It’s Monday… Time to turn on the motivation…Time to get my head in the game…
Which is going to difficult to day because my 7 year is puking…
So we are home…. My hubby is home… my adult daughter is home. That’s a lot of people in the house… a lot of distractions.
And I’m tired. I went into the wilderness this weekend and lived like Daniel Boone in a poorly built cabin without a fireplace.
So I’ve gone from wilderness torture to edit nightmares!!! (Now remember I’m now doing these things doughnut, wine, and vodka free).
I have to turn in my final edits on….
And I need to get this formatted for my newsletter freebie…
AND I should write something new…I have about 15k left on this…
So it’s not from the lack of work that my motivation is no where to be found…it’s just sometimes it be like that. I want to do it but the want isn’t actually moving me in that direction. I’m being pulled into conversations with hubby and daughter.
My 7-year-old has my name on a repeat loop.
I feel like if I do what needs to be done, I’m being neglectful, a bad wife, or a horrible mom. Yet these things need to get done. If I worked outside the home everyone wouldn’t follow me to work but they will invade my home office. I know part of is I haven’t been strict in setting up boundaries but in honesty part of the reason I want to work for home is the home part. I want to be here with my sick child, visit with my hubby and daughter – just NOT today.
Finally, after hours of lost time, I told everyone I needed time. I had deadlines. AND guess what??? They said okay. No looks of hate, no quivering lips, just okay.
So my mindset for this Monday is to remember that I need remember that sometimes the work needs to get done.
Have a great week!
