Instead of working out this morning, I worked on my to-do list. I think I’m addicted to giving myself too much to do. I can’t seem to stop signing on for things. I’m always volunteering to help, offering to do something for someone, raising my hand when no one else does. I think I always do this because my brain always comes back to – Sure, why not! I’m a stay at home mom. What else have I got to do? Well dummy, you’ve actually got a ton of stuff do.
OK let’s get to work. But hmmm I think I want some fresh juice to get the day started off right. That sure sounds delightful, doesn’t it? Fresh squeezed orange juice? Oh! Magnificent! I’m a stay at home mom! What else have I got to do with my time but make fresh squeezed orange juice for everyone?
OK shut up and get over yourself. Eat the damn orange like a normal person, save yourself from having to add “clean juicer” to your to-do list and get back to work.
Geez man what a slave driver.
On the do list this morning – get the mortgage ball rolling so we move forward with a very large item on the to do list: “Move into the city”. I had a phone appointment this morning a Mortgage Originator at 9:00. Of course at 8:45 I realized I was hungry. Do I have enough time to add “whip something up for breakfast before I have everyone’s favorite conversation with the bank” to the to-do list? Let’s do it.
Fast fruit cereal. Diced banana covered in cocoa powder and flax, topped with sliced almonds and chocolate unsweetened almond milk. Done.
Quick! Add “Eat breakfast in 7 minutes” to the to-do list!
scarfed ate at my desk and waited for the call from my new mortgage friend Jim.
I’m not sure how Jim feels about his picture showing up on my blog considering we just met this morning, but you can probably pick out his bank mug shot on my monitor in the background. The photo release form is in the mail, and will likely pass our mortgage pre-approval letter like two ships passing in the night!
Thanks Jim! I think I love you. Quick! Add “Hunt for dream home” to the to do list! I’m a stay at home mom! What else have I got to do?
