Catching Up – Motivation Monday

I am still not caught up after being away at Brandcation. Had good intentions and was doing ok until it turned nice on Friday and I had to get transplants planted, then tilling done and baby boy got sick over the weekend. He was burning up for 24+ hours and only wanted to nurse and be with his mama. Thankfully he woke up today with an appetite and his usual peppiness. Now I have to get a talk typed and printed that I am to present tonight at a business meeting – yep, little ole me is speaking to a small group of people, if it isn’t cancelled due to low attendance. Tomorrow we have friends coming over for lunch…and it’s nice again so I have more tilling and planting to get done, not to mention all my Brandcation sponsor posts to write up; in addition to a bit of a back log of other reviews I signed up for which I wish I hadn’t since catching up after Brandcation has been very challenging.

Lesson learned, don’t take on additional reviews the month before Brandcation!

Bear with me as I get my barrings back. I have lots to post, just not enough time to get everything typed up into a post. Here a few highlights to tie you over though:

– Chicks and turkeys are getting their wing feathers in and we now have to have a screen over them or they fly out. One was in the rafters of the garage today!
– Puppy was naughty and nabbed a baby bird, eating its head…ewwwwww! Gotta do something about that since HE is suppose to watch over our poultry!
– Feeling overwhelmed now that it’s frost-free and time to get everything into the ground and get outdoor housing for poultry ready. A little panic has set in…

And now you know why….

    Good tip, since I’m hoping to go to brandcation next year!

  2. I hope to make the next Brandcation, so I will take the “don’t take extra reviews” advise under consideration!

  3. Marcie W. says:

    Sending mental HUGS! I hate feeling overwhelmed.

  4. I know exactly how you feel! I’m so behind, and I came down with an awful cold when we got back that has just gotten worse by the day.

  5. That’s what happens when you travel for work. You actually have to PLAN for being behind and allow yourself recoup time after each trip.

  6. Luckily I didn’t have many reviews waiting on me when I returned from Brandcation. You’ll get it all done!

  7. Tammy says:

    The first week back after going away is the hardest. So much to do.

  8. I’m behind and I didn’t go anywhere!

  9. Jenn says:

    Bad puppy! Hubs crushed one of our hens heads on accident while moving their tractor to fresh grass. I can’t believe she’s ok!

  10. Stefanie says:

    Take your time! I am months behind :)

  11. Donna says:

    That is very good advice. I’ll try to remember that. :)

  12. Puppy needs to figure out that he’s a protector!

  13. Lolo says:

    I would love to go next year. Will have to keep you tips in mind!

  14. I didn’t take on anythign additional before Brandcation because I was already bogged down LOL

  15. Toni, you were wise!

    Sheri, hope you get better soon! Did you get any grapefruit seed extract, Lynsey recommended? Peppermint essential oil works well too.

    I am glad the rest of you will take NOT taking on any extra reviews before the next Brandcation, especially if you want to do a good job promoting sponsors and brands supporting Brandcation.

    Jenn, I have heard chickens can be pretty resilient when moving them, so I am glad yours made it through the head “crunch” – ow!
