Three Things Thursday ( a day late)
Three Things Thursday
Ok...I'm a day behind on this one :)
1. I am currently seeking a "hobby". I keep getting told 'to help with stress to find something I enjoy doing'. Well the trouble with this, I used to LOVE reading. Now I just can't seem to read that much. I am currently trying jogging, crocheting, quilting, and other crafting. I am hoping that I can find something to concentrate on, but right now I am flipping between activities. I am trying not to "stress" about not really knowing what I enjoy anymore. My only other hobby currently is watching the History Channel.
2. I really love to cook. I am a Type A personality though, so I have a hard time teaching the kids. With all my food allergies, I like being in control, so hopefully there won't be any type of cross-contamination. I am trying harder though to control my need for "control" and let Lydia have more freedom. I get very nervous about them getting hurt. They try and skip steps or just basically forget what they need to be doing. That scares me. That being said, I am working very hard on the Type A control and allowing the kids to really help as much as I can. My one rule, if it's a brand new recipe for something I am limited on supplies for, I do it by myself once and then they can try it. Allergen-friendly ingredients are not cheap, so I sometimes have to be careful.
3. I was actually working on earning my Educational History Major - Middle school level when Brayden was a baby. I was going to be a Social Studies American History teacher. Yeah....I don't think I could do that now. Would definitely get myself into trouble!!! I still love history and I hope someday my kids can appreciate and love history like I do.
