I feel stuck.
Stuck in a life of reruns...... day after day after day......... it's all the same.
Get up, wake kids up, eat a breakfast or two, take the kids to school, walk by pile of laundry, walk by piles of paper on my dining room table, hear our damn dogs barking at what the heck ever is moving outside which causes me to (panic) get up and look to see who might be "dropping by" to see my crappy mess house, listening to Spongebob-Dora-Diego-Backyardigans-Yo-Flippin-Gabba-Gabba, making Amelia Claire lunch, eating a lunch or two for myself, staring at my pile of sewing that is overdue to be sent to England, needing a shower but dreading the cold air that hits afterward, wishing like Hell I could grab a nap but can't since there is sooo much for me to do, As the World Turns at 2:00, time to pick Kavin up, then supper, Darren gets home, eat, pick Cole up from Baseball practice.......... put Amelia to bed and saying goodnight to Darren who has to go to bed at 9:00 so that he will be able to start his rerun day as well at 5am.
Not to mention I am at the point in my pregnancy that makes me look "not pregnant" but just fat.
Throw me a beanie and a pair of suspenders and call me Rerun.
So, I was thinking. I need to get out of this funk...... quickly. Unfortunately the only way I think I can get myself out of this hole is to start working at each "pile"........ just tackle one at a time until I find the light. I need the light so badly.
Here's the plan Stan...... Tackle the things that keep you awake at night!
*Pick up house. Take a lousy hour to get it all picked up and looking pleasant. Don't worry about the corners or baseboards.... just pick up the crap......... clear up the crap........... THROW AWAY THE CRAP!
*Clean out the car. Darren is car shopping this afternoon & might be taking the "Ozone Depleter" away tomorrow. Oh, God......... I need boxes. Lots of big empty boxes for this job!
*Clear off the damn dining room table. For all that is good and Holy....... clear the crap off of it. Good Lord Judi your family eats on the couch and coffee table..... SHAME, SHAME, SHAME!
*Make something......... ANYTHING! Bake some cookies or a cake....... you know it makes you happy! (And a bit fatter.... not pregnanter)
*And..... the one true thing that keeps you up at night.......... finish your England order. You're almost done..... work on it tonight till your fingers fall off! You'll feel sooo much better..... you know you will!
Well, that's my list. I wish it included:
*Get nails done
*Get Liposuction and/or tummy tuck
*Get facial, improve the skin!
*Go shopping for something that makes you excited
*Lay out in the sun at the beach.... must make sign, "Not a whale, do not roll"
*Blog about something you've made!
My hope is to get at least two things on my list completed today. Maybe tomorrow will be a fresh start without any reruns!
How do you get yourselves motivated?
