Monday Motivation

by - February 08, 2021

Happy Monday, friends! It's been a cold, wet, gray weekend in my neck of the woods. We didn't do a whole lot. I kind of let housework slide last week - I got overwhelmed and just couldn't deal with it, so that meant we had quite a few chores to accomplish.

To be fair, a lot of the mess was Alexis's stuff. Somehow her room exploded and overtook the rest of the house without me noticing. I'm definitely not a helicopter parent, and as a result Alexis has become pretty self-sufficient for an almost 6 year old, but we are struggling in the 'put stuff away after we use it' department. I had to use my mean stern mom voice more than once on our cleaning spree.

I bit the bullet and bought a desktop computer for my office. It came in late Friday so I spent a good chunk of Saturday getting it set up and getting all my stuff from my laptop copied over. There's nothing technically wrong with my laptop; it still works fine, but after nearly three years of constant daily use for not just work but also personal stuff, it's starting to show signs of wear and tear. Plus, on the chance that our school system decides to move to all virtual in the spring, it'll be good to have more than one computer in the house.

My week will mostly revolve around magazine distribution. I've got to get some Valentine's goody bags put together for Alexis's class party at the end of the week, and I've got some Valentine themed posts planned for this week.

Speaking of Valentine's, how are you guys celebrating? Chris has to work and Alexis is going to see her grandparents. Maybe I'll make some heart-shaped pancakes or something for breakfast that morning. I don't know.

Well, after taking two days off last week to deal with some personal stuff, I've got a lot to get done today, so I'd best get to it. I hope you all have an amazing week!
