Most of yesterday was spent mopping around as my youngest daughter would not let me get a moment to think or do any work (no surprise there). Her interruptions just fueled my desire not to sit at my desk. I know I have a full week of work, but not only couldn't I get anything accomplished I didn't feel like getting anything done either.
What is the problem? I kept wondering.
Then it dawned on me that this "problem" happens about once a month or so. I get behind on work. I get behind on visiting my favorite sites and commenting or dropping... my email backs up. I neglect paid posts. It's an ugly vicious cycle that I'd like to stop.
It dawned on me that when I start to feel this way maybe I should take my laptop, which is not really a laptop since it has to be plugged in (whole 'nother story), and hang out in the kitchen or on the couch. A relocation would require a little more concentration and a lot more of "no Anna don't touch that," but it may be just what I need to keep the momentum of working going.
If I start to get frustrated or distracted then you may find me on the couch watching TV and tapping away or in the kitchen temporarily gazing out of the window. I was thinking about lounging on my king-sized bed with laptop in tow and tricking Anna into taking a nap. Wish my house sat on the beach then I could move my home office to the deck each day and get inspiration and relaxation from the ocean - wishful thinking.
That is what's inspiring me this week. What's inspiring you? To read more or to share your own, head on over to Maternal Spark.
