For the past 3 hours, I have had a scattered brain as my mind begins to wrap around everything I must get done this week. My work sits in front of me. I pick it up and get busy for a few minutes and then my mind moves onto something else. Something more entertaining and appealing. Something that is just not so hard.
And definitely not as involved.
From Facebook to Pinterest to getting up for yet another glass of water, I feel like an all over the place toddler.
Except my other distraction, the adult one for the night is laundry and meal planning.
I finally get back to work and the littlest wakes up.Through some whispered pleas, she finally goes back to sleep and I am left with the many tasks at hand again.
I take a deep breath and….
my husband makes noises and it is more distracting then any Facebook, “Which Harry Potter character am I?” quiz.
One day, I will somehow manage my life in a more time efficient way. Perhaps one that involves me going to bed at a decent time so I can wake up without a struggle.
Grocery shopping will get done in ONE trip!
Freezer meals will be my thing. Really. They will.
Laundry will get transferred to the dryer right after the washing cycle is complete.
Frozen waffles will not be a daily breakfast for my kids. I will buy frozen pancakes too.
My clothes will be picked out the night before for the next day. They will magically fit.
I will be calm, patient, and loving as I quietly but firmly tell my kids to put on their shoes and get in the car when it is time to leave.
I will know exactly where we left those shoes.
Lunch will be healthy because I will have bought all the right things on my ONE grocery trip.
The coffee travel cup will not be left at home again. EVER.
Am I the only one who forgets to actually turn the dishwasher on? I need to do better with that.
Every afternoon, I will smile and think of the many things I am thankful for even after any kind of work meeting.
I will embrace the crazy moments with my kids and spend as much quality time with them before they decide I am no longer cool.
I probably should add I will not snap at my husband for making noises. I guess he has to eat like anyone else.
One day, I will probably get my work done too.
