I'm in a funk I just can't shake. It's become a habit I'm afraid. A Big Bad Habit. Of doing nothing. I haven't worked out in over a month. My little slice of blogosphere is bare. I haven't planned out a menu plan in who knows how long which means I've made very few planned meals. I've also gained back almost half of my weight I lost. And I'm all flabby. Every part of my life; from my diet, to the garden, to the house, to my organization, is out of whack, out of control and in total chaos. I have lots of great reasons/excuses, but at this point it just needs to be done with.
Time to get motivated. Time for the excuses to go away. Time for lunzy to get her groove back. I found my way to a new blog via PW called Room 704. Anyway, she has a 30 day challenge- Do [blank] for 30 days starting on Aug. 1. I'm not sure if I'm doing "the challenge" but Aug. 1, tomorrow, is a good day to shake off the funk and get my groove back. The kiddos are starting school at the end of the month and I need to get my good habits back (which is said to take 30 days, hence the challenge) before K and PreK worlds collide with my own world.
I consolidated all the new calendars- Volleyball schedule, K school, Pre-K school, various board meetings, College calendar- into one, family calendar. I weeded the garden yesterday and pulled out all the stuff that bolted during our trip, and tied back our crazy renegade tomato plants. I still need to transplant our pepper plants (they are getting NO sun due to the craziness of the tomato plants.) The laundry mountain is slowly going away. BigDaddy is my dirty dish hero. And I don't feel like a truck ran me over and left for dead with two munchkins yelling MOOOOOOOOMM! non-stop. A good set up for getting one's groove back. So another day of planning, dr. appts (BB's K physical), and getting moving. Tomorrow we start! Who's with me?
Transplanting the pepper plants will probably result in their death. Is there a way you could tie back the tomato plants to give them more light? You are correct that pepper plants need full sun, but I tried to move a young plant once and it died. I don't think a larger plant would take to this well either.
Glad you're back :)
Lisa, you inspire me! Maybe I should join in..
Good job getting your groove back. Don't be so hard on yourself. You have a lot on your plate. You will be fine. Think in a month you will have a couple of hours of total free time. Yea for school.
I'm with you on working out! And - what are you doing mid - Sept? I think I might be able to swing a visit! Just feed me tomatoes and wine...
ITChe- I know, they just aren't getting ANY sun. Totally covered from the crazy tomatoes. :( Glad to be back too!
Karin- No maybe's missy!
Madge- thanks. A lot on my plate? Always. But it will just get worse with school starts. :) School year starting just makes it harder actually, no playmate for Sassy, VB season starts and lots of meetings for me. Break time is over, time to get back to work :)
Lola- mid sept is Sassy's bday. Mom is visiting, let's chat about dates. would loooove to see you!
Never tried to transplant much in my garden...hope it works for you though. My garden is getting huge too but my tomatoes are not. We will be lucky with many good ones at all because they need more heat! Not complaining though...love our weather! And as for the motivation...Go Lisa! Call me anytime you need a cheering squad.
