Monday Motivation or Lack Thereof


I have actually lacked motivation lately, thus the infrequent posting, that and the fact I have been extremely tired. Nope not pregnant, just lacking sleep! My brain doesn’t function well with little sleep. The two paper routes are killing me but I said I would give it two months and I still have a couple weeks left. Plus, it has been a long winter making the driving time so much longer than it should be.

What’s Motivating Me?

This past weekend was extremely busy for us with Liberty Day (I was solo with the younger four) and a CSA (Consumer Supported Agriculture) Expo for our farm. I have follow up to do from the expo, plus our farm newsletter. We have to pick up 120 meat chicks and 150 young laying hens on Thursday or I should say my husband and son will be doing that task. Friday we are picking up a pair of White Chinese geese that were given to us, plus our children have piano here at our home. Saturday we have a green market for the farm….let’s just say it’s farm week!

In addition to the farm stuff, I have blogging stuff due and overdue, plus I want to start getting ahead on blog posts in preparation for spring planting, etc. I get tired and overwhelmed just thinking about it all. Ever feel that way?

What’s motivating you this week?

    I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment, too. I’ve been swamped with real life stuff, behind on my blog, and going out of town this Thursday through next Monday, and just don’t know how I’m going to get everything done. Sigh. I need some motivation! :)

  2. Wow you have a lot of stuff going on; makes me feel like a big, fat loser. Which that’s what really is motivating me. I don’t want to be that. I want to be someone my kids can be proud of like I was of my mom.

  3. I’ve been sick and not motivated at all! But I do have pots that are due, so that’s motivating me to do them..

    I was up through the night not feeling well so I am slow today. I am thinking get the work I need to get done and try and relax and watch some tv for the afternoon :-)!

  5. Angela says:

    I have some great projects I’m working on. They keep me motivated.

  6. Liz Mays says:

    I feel like that a lot lately, and the sad thing is that when I get stressed, I take naps and get further behind. lol

  7. Kathleen B says:

    I’ve been in the same place myself for a while now. It seems there is so much to do I don’t know where to start.

  8. I’ve been swamped lately and in a funk, and so far nothing has motivated me.

  9. Mickey says:

    I know that feeling! And it’s so gloomy here today that it’s not helping matters. Those paper routes would probably kill me.

  10. I wish we were closer so we could get our eggs from you! It’s been a HARD winter. Hopefully it’s almost over!

  11. I’ve been motivated in work, but notsomuch in exercising.

  12. Wow you are going to have a lot of new animals around the farm.
