I am a woman of many hats. My first job is mom. Cupcake is a demanding employer. She has so much energy. She is so smart. She is creative. She is messy. I’m constantly chasing her. I’m constantly trying to engage her. I’m constantly trying to come up with fun projects for her. I’m constantly cleaning up after her. Oh, and don’t forget I have a furbaby that needs me, too!
My second job is wife. Hubby takes care of us. He goes to work every day. He comes home and works on his Master’s Degree. He puts up with my craziness. And he still loves me at the end of the day. I try my hardest to keep the house clean. I try my hardest to put a delicious meal on the table every night. I’m OK with him having his guys weekends, beer brewing nights, and I even let him stay up late and sleep in on the weekends. I’m pretty awesome like that.
Lately I’ve been wearing another hat. Quite often, actually. I’m the new president of my sorority’s alumnae chapter. I’ve been active in my alumnae chapter ever since I graduated from Purdue. When I moved to Ohio I knew no one, but hubby here. I figured the best way to get out and meet some new people was to start with my sorority. After all I already had something in common with these ladies! So here I am, 9 years later (wow, I feel old now) taking over the reigns of the chapter. I attended a conference earlier this summer (remember I made marshmallows for my roommates?) to help start of my term on the right foot. Since then I’ve been trying to learn the ropes and more recently trying to create our newsletter. Um, yeah, it’s just now hit me the responsibility that comes with this office. I’m actually procrastinating working on said newsletter by typing this blog post! I better type quicker so I can get back to it.
I have another hat. One that I don’t wear as often as I’d like. I’m a consultant for Thirty-One Gifts. A new catalog is coming on September 1st, so I’m hoping to get a little busy with it here soon. I like to get out of the house in a non-child related capacity every now and then and this is my way to do it. And I like to feel like I’m helping the family out even if it is just a little bit. I guess I better crank out this blog post, that newsletter, and get planning my new catalog kick off party!
Oh, and I should probably put my crafty hat on and squeeze in a little time to finish Cupcake’s big girl room! All I have left to do is replace the light switch and add some decor on the wall behind the bed. I have a few pieces that I’ve been playing with, but I’m not happy with it. I think baby is sucking the creative juices out of me.
So, yeah, sorry about the rambling, but after having traveled for almost 2 weeks, 3rd trimester exhaustion hitting (probably because I can’t get comfortable sleeping), and “business” I’m feeling the need to put my feet up and watch Breaking Bad (thanks for the new episodes on Instant Watch Netflix!) and talk someone’s ear off. Lucky you!
