I wish I was one of those people that when they have a mountain of a to-do list they get up in the morning, make themselves a steaming cup of coffee, clap their hands and say, "okay, boys, let's get to work. What are we going to accomplish today?" and then they dig in. And they work and they work and they work and they get done what they can do and when they put it down at the end of the day, or even for just an hour, because you have to put it down at some point, they are fully engaged with whatever else they are doing: making dinner, playing with their kids, talking to their husbands. And when it's time to pick it up again they clap their hands once more and get down to work.
I wish I was one of those people.
I'm one of these people:
When I have a mountain of a to-do list I fling myself around dramatically, kind of like a fish out of water, flopping myself further and further inland all the while gasping frantically for air. Life feels bleak, like really really bleak, and suddenly that fish yells out - I just want this life to be over. No really, I WANT TO DIE!
(in front of her baby fish.)
(no really, THAT happened.)
(to which, Hutty, fish #2, responded, you can't die, mommy, you're my buddy!)
(and Collin gave me a look like, really? Really, Bender? In front of the Baby Fish??)
And I know, I KNOW! if I sat down for a minute, got my bearings, and used that energy to flop my way back to the lake, I'd be able to breath again in no time.
And yet, flop, flop, flop.
Right now I need some happy. A Baby with his first maraca is happy. What do you have? Give me some happy here today. And Happy Weekend, y'all!
