I Moved My Desk & Got To Work

Have you ever just been a place where nothing really is working, but you cannot put your finger on what it is?  I can say in my work life that is happening some. I found that I was having a hard time trying to create, stay focused, and put out quality work without taking forever to do so. I decided to move my desk ad got to work. Yup, that is what worked.

II moved my desk & got to workt was very simple. If you are in a situation that is just not working, you have to change where you are. I am not a genius, but I know far too many times I have allowed myself to stay stuck and just feel out of it for far too long. It really took me five minutes to pick up my desk, place it in the front bedroom, and get a view of the sunshine, trees, and airborne soldiers.  I could seriously watch Airborne School all day, and it provides a nice break every so often to regroup and clear my mind.

Have you found yourself drifting in your day-to-day as a stay-at-home  entrepreneur or just a mom who is at home with a laundry list of things to do for you and your household?  It is never a bad idea to write down what you want to or need to accomplish for the day. Regardless if it is in a planner, on a piece of paper, on your phone – just do it! it will allow you to see what your day looks like. This can help allow you to maybe push an errand to another day, or do an additional item, or enjoy some time with your family and friends.

I like to make a couple lists – things to do with dates they have to be done by and I place this at the beginning of my planner for the month that I am in. Then as I plan out my days I can place things as needed on the schedule. I try not overthink this. It is a planner yes, but it can be done with a pencil so that I don’t  have a heart attack when things don’t go right. I do tend to do this. Thankfully they also make stickers you can place on things that say canceled or rescheduled. They make your schedule changes pretty.

Fly On The Wall – #1

Fly On The Wall #1 is another one of my  new writing challenges!  This one is for sure to make you chuckle! It is randomness that has happened in my house and I couldn’t help but shake my head about.

Incident #1

I woke up one morning to start the coffee for my husband before work. There is an ice cream container sitting on the counter – melted. I ask my 3 year old about it when she some down the stairs. She says, “It wasn’t me mommy. I am so tired I am going to go to sleep now.”

Right…..

Incident #2

Parent: What are you doing with long sleeves and pants on outside? It is 90+ degree weather!
3 year old: It is hot outside.
Parent: Yes, yes it is – so why are you wearing items that will make you hotter?
3 year old: Because I want to.

Okay….

Incident #3

3 year old: I want ice cream
Parent: It is not even 9:00 am, no.
3 year old: But I want it.
Parent: I said no.

10 minutes later….

3 year old: mommy…it’s after 9:00 am. Sissy told me so.
*sigh*

Incident #4

When it comes to closet doors I am kind of crazy about them being shut all the way. I hate that my kids will “shut” them, but not make sure they hear the “click” to close it.

“Mom you told me to close it, and I did.”
“You need to make sure the door ‘clicks’ shut and doesn’t just appear to be shut.”
“Then why didn’t you say that?”

I mean is there really more than one way to consider something shut?

Incident #5

“Hey kids , when you unload the dishwasher can you make sure that when you close the door you hear the ‘click’ of it closing so it doesn’t slam open?”
“Mom – do you think we don’t know how to shut a door?”
“No, I don’t.”
Blank stares…..

Please tell me I am not the only one with this issue…..

Now go on and check out the rest of the posts that my fellow bloggers created as well!

Secret Swap – July Prompt

Along with last Friday’s post, Secret Swap – July Prompt, is from the new challenge group I am in! I am so excited that this is starting to give me help with topics and encouragement with writing!

Today’s secret swap prompt was was submitted by Kimberly Yavorski.
The prompt is:
If you could permanently relocate to your favorite vacation spot, would you? Why or why not?

If I could permanently relocate it is a tough one. Alaska or Panama City Beach. Alaska has nice cool summers (no humidity) and I love a long fall. Long sleeves and jeans – yes please! Panama City Beach has the beach. I just am not sure that I could deal with the threat of hurricanes. Now if you would have asked me about staying in Alaska my first year we lived there – I would have said absolutely not, but the place really grew on me! I started to learn to love it! The only major downside is that it is expensive to go and visit people in the lower 48. BUT, being in the lower 48 for over a year now – people still don’t visit that often, and so I kinda wonder if that is a valid excuse anymore.

Beautiful, isn’t it?

I am not regretting my decision of Alaska. That is where I would go. A perfect touristy place in the summer, but home throughout.  I can deal with cold, hot just gets too much sometimes I think. At least for me. You can only take off so much clothing, you can always put on more!

Are you a warm weather person or cold?

Don’t forge to visit the person who provided me my Secret Swap Prompt to see what she was given! Then you can hop from blog to blog reading everyone’s take on what they were given to write about.
