It is beautiful outside. Sunny, dry, and warm. So why am I inside. Ever have one of those days where you start out doing great and lose your momentum? That would be me today.
This morning I got up with Ian, got things going around here. Shelby had a sore throat yesterday. I thought it may be allergies. I still think it may be. Regardless, when I woke her at six this morning to get up she was very congested and still had a sore throat. We had plans to go out today. Tip had her shots and check up appointment at eleven. We were going to be around Mama and Daddys, so we were going to go and visit with Mama. There is also a Brandsmart near their house, so we were going to go there and get Shelby a new digital camera. Something she was promised when the taxes came back. Her old one broke on her a few months back so she has been using mine til we get her a new one. We were also going to get a line added to our plan for her and a cell phone for her at Brandsmart.
You KNOW she had to feel bad to not go shopping for these two things. So we stayed home.
That kind of sent me into low gear. I had already picked up the house, loaded the dishwasher, made the bed, got the laundry done, got the animals food ready in buckets, and now we werent going anywhere.
So I waited til light and let the chickens out. Then I sat around for a short while...kinda like this...
So if you sit there long enough...you find a shady (I drew the blinds and shades) spot...and take a nap. ;)
I woke up a couple of hours later. Felt pretty refreshed. I was waiting on Shelby to get up, to see how she was feeling so I came on here, just surfing around, reading journals. She got up and her throat felt better, but she is still stuffy. So here I sit, drinking coffee...totally lost my momentum.
There will always be something that needs doing. I know that. I need to finish taking that old pen apart.
I need to paint Derbys house.
I need to paint the front steps.
The house needs dusting.
The porch isnt finished where I started cleaning it up.
Still I sit here, drinking coffee, relaxing. I hope the coffee kicks my rear into gear in a little while. Just one of those days I reckon.
When you have big plans to be gone all day...and then its cancelled, I guess you kind of just deflate for a little while. I will get outside this afternoon.
I guess I dont have to always be doing something do I?
I get that from being a manager at Dominos Pizza many moons ago. They brainwashed us all into thinking we had to be busy doing something all the time. We should never be idle. There was always something to do. Old habits die hard I guess. ;) I am trying to break that habit though, right now anyway.
