This weekend, my stepdaughters and I painted canvases to put in their room as decoration. They are REALLY talented - here they are -
Neely's painting (she's 13)
my drawing, inspired my Zanti Power Yoga - see the pics in the back:)
Jesse, she's 11
It was so fun to do, we have completed some stuff to help decorate their room, and even though we were doing things and away from home, I feel rested.
We also did some holiday decorating crafts -
inspired by some Pinterest finds
I've found that doing things with them, and not having a slammed schedule, makes me happier, it makes me feel more rested, it makes me worry less, etc.
The down side of that is that I've been missing out on some things such as regular yoga classes (I've resorted to a regular at home morning practice), running - especially in a group, things like that. But, you know, I just can only do what I can do at this point. It won't be like this forever, and we'll see how it evolves in the future. But for now, I feel grateful to have the opportunity to make these memories.
