Stream of Consciousness

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

I pulled up blogger this morning and I have this overwhelming desire to write. Of course there's just one problem with this opportunity, I'm not sure what I want to say.

I feel like it's been awhile since I wrote something important, and by important, I mean important to me. Something that's burdened me or that I've needed to describe so that it can be released from my mind to be interpreted by time.

So, I'll settle for the thoughts that are mulling around.

I survived this weekend, I think. I had a wedding on Saturday as well as Sunday. Due to this I didn't really feel like I had a three day weekend, but rather a regular weekend in which I only had Sunday off but worked twice as hard. It's such a blessing though. These weddings have long been anticipated and I'm growing by leaps and bounds with each one. This was my sneak board from Sunday's wedding:

This coming week will be interesting, as it's all ready Tuesday, and I have both Thursday and Friday off. Friday I again have a wedding for a former co-worker and then on Saturday I'm going down to Marshall for my alumni game. I really wanted to be in shape for the game . . . but I'll be coming in like most alumni do and will suck wind to show a bit of face. I really hope it will be fun!

I can't seem to keep up with email, either personal or business. Some are understanding, others not so much. I hate disappointing people, especially if they read my personal blog. It actually drives me crazy, but I'm trying to let it go. I am not superwoman, that has been abundantly made clear to me this year. Running a business is much like parenting in which you always think that you'll do something different, until you're in that situation you just never know.

My son is ridiculously cute and big. I keep looking at 18-24 month clothing thinking that it won't fit him . . . and then I regret not getting it on him sooner because it's all ready shrinking on him! Yesterday morning we woke up leisurely around 8:30 and Isaac didn't want to stop cuddling with me. It's like he was acknowledging my feelings that I haven't been around enough. Super cute and sad at the same time, but I totally soaked it up.

And sadly, that might be the extent of the thoughts bouncing around today.

I feel that way about the phone. I'm constantly letting people down by forgetting to call back. I feel bad. We all need friends, but I'm too busy to just "chat." Keep at it Mama!

I can be horrible at following up as well. We all do the best we can. You are one busy lady. I am sure people understand, and if they don't, well then, they are just going to have to!

All I can I don't know how you do it! You work full-time during the week, fill most of your weekends with photography related events, and then dote on your beautiful son with whatever remaining moments you have left. You're amazing, and only need to sleep, eat, and spend time with your family. I know it's a lot easier said than done, but just keep telling yourself you are doing the best you can, and certainly a lot more than most! So feel good about success and know that eventually things will get easier :)

One day at a time ... that's all you can do. Try your hardest and keep going. And don't be so hard on yourself, because seriously girl, you are amazing with everything going on.

I agree with Sarah Louise...I have NO clue how you do it all!

Ditto everyone else on the amazing thing. It's true. :D I don't associate with un-amazing people.

Leah, your photos are stunning! So crisp and clear. If you get some free time ever, would you consider doing a photography tips post?

Maybe include your tips and favorite lenses? Just a thought!
