Weekly Inspiration: Change of scenery

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.


  1. maybe a relocation is just what you need. is the weather there still nice? do you have an outside outlet? does anna like to be outside? maybe that's just the thing you need. just throwing that out there for you my friend. have a wonderful day...hugz!

  2. A change in scenery can be the best way to spark inspiration and get out of a rut.... great idea! I need to make a more conscious effort to do this once in awhile.


What's up men & women of my world! I am all a-giggle that you decided to comment. You're what make this world go 'round... ya know? This "world." I love you! Smooches. :-)
