It’s a simple enough thing, and it typically works. Yesterday I got out of bed tired, grumpy and not wanting to participate in the world much – I ended up not doing a lick of housework (okay, maybe I did a load of washing and you know, all the other basic stuff like getting children dressed and fed, beds and lunches made) nor a scrap of writing. It was a long day, and I spent most of it in a not so pleasant mood.
Despite another night of rough sleep (sick kids! ack!) I decided I would not waste another day. I started the morning off by tickling my child, which always puts me in a good mood lol toddler giggles rock. Despite the fact it was only 6am I boiled the jug so that I could start washing dishes (and I’m not letting the fact that I cannot use my hot tap get me down!) and got those out of the way nice and early. I feel soooo much better for getting stuck into things right away. By 920am I’d dropped hubby and Ivy at work and school, posted some parcels off and done the grocery shopping, and got most of the housework out of the way. An hour later, I’m even closer to being done.
Another half hour and its Lauren’s nap time and you know what? I’m not going to waste it. I’m on fire now. I’ve started out the day busy, getting stuff done and I’m not going to stall now. The Comfort of Wood needs its first draft finished, and I really want to get that out of the way. I needed some fire though to write it, well I’m burning baby, let’s make the whole world shine.
In other news: I should have my car back by Friday!! Oh how I have missed being a two vehicle family. I’ll be so happy not to have to drop off/pick up hubby from work and it’ll mean I don’t have to rush to get everyone ready to leave the house by 745am.
Baby is doing great, I’m 100% healthy and rocking this pregnancy thing which is always nice to hear. Scarily, I’m now in the ‘less than two months to go’ phase and wow that freaks me out in so many ways. I’m avoiding thinking about all the technical stuff (like feeding two little ones and finding ways to get enough sleep) and focusing on the fact that I’ll give this wee one the best start to life I possibly can while continuing to love and support my other two children.
Hell, bring it on! I’m totally up to the challenge.
Have an awesome day/night folks!
