A week after my post about Me Time, I am laughing at myself, as I suspected I might be. Over this past week, I have voluntarily given up my scheduled studio time to practice music with my kids, catch up on laundry, and run errands. So, again, I was back to my usual routine of scratching out a few hours wherever I could fit them in. Maybe I prefer it that way…? Some of my kids’ activities are winding down for the season, so I know I will soon have a bit more time. I did manage to spend four hours in the studio on the weekend, laying vocal and piano tracks for the eighth song on the album. Progress has been slow, because sessions have been sporadic, but every time we get in there, it’s productive and I come away feeling satisfied that we’ve accomplished something. So often, I’m in a hurry to be able to check off my goals. I can do that with things like cleaning my kitchen, or tending my gardens, but this music project isn’t in the same category. In between writing, practicing, performing and recording, there’s a whole lot of life to be lived, and I don’t want to miss out on it. God has filled my life with all kinds of blessings, not just music. So if I chose to give up my studio time last week, I won’t be too hard on myself. Next week is full of new possibilities!
