I’m super-boring these days. My life right now is consumed by taking care of my baby, and the free time that I do have is occupied by limited cleaning, running errands, playing the Wii, surfing the web. It’s not that bad, really. It’s just, each day looks like a repeat of the last.
I know that as my son gets older and doesn’t require two to three naps during the day, it’ll be easier to get out and do more. He’ll show more of an interest in playing at the park, going to the zoo, library, or museums. Right now, he doesn’t seem to care about any of those things.
We’re trying to find a church to join in our new part of town. I’m hopeful that doing so will strengthen our faith, introduce us to some new friends, and help us become more involved with the community.
I’m also trying to think of non-baby interests I can recultivate. I’d like to read more, improve my photography skills, and tinker with some recipes.
I’m thankful that being in a rut is my biggest problem right now. We are truly fortunate.
What do you do when you notice you’re in a rut?
