Let’s start out with explaining that I need to be home where it’s quiet to work. I am without a noiseproof workspace. An office with a door would be wonderful, but that’s not how our home is set up at this stage. When school is out, and my schedule is thrown to the wind, it becomes difficult to remain productive. There is noise and constant, “Ma. Ma. Ma. Ma. Ma. Ma. Ma.” interruptions. We’re also on the move quite a bit. Break is a great time for friends coming over, and planning day trips. It’s not so good for working.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, but I used to draw. It was in another life of mine (not really… high school and after). It’s all I did creatively. Maybe I painted too. I don’t really remember. I do know that I always had a sketchbook on me and was usually drawing some crazy monster with rings coming out of its head and googly eyes.
In starting my day with one SCREAMING Dr. Destructo (overtired by a dinner out for Grandma’s birthday) over how Kiddo put invisible boogers on his waffle and in his orange juice and having Kiddo bounce off the walls for about an hour straight (all before 8:30 am), I’ve officially decided that since I didn’t yell or bang their heads together, I win for the day. I just wanted to share that with you all. My brains are still rattling. Oh the joys of motherhood.
Day four is finally here! I’ve been waiting all week for this one. Today is our pet lovers day. Your one stop (I hope) place to list and find gifts for your pet or animal loving pals and your furry pals too. (cough*Ihaveapug*cough). (Click here to see what the to-do is all about if you are lost, by the way.)
Today is the day of the kiddies. In my opinion, this is the easiest gift guide there is, aside from jewelry. That’s just me though. Again, if you are wondering what this whole holiday gift guide mumbo jumbo is, click here for a quick refresher.
I’ve had it with summer vacation. I’m not going to lie. I’m not going to say I’ll miss them while they’re at school. I will miss them, but I will also be GETTING THINGS ACCOMPLISHED. I’m almost giddy in anticipation.
