What I should be doing… and… am I a coffee addict?

It’s almost midday here, and I’ve done almost nothing. I’ve changed, fed, and dressed the baby; and I just made myself coffee, and I’m sipping it while I watch June Cleaver prance around on TV. That’s about it. I don’t know what’s wrong with me today, but I’m just so tired and have no motivation.

I’m backlogged on laundry. I need to wash clothes and fold the piles of clean laundry. The kitchen needs my attention, and so do the bathrooms. Hubby had to work today, so I’d like to get the place looking presentable before he gets home. I’ve got dinner planned at least, and it will be easy, fast, and delicious. I’m making my scrumptious cheesy polenta bake!

Wow, you know what? As I’m sitting here, typing, I’m starting to wake up. Am I that reliant on caffeine?!

Do you ever have one of these days? When you just can’t get motivated?

  1. Every morning I have that routine. Wake up, feed and change baby. Change my son. Feed my three kids. Then I have to have coffee. At least 2 cups. I know how it feels. I didn’t know laundry got folded. lol

  2. You have hit on one of my biggest fears 🙂 During my first pregnancy, which blessed us with the lovely young lady I am nursing as I type this, coffee wasn’t an option. Oh, I planned to drink my OK’d 6 ounces everyday, but she had other plans. Every cup went right over the front porch balcony with a vengeance 🙁 I’m sure my neighbors were super impressed……My husband and I are planning a second baby and I’m just not sure I can face 9 months of at home mommyhood without my caffeine fix! LOL Here’s hoping the next one goes easier on my caffeine obsession!

    1. Oh no! I avoided caffeine until the last trimester which was rough. I was teaching high school English and had to be alert at 7am…I nursed one cup of coffee from about 6:45 to 10am. I don’t know what I would have done if I couldn’t have any at all in those last months!
