When your kid wakes up at what feels like the crack of dawn, you might as well throw your entire day in the blender, slap a lid on it and hit puree. I know you know what I'm talking about. You find yourself feeding the baby lunch at 10 am, and wondering why your shorter half isn't home yet when you look at the clock and realize it's only 2:00 in the afternoon. It's like entering the twilight zone. I'm fighting the urge to crawl back in my pillow top king size, tuck the covers over my shoulders and hunker down for a good nap.
And I would,
if there weren't so many things to be done around these parts. Things I've already put off for extensive amounts of time, procrastination might as well be the middle name my parents never gave me. Exciting things like scrubbing bathrooms, folding midget sized laundry, replenishing my freezer with baby food, planning meals for the next week, never ending vacuuming (Gus is on my top ten list of "things that currently drive me insane"), on top of putting together a few writing samples and sharpening the old resume. Do you know anyone who needs some freelance copy writing done? I'm available, do a good job and have a fantastic editor, seriously, she's great I'll even leave the swear words out just.for.you. Everyone wins. This is called networking ,in a lazy sort of way.
These things that need my attention are good things, things that give me a sense of accomplishment when I check them off my proverbial list. I'm working on balancing the demands in my life better, on having a legit answer for my spouse when he asks me, "so what'd you do today?".
I'm needing inspiration, motivation, caffienation, you get the idea. The little kids in my neighborhood are running around outside like crazy people. Today is the last day of school. I guess summer really is here after all, it's about time!
Today I give you this...
Have you seen the new Prius commerical? I love it. It brings joy to my life. And it's genius, GENIUS. Toyota, damn you and your marketing ninjas! You've got me, you've got me! Prius, someday you will be mine, by the time I can afford you I'll probably have 4 kids so I hope you come in jumbo form.
Be inspired and get crackin'.
* my loving spouse asked me to clarify to everyone that the midget clothes I'm folding belong to our son and not him.
