After my kids go to bed, I always imagine all the things I'm going to get accomplished. Before they go bed, I have lists going through my head. I set alarms on my phone, write lists on paper, and plan all sorts of ways to accomplish a few additional things to finish my day. Then I get the kids in bed and my brain goes to mush! LOL!
I'm sitting here getting ready to go to bed because the one million five hundred things I had planned to do once my children fell asleep have evaporated into thin air. Balancing the checkbook, making an event image for Ronin Fitness, designing business cards for Enliven Occupational Therapy, emailing Andy about Drea's birthday party and our schedule, designing Drea's birthday party invitations, taking out the trash, folding the towels I washed, getting stuff together so the girls and I can go to the gym tomorrow, and the list goes on and on. Now let's not discuss how this list is completely unachievable and these expectations are way too much to expect of myself in like an hour or two at the end of the day..... We just won't go there. I know that I won't be able to do all of these things but I do hope that I may accomplish at least one or two of them. The problem is I often get to zero of them because I get in this stupid zone out mode and next thing I know it's 10:30 and I should get ready for bed before it's suddenly midnight. Yes, there's nothing wrong with zoning out at the end of your day but I'm there often and especially when the girls are with me.
Anyway, just a note on what is catching my attention about my behavior tonight.
P.S. - After I typed this blog, I did end up taking out the trash, folding the towels, getting our stuff together for the gym and cleaning up the kitchen from dinner....Oh and emailed myself at work to actually look at the to-do list in my purse that I made on Sun. :)
Oh, and the picture below.....my favorite kind of evening zoning out.
