good dose of motivation

Since I'm now "staying at home," productivity looks different than when I was working as a teacher. Sometimes I work all day and feel like I haven't done a single thing. Yesterday I had products to prove that I was productive - all I needed was a good dose of motivation.

I saw a good-looking banana/oatmeal/chocolate chip muffin thingy recipe on pinterest a few nights ago - and after realizing that we had all the ingredients -  I decided to make them this morning. They were yummy {and pretty healthy} and will make it into my recipe binder. {I have a binder where I specifically cut the pages to fit a little notebook - and once a recipe has been "approved," it's added to the collection.}

2 etsy orders made and shipped

Yesterday I made those muffins, cleaned, did a load of laundry,* fed little man, showered {and actually dried my hair} all before teaching a sewing lesson at 9:30.

Then thanks to Simon's solid 3 hour nap, I was able to finish 2 etsy orders, do a load of diapers,* and find this "card" on pinterest - it made me laugh so loud that I almost woke up my baby:


Tom never thinks the things that I think are super funny are really that funny. But this is a true story - my English brain does not and has never understood word problems. Gross.

*Doing a load of laundry and a load of diapers is not the same thing - I'll explain more in my future diaper post

  1. I've seen that "math equation" before and it is SO me! I feel the same way, sometimes the day is over with and I feel like I could have been more productive. Maybe I've been looking at too many blogs and pinterest posts from people who can do it all! <3


I love comments. It's like getting mail.
