I am feeling motivationally challenged today. I open up my email and see all the things I could be doing... but don't feel like it. I see the stack of library books on apples we need to be reading before they are all due again... but I can't get motivated to start reading. There is a stack of laundry waiting to be folded... but I can't bring myself to actually fold it. I really should get in my car and run some errands I need to run... but that just seems like a whole lot of effort.
I did shower today, so in my opinion I am way ahead of the game.
Ever have days where you are motivationally challenged?
To be honest, I am really surprised I worked up the energy it took to write this post. All I really want to do is put my pajamas back on, get under the covers and read a great book and surf some blogs I haven't had the time to read. But what I need to do is to take care of my family. I also have some writing that I really should be doing. I am thankful that I don't have to cook dinner tonight-- there were enough leftovers from the pork tenderloin from last night to have that again tonight. So it's GYO (Get Your Own) night here at the Whalens... the timing couldn't be better.
In other news, CSI premieres tonight... and I know what it says about me to be as truly excited about this television event as I am. You don't need to tell me. But Warrick Brown dies tonight, folks. And Sarah comes back. I ask you, what is more motivating than that? Oooooh, I am getting excited just thinking about it!
ETA (Edited To Add): I just made hot chocolate and hot tea for us, then sat down at the table with the kids and read Johnny Appleseed and Mr. Peabody's Apples (which is a must read... even if it is by Madonna). I feel much better about things having done that-- it might just be because I actually accomplished something or because the kids and I had a moment together or... the caffeine in the tea I drank. Or some combination thereof.
Also, Warrick Brown really does die I think-- not to be a spoiler here but I am pretty sure I read that Gary Dourdan was going off the show.
