Unproductive morning, meh.

M-girl is tolerating the first dose given last night very well. She is making the switch to soy milk at the same time since my kids don't do well on Omnicef with milk, anyway. I'm hoping the soy milk will help with her eczema, too. She is very energetic this morning, but her energy wasn't flagging too badly anyway, which is why I took a while to decide to take her to the doctor. I was eating this morning, and she kept running through the house to get a bite of my cereal, then running back to the living room to watch Super Why, then back for another bite. That's good energy and a good appetite! I offered her some cereal in her own bowl, and she jumped for joy. Too cute! A bit later I was munching on some popcorn and she asked for some. She dumped hers into a nearby trash can and then walked off with the can as if it was an appropriate vessel for food. Naturally, I stopped that before any popcorn was consumed!

The stupid dog is on my bad list this morning. She crawled under the fence into the neighbor's yard, which is adjacent to a yard where there is a cute Jack Russell. I tricked her into coming back into our yard and dragged her into her cage. Then I hefted 3 20lb bricks up the hill to block her from doing this again.

I can't get any motivation to get started this morning. I did a bit of rearranging in the kitchen, but I've been up for 4 hours without any further progress. I would like to make bread, put away the junk everyone has left anywhere, and do 2 loads of laundry. Doesn't sound like much, but it seems overwhelming with the week I'm having. I think I can commit to 10 minutes per room between now and 3pm. Not so unreasonable, but M tends to undo things as I go!


  1. 3 loaves of bread are kneading, so I've got some momentum!

  2. My motivation has been slowly climbing. M is napping, and I have 2 rooms straightened. Diapers are washed, and 3 loaves are on final rise in the pans. Dog is currently on parole and knows to be on her best behavior!

  3. Cute colorful diapers are on the line because the sun is out, bread is in the oven, laundry is folded, dog is finding the crumbs on the floor, windows are open, and the Jedis get off the bus in half an hour. The day is getting better and better!

  4. I think I made progress in my home today because I posted my goals. I washed 4 loads of laundry, and the last is in the dryer. The kids played out back this afternoon, and I made a delicious dinner. It was sofrito chicken tacos, rice and beans, and fajita-style veggies, and it was so good! Now we're 2/3 done with bathing the grimy kids, and homework is done. Feels good to have reclaimed some time today!
