I’m gonna be totally honest. I almost skipped today. I know, it’s the first day of MY self-induced challenge?! Why would I even think about doing that? The F word. Motha F-ing FATIGUE!!!
I slept like crap last night and woke up early. The kids started online Summer School today and man, these teachers have got it figured out now! They both had “class meetings” with over 40 kids on at a time! By noon, I was really hoping I could take a nap but I couldn’t because they had school work to do and both had other Zooms at 2pm.
So at 2:01, I looked at the list and found a task that I thought would take me roughly 5 minutes and it did! I decided to clean up the drawer in the bathroom where we keep our hair stuff- hair ties, hair brushes, combs, bobby pins, fancy hair pieces are all just thrown in there. It’s a mess. It hasn’t always been such a mess but my daughter has just discovered “doing hair” and so she rummages around a lot in there now too.
(I also realized that I might need to get creative in organizing around the house since I am not leaving at this time do to quarantine. Normally, I’d use it as an excuse to go to the dollar store to get cute little bins and trays.)
I gathered all the hair stuff (bobby pins, hair ties) and put them in a pink zippered bag I had laying around. I gathered all the “fancy” hair stuff (barrettes, sparkly bobby pins) and put it in a black zippered pouch. I threw out a bunch of combs and bobby pins that were past their prime and kept everything else in the basket that we have in the drawer to keep it organized – term used very loosely since we obviously haven’t been.
I feel better that it’s slightly less chaotic and that I followed through.
I’m going to take a nap now.
