It might be the below freezing temperatures, snow and ice we've been experiencing that have frozen my brain, or it might be a late case of the January blahs. But I'm feeling unfocused, unmotivated and probably any other "un" word you can think of. (Though if you are my 5-year-old, no, "underwear," which would be your most favorite word ever, does not count.)
Yep, that's me.
It's one of those days when, despite my best intentions, not much is happening. Sure, I have some beef stew in the crock pot, have washed several loads of laundry, even worked out. But: the papers on the coffee table and kitchen table? Still there, despite telling myself I would sort them out all week. The dishes piled in the sink? Um, yeah, I'll get to them.
I'd much rather curl up on the sofa with a blanket and hibernate.
Funnily enough, I had to wash the pillows on my bed today. I do this about once a year, and it never goes well--the washer never spins them long enough, and I can never figure out how to program the washer to give them extra spin time, and I end up with a sodden mess that takes days to dry out. (Though I do think I may have figured out the extra spin time problem today.) But could I let that random project go today? Oh no. Had to get it done. Go figure.
And now, to save you from the boring life I lead, I offer a random selection of my favorite quotes. There is no common thread running between them; some inspire, some make me laugh. I'm sure you can figure out which is which.
"Insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." - Albert Einstein (I believe I am the perfect embodiment of this quote after the week I've had.)
"The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt." - Bertrand Russell
"You must do the thing you think you cannot do." - Eleanor Roosevelt (Ah, but this week I am tired of doing the thing I think I cannot do.)
"You must be the change you wish to see in the world." - Gandhi
"Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers, 'Grow, grow.'" - The Talmud
Any quotes or other bit of inspiration you might like to share?
