Alas, some part of my brain objected. Perhaps because my house looks like this:
The pack and play, on the other hand, is something that just plain needs to go. I am clearly using it as an oversized hamper. Amelia doesn't fit on the changing part of it anymore, and Jon wants to move the crib downstairs to put in that spot in an attempt to get Amelia to sleep by herself.
Thinking about all those pictures above about made me go into a procrastinator's slump. How can I clean all this up?!? And of course, I think of how I work all week and that I want to relax, but that exact thought is why my house looks like this. I think that thought all weekend, and then by Monday, I've run out of time and made no progress with cleaning.
One thing that stuck with me from my conference was this tip on time management-- any task that you want to procrastinate on, just tell yourself to do it for ten minutes, and then you can stop. It sounded like pretty good advice, so at 9:45 a.m. I got to work and by 11:00 a.m. I was able to take these pic's:
And it only took just a little longer than ten minutes :)
