What About Mom?

4 Feb

I love to learn.

I don’t always have the time to do it.

One day, my oldest daughter told me she wanted to learn how to do everything in the world, and as silly as that sounds, I understood it. I have so many interests, that sometimes it’s overwhelming. So much to do, so little time.

Anyway, I wanted to share the things I’m learning/reading now. I learn a lot when working with the kids. More than I ever expected. But these are things I’m doing on my own.

How to Think and Argue
Intro to Philosophy
Intro to Digital Sound Design
Guitar
Reading: The Well-Trained Mind, The Iliad/The Odyssey

How do I fit that in when I homeschool full-time, work at home and have a toddler? It’s hard. I have to MAKE time. And unfortunately, things that a lot of parents can get through quickly, take me quite a bit longer. But, it’s okay.

Do you do any self-education? If so, what things are you learning or reading?

Will Make Up a Title Later.

I’m a procrastinator. I thought I was the worst procrastinator in the world. Now I know better. But, that does not remove the fact that I am a procrastinator.

Many times in our lives we will put off the hard things, the mundane things. Until a later time. Until there is no time left.

I have a new job now.

My body has the tough job of creating life. This is not a job that allows a break. I can’t call off. I have no control over how and when things are done. I am along for this ride. Men, do you hear this? It’s a job. 24/7.

I have had mild symptoms. Tons of time in the bathroom, tighter fitting bras, mild twinges in the uteral (if it’s not a word, it should be) area. But today…today, I woke up and there was a monster within me. THE HUNGER MONSTER. Wow.

Have you ever gone a while without eating? Maybe even all day? You get hunger pangs. Your stomach kinda makes all these weird begging noises. Maybe even you just FEEL empty? Yea. THAT, dear Internet, doesn’t compare. I felt like there was a black hole in my stomach. I was being sucked into it. Soon I’d disappear and the kids would have to say, “Oh our mother? We have no mother. Her stomach ate her.”

That feeling is not normal. Not good. Then I remembered, my body is working all day and all night. She is deserving of a meal as often as she’d like. The thing is, there is no:

  • Oh, I’m a little hungry.
  • Okay, now I’m pretty hungry.
  • Yea, I’m kinda starving now, haha.

Total time passed = 4-5 hours

This is not funny, Internet. There is no HAHA. This is not a game.

This is the order of a pregnant woman’s hunger thoughts:

  • Woooooooo, I am STARVING.
  • MAY DAY, MAY DAY, I need food NOW!!!! OH EM GEE!
  • Ughhh, I didn’t get food in time, now I’m feeling pukey.

Total time passed = 30 minutes

Yep. Not eating can make you feel pukey. In my case it WILL make me feel pukey.When you get hungry, you must eat.

So, all this is to say, I am currently a slave to my own body.

She says, “Eat!”, I must say, “eat what?”

She says, “Sleep!”, I must say, “ZZzzzz.”

She says, “Puke!” Well, you get my drift.
