Funky Funk

Yay! It's finally Friday! This week has dragged on for me. Friday couldn't get here soon enough!


Guys, I've been in a funky funk this week. You know that feeling? I've had zero motivation to do much of anything. I hate that feeling. 
This week I've done the bare minimum to get by. The bare minimum around the house, with my son, with myself, and with the blog. And I feel not so good because of it. 
I want to be better. A better wife. A better mom. A better blogger. A better person.


I am a very goal oriented person. I work and feel best when I have an objective to complete. I have many long term goals that I'm working towards, but those are long term, not going to be completed for a long time. To get through my day to day, I think I need to set myself some goals. I'm going to make one of these:

I think doing this will give me some structure and direction for my day to day life. I love being a stay at home mom, but sometimes I miss the structure and expectations of a workday. I also miss that feeling of a 'Job well done'. Changing diapers, folding laundry, and playing cars just don't give me the same personal fulfillment that my job did. 


Yesterday afternoon as I was sitting on the couch with no plans other than; to watch blue's clues, make dinner, and get B to bed. I said to myself "Jaimee, you've got to get it in gear!
I'm also a list maker. I easily feel overwhelmed by the things I need to do. For whatever reason, they aren't so scary when I write them down. 
That was my Thursday night. It seemed like a lot to do, but once I got up and did it, it didn't take that long. I even had time to write this blog while I sipped my moscato! It isn't much but it's a start! 
And while I took 30 seconds to collect my thoughts and write that list, B was doing this
Yes, that's dog food in the water dish...YUCK
Such is the life of a mom! You clean the messes, they make more! 

I hope you have a terrific weekend. I know I will now that I'm not all funky

I'm a list maker too :D. I have no memory, if I don't write down, it will never get done!

For you question about Benefit Bright, I actually never tried it on my waterline, but it's a great idea!
