The Beginning

So I finally have gotten around to opening up my own blog. Here's a glimpse of my mind's musings, enjoy!

Lately I've been rather discontented. I'm tired of my hair, my clothes, the way my house is decorated, my house itself, the idea of going back to work, and the list goes on. I want to change
everything. The problem is, I'm not really sure how I'd change things. I was explaining this unsatisfation to my mom and she said that it is likely because I thrive on accomplishment. I feel bad when I'm unproductive. Most of my week days are uneventful because I'm caring for Sierra. She only naps for an hour or so at a time and needs constant attention when she's awake. I love her to bits and enjoy playing with but I feel like I should be keeping the house clean, laundry up to date, groceries stocked, and make supper every day. Trevor has never made me feel bad for my lack of productivity or even said that he expects these things. In a way I think that it's only fair since he is the one earning a living.
Then I sit back and really look at all I have and do and I don't feel so bad.

My theory...tummy time is an accomplisment. Focus on that and that alone, and all your problems will be solved! :)

Hey I feel EXACTLY the same way! You're not alone in that. What I started to doing was making a list of 5 things to work on for the week - work and fun scrapbooking, clean the bathroom, go to the library, etc. That way you have something to work for for the week, and if you have a really busy day, you don't have to worry about it. At the end of the week when you see the 5 things crossed off your list, you feel all the more accomplished :)

Good idea, I did the list thing during the summer but somehow stopped.
