I'm not sure why, but I could not just "get it together" last week. Completely and utterly non-motivated. I didn't do my LBY Bible study, I didn't really clean, and my meals were pretty blah. I was on the phone most of every day, my poor kids. When I wasn't on the phone I was watching that blasted boob tube. Every day before I knew it 4 pm rolled around and I had barely brushed my teeth. (No, I'm not depressed; in case you were wondering.) This was not on account of me not having a lot on my plate. I really did/do. I was just totally uninterested in any of it. I'm making myself sound like a superb human being, aren't I?
So, this week I am having a phone and "mostly" tv fast. I say "mostly" because the season finale of Grey's comes on tonight and AI is tomorrow and Wed. But I promise that is it! The phone fast is happening simply because I really don't know when to stop talking. If I am on the phone you are almost guaranteed a 1 hour conversation unless someone beeps in or you have to go. When I have about 5 different people I talk to a day..well, you can see where that adds up.
I have been planning this for a while in response to Lori's post on being present with your kids. I know that I am not nearly enough. So there you have it! If you call and I don't answer, just email me!
On another completely unrelated matter. I can't believe I said this to my kids last week. As we were in the car about to be on our way to a meeting I asked Reia if she wanted Froot Loops on the way as a snack or fries from Chick Fil A (love them, don't you?). She said Froot Loops and I looked her square in the face and said, "Well, I am stopping for fries and I am NOT sharing with you." Am I 5 years old or what? I'm submitting my mother of the year ballot later today.
