Today's Motivation

Is going to come from somewhere that I drum up in my imagination and determination. I'm not sure how the day is going to have gone when tonight rolls around and I crawl in bed, but for the moment I feel the strong urge to grab the bull by the horns.

Between being gone and just not feeling so grand alot of the time (more never-ending cold stuff), the house needs some serious work. So here, now, today I am going to shove all else aside and hopefully get caught up. To add to the motivation, here's what I would love to get done: (and it may all happen either in my bathrobe or some comfy, I-hope-nobody-comes-to-the-door clothes)

Clean up all the dishes - almost done. Dishes take for.ev.er for some reason!
6 loads of laundry washed, dried and put away - 3 loads washed, need to finish drying them.
Puree peaches
Puree roast beef
Cook and puree chicken
Start freezing said pureed baby food
Finish the sort and switch Susannah's clothes project
Make Banana Muffins/Bread
Make some type of headway in the Christmas shopping department

It doesn't look like a long list, but I think it will fill up my day. I hope to stop back by and update as I get stuff done. Thanks for joining me - leave me some comment luv to cheer me on!

Wait - first on my list is to find my Advil C&S. It's somewhere. Just not where it belongs.

Update #1: Ha! Who was I kidding?! I crawled in bed and took a nice half hour nap. I don't FEEL any better but at least I'm not as tired. Ok, NOW to find the Advil...

Update #2:
Well, it is slow going over here. I still haven't found the Advil but I am feeling better than I did this morning. Not close to normal yet but I don't feel like something the cat drug in. Lunch was very late. 2 loads of laundry are washed and need dried, and I'm still working on the dishes. Alot of time consuming hand-washables. I have spent some time online - found a good sale on Coconut Oil that I think I'm going to take advantage of. I need to get the food processor washed so I can get the roast beef ground up for Susannah's supper. And move the laundry around and start another load.

Update #3: I think I am coming down the home stretch. With the dishes. Good grief. There is a good reason to stay on top of them every day. Alot of this list is going to go "poof" into thin air, at least for today. But Daniel will have clean clothes, and the kitchen will be in much better shape. Sally cautioned me to not stay up late trying to get the list done. I'm not, I'm going to work on stuff for another hour and call it quits.

Wow! That's a serious list. Good luck!

Good attitude! I think you'll at least get off the ground, even if you don't get to moon walk! This reminds me to do some or all of my online shopping today.

You are still ahead of me. I finally have ditched this week's goals, am canceling out of events, and am licensing myself to lots of couch time and generalized bare minimum work. This misery has got to go! There are times to push ahead full-steam even when you don't feel like it, and times to pull down the shades, keep on the PJ's, eat cold cereal, and try to feel better sooner. Right now, I'm in the latter gear. Now, I'm off to lie down on the couch some more.

Don't stay up too late tonight trying to get your list done. It will only subtract from any health and wellness that might be possible for tomorrow.
