It's a bad sign.....

Josh got up, showered and left for school before I rolled my lazy butt out of bed. "So...that's how this day will be...." I thought to myself.

I had a relatively productive morning including some minor meltdowns between Tommy and me. I think today he wishes someone else was his mom....and while I can't say it out loud, I'm almost ready to agree with him.

It's now 11:23am and I'm sitting at my computer back in my pajama pants with a plate of nachos and roughly 7 hours of work to complete before Tommy wakes up in an hour. I'm entirely convinced that I've maxed out my productivity for the day. It's now 11:24am. Maxed. Out. Before noon.

I have no intention of getting anything real done for the rest of the day. I intend to have my very own tv marathon watching anything and everything I can get my hands on. I intend to eat cookie dough ice cream for lunch (maybe sprinkled with some blackberries) and ramen noodles for dinner. I intend to go to bed when Tommy does at 7 and maybe read a little more of my book when he wants to play in his room.

Why? Because I think I've fulfilled my daily productivity requirement. That's why. And all the un-done things around here can wait until the productive fairy comes and refills my tank.


  1. sometimes you just need to give yourself permission to have days like this. so, if it helps at all i am fully on board with you doing that.
    also, it is 1:55 pm and i am still in my pajama pants and have done zero things productive with my day unless you call productive walking cole 2 houses down for school (in my pj pants). luke won't be home till ten and i plan on continuing the rest of my day this way too.
    happy vegging. if you want company, give me a shout.

  2. Good for you. I was going to do that too but I thought I would venture out today and do some shopping, since it has been since monday that we have gone really anywhere.

  3. I love this post. I always have days like this, so I'm glad I'm not the only one. Do you concider yourself a "mormon mommy blogger"? I just like that you're keeping it real. P.S. I think you're cool because you have 70 followers. GO YOU!
