I'd like to spend a couple minutes to write about a special place in our home. This is my regu-venation corner. It takes up a decent amount in our bedroom, but is very much needed! The shelves are full of books that I find interesting and helpful. Special items, like the tea cup found at a garage sale, a picture of hubby and I when we were first dating, a Bible, the "highland coo" that was Hubby's the sheepskin we brought back from Scotland, the quilt my great-grandmother made (and that was the wedding quilt for my grandparents). Everything is there for a purpose and a reason: to help me relax.

I have been struggling with the fact that I do not have 2 minutes in the entire day without children. Magoo no longer naps, Sprout likes to be held, Princess demands her fair share of attention. It is a blessing and a joy, but lately I have been seriously craving some time alone. To sew, knit, read, sip a cuppa, phone a friend, shop, to listen to the quiet and think! So the last evening I spent a couple hours curled up in the chair and read. It did me a world of good!

Do you have a special little corner in your home? do share!

I know the feeling well, and it's easier said than done, but cherish each snuggle that they require of you. It goes by so quickly, and soon enough you'll have LOTS of alone time. In the meantime, know that you aren't alone...I think most mommies struggle with this. Including me.

Yes, it's called my bedroom!

I need a special corner. Right now it's between the pages of my special journal. By the way, love the kid's aliases :)
