I feel productive. Even if I’m not. The last few days have been filled with the mind-numbing increasingly irritating errands that have to be done. It’s amazing how little task become grand undertakings just by adding a baby. (Though I guess technically she isn’t a baby, she’s a toddler… where do these words come from.) Anyway long story short, going to the grocery store is about all that was accomplished yesterday.

I did finally get some hoops to hang on the wall with my favorite fabrics, and I’m really loving the one I hung up in the computer room, the one in the dining room… not so much. I guess because instead of a fabric I loooove, I chose one I thought would match. (Didn’t I just write about not matching? *head slap*) Bah hopefully it will grow on me.

And my soap making looks like it may never happen. Since Joann’s (chain crafty place) idea of soap making supplies seems to be limited to giant bars of soap you melt and pour into overpriced plastic trays. That’s right you too can turn big soap into little soaps. Dangit where is the lye! I even checked Kroger but probably wasn’t looking in the correct place, and since I had made the same mistake of going on SENIOR DISCOUNT DAY, (Da Da Duuuummmm) I really just needed to get out of there, and fast.

But to sum it up I say I “feel” productive because here it is the end of the day, and the house is trashed. Dishes in the sink, toys on the floor, dirty clothes strewn about (Thanks stripper N!) and it really doesn’t matter. I can tidy quickly before FIL arrives Friday, and then go back to my lazy day to day. With the main focus on finding a day to day rhythm that leaves me happy and healthy … oh and the dogs fed.
