I have been in a total funk lately, tired and unmotivated but today I can feel the wind changing.
My house has been a mess, the girls haven't been all that co-operative and so its hard to find the time to clean, or if I do have a little time they are off making a mess somewhere else so it is counter productive to clean one area as it means a new mess in another. Also, my tiredness and motivation have been lacking, here is a picture of my kitchen earlier today. So I raided my coin jar, who knew we had so many quarters?!! and off I went to in-and-out, grabbed myself a fabulous legal addictive stimulant (aka diet coke) and had re-newed energy for the rest of the day.
I got Kate a shake, got an extra cup so Sara could have a little, big mistake, she took a few sips then just played with the cup, ended up tipping it upside down behind her head and then cried because it was stuck and cold milkshake was running down her back. I may have cried too but I had just downed my lovely caffeinated beverage and so I laughed at the situation. I gave her a little of the shake in the first place so she wouldn't cry because she didn't have the same thing as her sister and she ended up crying anyway.
So tonight, I used my renewed energy or just caffeinated high to clean my kitchen and I am very pleased with the result. I had a fabulous talk tape my friend Brooke gave me and I cleaned for a few hours, I scrubbed the cabinet doors, the walls, the floor, you name it, if it is in my kitchen it got Clorox cleaned up!! I'm feeling happy again.
