I’m fresh out, of motivation that is. I definitely have stuff I should be doing; finishing the Little Nut Hat pattern, writing other new patterns, cleaning my house… but somehow I am completely without motivation.
Only time can fix this problem, I think. Do you have any sure fire motivators? Do you just do it? Or do you find yourself at a slump like this and just let things work themselves out?
I’m attributing my lack of ummph on a lack of solid sleep and not exercising. The first I can’t really solve until my daughter decides to sleep through the night again; I think she’s growth spurting. The second problem gets remedied today since I start working out with my husband today after a two week sabbatical. A few years ago I injured my shoulder in some unknown way and two weeks ago I finally went to the orthopedic doctor who said I had bursitis with impingement. One cortisone shot in the shoulder and two weeks later I feel confident enough to start heavy exercise again. Here’s hoping for smooth sailing in the shoulder department!
Please share your slump breakers. I need all the help I can get!
Hey Guys. Just wanted to share the cutest plates I found the other day in the dollar section of Target.
I am a sucker for divided plates. I secretly, ok, not so secretly, hate my food touching. While my son doesn’t seem to have this problem divided plates are too cute to pass up, especially these! Like I said I found them in the Target dollar bins and there were only four different designs so I scooped them up! Love!
I thought they were pretty adorable. My son has been on a HUGE Halloween kick this year so these just add to the atmosphere of non stop Halloween discussions. Between spiders, pumpkins and Halloween being screamed all the time I could use a little cute to go along with it.
Have you found any cute treasures lately? Do share!
Today I am bringing you what I hope is my next written pattern. The Little Nut Hat is a cute little fall hat, acorn style. My first knitted pattern, it will feature seed stitch and stockinette. It should have all sizes from 0-3 months to adult. Pattern is being written as I can. This first version may be altered but this should give you an idea of what I’m going for. Hope you like 🙂
What are you working on? Please share or link up in the comments below!
How on Earth do kids come up with some of the stuff they say? Here are a few snippets of conversations that happened in my house today:
Me: Jason, what would you like to drink with lunch? Juice or water?
Jason: …. COKE!
Me: *sigh* Juice or water?…
Jason: *completely crestfallen* Juice…
I probably should have seen this coming as yesterday Jason stole his Daddy’s soda can and proceeded to guzzle the Diet Pepsi with reckless abandon. Note to self: HIDE THE COKE! LOL
Jason also surprised me today with this:
Jason: Mommy…. Mommy…. Mommy!
Me: Yes Jason?
Jason: Love you!
Did your littles do or say anything surprising or funny today?
