I’m in flight right now, glass of cab on the table, Mac open (he is actually a bit rusty since I have been neglecting him for so long). There’s a stranger to my right that I have NO interest in speaking too. More exciting is that my phone is off, my manager, agent, publicist, and producers cannot reach me, no kids are calling me, and I have no option to be distracted. If you read my blogs earlier in the year, you know that I was most excited about the possibility of sleeping during any down time I could manage. Times are changing because I am most excited now about the opportunity to write for hours. Time is something that I have had very little of these days, and I really miss writing, reflecting, thinking about what I do and why I do it! My blogs are that place for me. So here goes a whole lot of mushy gushy stuff!!!
What I’ve learned lately:
I love sleeping with my kids because I blinked my eyes and Neriah turned 10. Now she hardly wants to hang anymore.
I love my relationship, even know it’s long distance these days, it completes me.
I have finally realized that romantic love can be selfless too. It only took me 20 years to figure that lesson out! Not bad…
My son has the cutest lips I’ve ever kissed, next to his sisters’. Actually, David’s aren’t bad, but Shaya wins!
I can’t function on 6 hours of sleep anymore, black out drapes have changed my life! Going to bed early helps too.
My oldest daughter is capable of making her own breakfast. I discovered that when a TV crew was shooting an at-home piece and much to my surprise, she knocked it out for the whole family. I should invite them in more often.
Hair and make-up make a HUGE difference. Realized that when my daughter’s classmate’s mom didn’t realize I was the one hosting DWTS. Maybe I should lose the bun and sweats at drop off.
Putting a couch in a spot where you actually want to have conversations works. We call it the catch-up couch now in my family. Best purchase during my redesign.
My kids know how to set the table. It’s amazing what a $2 a week allowance will do.
I can count on my friends. I’ve needed them lately, and they’ve more than shown up.
My e-mails are still there in the am after shutting down early at night.
Leaving my voice mailbox full on my phone really works!!! Because most callers don’t really need me!!! Hell of a lot less returning calls.
You usually can get what you want if you ask for it. “ A closed mouth never gets fed.”
Compassion is key when dealing with a TWEEN!!!!
Some people don’t know how to ask for help, but giving it to them is huge!!
Dreams can never come true if you forget to make wishes. Check out my Bucket List.
Love letters are under rated. Certain things need to be said, heard and saved…
Being in love is the greatest most intoxicating, fulfilling feeling I know.
I miss dancing…
Taking 15 minutes to breathe is keeping me sane.
Checking in keeps me connected, and being connected keeps me real.
Nothing is better than watching my son eat chocolate cake. Better than enjoying it myself!!!
Thanks for listening and giving me this platform to write, share, and be with my own thoughts.
