I feel my best when I am productive. Doesn't everybody?
Sometimes, especially lately, I've had a really hard time feeling productive and/or accomplished. With a newborn in the house, I've had to train myself to use any free time I am given for napping. And it's been great. I have gotten very good at it. Unfortunately, all this napping has not helped me cross anything off of my ever-growing list of things to do to turn this house more into a home.
Well, this week, I decided I need to start shaping up. I need to plan naps a little better (because there's no way I'm just going to give up on naps) so that I can still get things done around this place ...instead of just moping around in my pajamas* until three in the afternoon.
I finally bought some fall decorations and set them up, I bought supplies to replace the wreath that's been hanging on our door since last fall, and I have everything I need to design some newborn headbands for a couple of friends who have little girls on the way. Today is a headband/wreath-making day. No nap until I get a few things done around this place.
Now let's just hope little baby is cooperative and wants to nap later today when I finish all of this. Because, honestly, he's the one who is really in charge of what goes on around here.
*pajama days are still going to happen. Maybe we'll just cut it down to three times a week?
