This morning as I was sipping my second cup of homemade iced coffee I was thinking to myself, "Why am I so tired?" Just then I caught a glimps of my to-do. Today, like most other days, that list was 50% complete by 8am. I don't necessarily consider myself a go-getter when it comes to my to-do list; however, I've learned that if I want to be productive, it generally needs to be before 8 am when the monkeys get up for the day or after 9 pm when they're down for the night (and let's face it -- I'm useless after 8:30 pm!).
Today's before 8 am list?
Yes, I really do write all these things down. I enjoy crossing things off my list. It makes me feel productive. I've omitted bathroom breaks from this list, seeing as that might be just a bit too personal. (Kidding. I don't put bathroom breaks/diaper changes on my to-do list.)
2. Feed baby
4. Brush dog (who, by the way, is shedding like nobody's business)
5. Work some more
7. Start a load of laundry
8. Start coffee
9. Get kids' breakfast ready
10. Clean the kitchen/empty dishwasher
11. Make bed
It's no wonder I have a caffeine addiction and the need for a nap just hours after starting my day!
Thank God for renewed energy everyday.
