Have you ever been in a funk? I think that I am in a funk at this very moment. I want to be in school, and that won't work with our lives right now. The loss of my last church calling has made me feel lazy. I don't have a baby that NEEDS me. My kids are big, and they don't want to be held and rocked as much as they used to. They don't need their bottoms wiped anymore, you know? I need to figure out a way to pull myself out this valley, and get back on a peak. I know that I am not the first stay at home mom who's felt this way. I find so much joy in my children, but I'm hungy for more joy. Joy found in creating something beautiful, in making something delicious, in finding more spiritual moments in my life. I feel as though I've drifted aimlessly through the entire summer, and let my brain turn to mush. Time for some stimulation!
