Stick In The Mud
I've been a total stick in the mud lately. No fun at all. I blame it mostly on dieting. Seriously. Food is one of my true joys in life and feeling guilty every time I eat something I love just really sucks the fun out of it. But besides that I just feel like I've been overwhelmed with everything. Must exercise. Must count calories. Must figure out how to clean the house again. Must keep floors always clean (Kate is minutes away from crawling, I'm sure of it). Must find the bottom, or at least the middle, of Mt. Laundry. Plus preschool makes it so every morning is a rush and I'm constantly saying, "we have to hurry!" Then by the time I'm finished worrying about all that (okay, I'm never finished...) I'm so tired that I get on my kids case every time they get rowdy. They are 3 and 4, they are supposed to get rowdy and have fun! Not be rushed and shushed every two minutes! Poor kids. So my goal for today and coming days is to find some ways to inject fun into our day and my life in general. The first thing I've done is use music! Have you all tried Pandora radio? You should! Just tell it what kind of music your in the mood for and it creates a custom radio station with little to no interruption. It rocks. My latest favorite is Glee radio! Its the best to clean to...So, feel free to give me any suggestions on ideas that are fun, but not stressful or too horribly messy, since the constant mess of my house if part of my stink-in-the-mudness. Thanks!
