Do you ever have one of those days when you feel like you can't even drum up energy to pick up the toys off the floor? I have been doing so great with my new housekeeping schedule & my early morning routine. I have done so well staying offline from 9 - 9 and focusing on my family and chores. Today is the day where I can't focus on anything. I'm exhausted. I'm distracted. I think I could sit on the couch and not move for hours. Today is the last day of school for the kiddos. They had a 1/2 day and I had big plans of doing something fun, but they're now enjoying a movie. I just can't. I feel bad and feel like a failure, but my husband reminds me "it's okay. You don't have to have everything perfect."
So here's what I'm going to do. The baby is sleeping and the older kids are quietly entertained. I'm going to pray, and then I'm going to close my eyes and hopefully wake up refreshed to finish my responsibilities for the day. I'm also going to thank God for the grace to get up and start over tomorrow.
What do you do to keep on keeping on as a mom? Do you have a secret for grabbing the focus and energy when you need it?
