I can't even think of a cute title, I'm that unmotivated

So, I'm so lazy these days. I just can't find the motivation to get anything done. I kid you not. I wake up at 7:30 or 7:40, get the girls out the door and off to school then bring the boys back home, and that's about it. I usually get a load or two of laundry done. Yesterday I did get the floor vacuumed for the first time in about a week and a half I think.

But that's pretty much the extent of my productivity. My house is just piling up. And I can't find the energy or enthusiasm to do anything about it. Is it just because it's winter do you think?

I'm not even doing a good job of catching up with my blog reading. I'll sit down to the computer and check a couple blogs, leave a few comments, and then it's off to the next little bit of nonsense to not get done. I tell myself that as soon as the boys go down for their nap,then I'm going to get a lot done, but it just doesn't happen. I'll get my shower in, and then--nada. A snack, computer for a few minutes, and then--they're awake and I didn't get a ding dang dong thing done.
Could somebody please send me some sort of something to take care of this little problem? Oh, I think that's called meth, and it's illegal in all 50 states. Oh well.
On a brighter note, isn't this little guy adorable?
My sweet friend PM made him for me and sent him to me for a birthday present. I keep calling it a him, but I think I'm going to name him Penelope.

He makes me smile everytime I look at him ...'er... her.

Hey, thanks for all the awesome comments on yesterday's post. I enjoyed reading every single one of them. I didn't realize that Dtv touched off a nerve in so many other people too. LOL

Happy Feet is in the house. So very cute. Interesting about the tv thing. Cool comments Mikki.

Hope you get that motivation you need. Just look at at Kristina above. She is wearing a snuggie and still doing the treadmill. That is motivating to me :)

I also hear that kids ADD meds work for that too! Just kidding! Did you ever see that Desperate Housewives episode?
I'm feeling the same way though. I see all these things that need to be done and I want to do it, but never quite get there. I hope it is just the season.

It's probably just the winter blahs, but I get that way when my thyroid levels are off. (I have hypo-thyroid-ism) So if it's really that bad you might want to have that checked. Two weeks on Synthryoid and I was a totally different woman! Seriously.
Other than that I feel for you, cause if your hubby is anything like mine, that aint helpin.

I think that I am suffering from adult onset of ADD/ADHD. I am having a hard time getting anything done...except blogging.

I always have a hard time getting anything done in the winter, but once it warms up I'm fine. Hopefully you get motivation soon!:)

As you can tell from my last post I'm right there with ya! It seems like I don't get squat done. The low energy thing isn't helping much either. When does the energy come back anyway? Does it ever??? Oh man...I hope so! The days are just flying right out from under me and so many projects are left undone. I feel like I'm doing good to get a shower and teeth brushed before dinner!!! I'm just glad I'm not the only one who feels like this.

BTW, thanks for your comment. I was very sad when my boys outgrew the stroller. Even when they were screaming in it, they were at least contained!!! Now I have to rely on the leashes and they are WONDERFUL!!! The boys actually love them because they think they are toys :)
