putting friends on hold
I was a little bored the other day and remembered that once upon a time I had a youtube channel in which I uploaded silly videos. Believe me, there was nothing life-chaning in my feed, just random videos of my friends and me doing stupid stuff. Looking through the videos made me realize how much life has changed. I rarely go out these days or even see my friends. My priorities lately are my kids. It's crazy how much time they take up from your life. I'm not complaining, I love these munchkins. I love spending time with them and my husband. And I also enjoy my alone and rest time. Liam and Isabel suck the energy out of me like you wouldn't believe and I need time to just enjoy the quiet.
That's not to say I don't miss my friends or the carefree life of being childless. I would love to spend more time just being with the people I spent so much time with in my teenage and college years. Just this past weekend I was able to spend a few hours with some girls at my friend's baby shower just laughing and having fun. It was great! But time is precious these days and I don't always have the time to devote to these ladies (and gentlemen) as I did when I was younger. I'm sure they understand as many of them have spouses and children of their own. We just happen to be in a stage of life where we're running around to and from work, changing diapers, cooking meals, and falling into our beds at 10PM as if it were 4 in the morning.
Just wanted to give a shout out to my lovely friends and remind them that I love and care for them. Some day we won't be so sleep-deprived and we can party it up again, just be patient and don't forget about me. :-)
