Whoa! Can you say slacker? Sorry to leave you blog stalkers waiting so long for an update! Well, I haven't actually been slacking, just in the blogosphere world. I will explain.I have made quite an effort to get more organized. Not in one particular area, just overall, more organized. With two little boys, ages 1 and 2, I found myself in an unproductive slump. I kept blaming it on the cold weather but unfortunately have diagnosed it with pure laziness. I had a mild internet addiction and wasted most of my morning reading blogs, checking facebook statuses, and getting caught up with my family via phone or email. Nap time completely wasted. Entire morning, gone. I would get so far behind that I wouldn't even know where to begin. Anyone relate??? So. I had a personal intervention where I decided it's time for a change. I got myself on a regular workout regimen (Indy mini coming up in 4 weeks!!!), cleaned out my car and home closets, made a laundry schedule, meal schedule, and budget. Wow. I feel so much better. It's amazing what a little organization can do! My days are productive, my kids are better off, my husband happier, and I don't have to feel so guilty sitting down at 3:00 during nap time to watch a little TV (a little obnoxious Rachel Ray anyone???) and browse a few of my favorite blogs. It's amazing how starting your day off with a plan can lead to a productive day.
And I don't tell you this to try and convince you I am some sort of super-mom (remember I admitted to blowing my ENTIRE morning on the internet above), but instead to challenge you to get more organized and disciplined in areas that are weighing heavily on you.
Hope you are encouraged or inspired or just got a good laugh out of what a wasteful loser I have been this winter.
I will leave you with this video of Jace singing Happy Birthday to his favorite guy--Daddy! Happy 31st birthday to my one and only!
Peace out, friends!
