Listen up people. I have something to admit.

I need some help!

I have gotten so lazy lately. I can try to find a million things to blame it on. Work…kids…house work…whatever.

Basically everything is done that needs to be done, but my craft time always gets shoved on the back burner. I want to craft, but by the time I get a chance to sit down…I’m tired. I haven’t finished my craft room yet, so I have to drag all my stuff out of the closet. That alone is enough for me to be turned off by the idea.

I guess first things first. I need a space that is dedicated to my craft materials. I don’t like leaving it out on my dining room table. We eat there every meal and I just don’t like the mess being in my face all day. I must get the craft room organized. Even if the walls aren’t painted, there’s no reason why I can’t set up tables and stuff. Right? Why haven’t I thought about this before? (Probably out of laziness.)

What do you do when you get unmotivated? I need help! How do I work, clean, home school, cook, exercise, spend time with family, and craft on a daily basis? I know I don’t have to finish a project every time I sit down, but once I sit down I don’t want to stop until it’s finished! I just feel like I don’t have enough time in my days. It’s very frustrating. There’s gotta be a way to manage my time better…make better use of the time I do have.

If you have suggestions please share! I want to get out of this rut I’m in. Somebody come help! I need a craft room stat! 🙂

Enjoy your weekend.

It’s raining here. We’re in a significant weather advisory for our county. High winds and possible hail. I love rain, but storms in Oklahoma just freak me out. The older I get, the more of a baby I am!! I’m worse than the kids when it comes to this stuff!

I am so thankful tomorrow is a holiday and we have another day off. All around great weekend. So great that I need an extra day to recoup. 😉

Marley goes back home tomorrow. I love when we she comes to spend the weekends with us. She will go home tomorrow and come back Friday, so she won’t be gone to long! Next weekend we’re going to an amusement park! The kids are on a countdown! 7 more days!

Today was our running day. This week has been harder than I expected. Jeremy’s knees have been bothering him and I feel like a big sack of bricks. I think we may do week 2 again, just to make sure we are 100% ready to start week 3. Although we did make it the entire time…I barely made it. I wanted to quit so bad, but I didn’t. I guess that is a good thing!

Anyone doing couch to 5k experience the same thing? Did you move along to the next week or repeat the week? I’m kinda back and forth. I feel like we should move forward and just push through, but at the same time I want to make sure we are physically ready. I don’t know what to do!! Help!

Besides running, we just hung out around the house. Jeremy made a great dinner tonight. (I love when he cooks.) I did laundry and other boring stuff like cleaning etc. It always feels good to have a clean house. Now that I think about it…I still have a load of towels in the dryer. Ugh! That means I still have one more load to fold!!!

I better go and get that done before I forget again.

See you all tomorrow.

Have a great Labor Day!!!

P.S. Am I the only one in shock that it’s already September?! Where has the year gone!!??

Work, work, and more work.

Do you ever put your work off until the last-minute and then you’re overloaded with 100 things? I do this all the time. I justify it though. At least I’m putting off work to spend time with my family, right? Most nights I stay up until 1 or 2 o’clock, working and answering emails. I get lots of things done in those hours. Kids are sleeping and it’s nice quiet. It’s all fine and dandy until the next morning and I don’t want to wake up because I’m extremely tired.

I need to find a better way to manage my time throughout my day. I know there’s plenty of time I could do things here and there and not put it off until the end of the day or even week. Working from home is harder than one thinks. Especially when you have small children. How do you possibly get everything done in one day? Believe me, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love that I have the option to work from home . I am not complaining, but asking for your help. Do you work from home? What have you found most beneficial for you at managing family and work?

Any tips help.

I better get to work. Tomorrow is Monday and there are lots to be done!

Hope you all had a great weekend and enjoy (the always dreaded) Monday!! 🙂
