A procrastinating kind of day

I have been sitting by my dining room table, in front of my computer, for the past 3 hours. I still have not been able to get anything done. I am procrastinating.
Having sick kids during the summer is really making me behind on everything. I like going with the flow, do what I feel like and just pick up afterwards. Usually it works out good, but at the end of the day I am exhausted and nothing gets done.
Today I want to get a to do list together and try to cross as much off of it as possible, but I am Procrastinating.
Instead I am playing with my $96 budget for house projects thinking I might redo my bathroom with new paint, light fixture and shower curtain; redo my dining room with wainscoting, new paint and a counter; or redo my living room with new paint and a new fireplace mantel.
I should probably just get my bathrooms cleaned and floors washed, then bake a banana bread and some muffins.
Or maybe I should take the kids out shopping for clothes and maybe get Isabel a haircut. Get pictures taken of them, something I have not done since last August.
I am getting so annoyed with myself that I am still sitting here doing nothing.
This is it. I will make a list now and I will cross all of it off and next Tuesday I will be in a better place in a cleaner house, but first there is a little girl with a big job for her mama ;)
Thank you all for all your nice comments.
Sofie is doing good after having her ear tubes put in yesterday.

We all have days like that! I think we deserve a day to just be once in awhile..
On days I have no motivation, I just set my timer for 15 minutes and choose 1 thing to do. Usually it feels so good to do something once I get going, that I end up setting the timer again. But if not, at least I can point to those 15 minutes and feel like I got SOMEThing done.
So glad your babies ears are feeling better, I hope you feel more energized and motivated the rest of the week! Blessings to you, we will see you next week, hopefully!

Marianne,
You are still in my prayer. Please know that it is OK to have a not motivated day. I have plenty of those when my emotion is not in balance but God gives grace.
Can't wait to see what you will be posting next Tuesday! I have been working my tail off revising my HMB and an experiment.

Try to give yourself some slack. We all have off days, and you've had a lot on your plate with the girls! It was great to see you again after such a long time! Let's try to coordinate that playgroup for the babies soon!
