usually hang out at home the next. In the summer time I literally set up carsons pools and we play in the yard and do yard work all day and jump on the tramp. Soooo fun.....

HHHMMMM....sounds to me like you and Austin should be living somewhere that starts with a big "G". The whole time you where describing it I was laughing because you always say you are such a "city" girl. But I loved hearing that maybe this baby will give you a different perspective and you will live closer (hint hint) LOL no but really it is SOOOO true I want to just sit back and soak it up some days, and lucky for me if I can get over my OCD tendencies and let it all go.....there are days that I do, that's the beautiful thing about being home with my kids. I love it
