Image by lapideo via FlickrI have so many projects going on that I hardly have time to think. That is good, because being so busy means I cannot think to all the things that depress or sadden me. And because I now you are curious about my projects, I'll tell you.
First of all, I try to put together a book of poems, songs and finger-plays in Romanian, for Maya. There is a mommy forum in Romanian where some great mothers had posted their children's favourite poems, songs or stories. There are some on the net, also. I copied a lot of them and now I am in the process of editing the text and adding clip art and pictures. I really want to make it pretty and then be able to read it with my daughter. We don't have many story books in Romanian here and I don't want Maya to forget her mother tongue, so I try to do my best with what I have. This is the most urgent project as I want to finish it as soon as possible.
My husband bought me a laminator and now I want to prepare Maya some worksheets and board games, as I can laminate now everything and this way I don't have to print the same page all over again.
Then, as you know, I am writing a novel...I try to write every night, no matter how tired I am. I know how easy it is to find excuses, so...I am not doing it...I also have to do a lot of research for my book, so I am reading everything I can put my hands on.
Between all this I have to mind Maya, to teach her, play with her...we pretty much do everything together because she likes to "help"...And you know about the "help" of 4 year olds....but I have to encourage her, so I endure everything for her sake...I am not complaining! As long as she's healthy, I am happy...
Not to forget I am a SAHM, so I am doing all the housework by my myself, although here I cheat a lot...well, you win some, you lose some... I am not a big fan of cleaning, cooking and stuff, so I find lots of excuses to postpone them.
But for a moment I want to forget about all this craziness, because today it happened something amazing.It rained! Well, you can laugh as much as you want, but believe me, for us Israelis, rain is manna from Heaven. It doesn't usually rain during this month, the raining season being over, so a true, real rain was a treat. As I went out before it started and I didn't have an umbrella, I enjoyed every cold, wet drop that slithered along the back of my neck. I was soaked when I arrived home, but the feeling was "I am singign in the rain" one...
Thank you God, for these precious moments and for the special people in my life!
