I have all this stuff I'm going to do - and then 2pm hits and I'm done. I have to scrape my buns off the chair or couch to make dinner, clean up a bit, etc. So much for those great plans to make bread and actually clean!
I'm pooped.

Heh. I vacuumed the whole house this morning and tidied up (this was before 10?) so that it would be done. And then, as I was considering taking a nap, a good friend called so we chatted while I began making bread. So while I'm not thoroughly exhausted, I'm ok with what I've accomplished. And I'm ok that the kids are watching Backyardigans. Then I'm kicking them out into the yard while I make broccoli cheese soup. And that, my friends, is all we're having for dinner. Because the thought of anything else repulses me. I'm gonna sleep well tonight (IhopeIhopeIhope).

If I'm having an attack of sit my a** on the couch and not move, I refuse to turn on the TV. Instead I read - so I feel like I'm accomplishing something.
