I'm Supposed To Be...

*Getting things ready for this weekend. Husband and I are going away tomorrow around noon until Sunday afternoon. Friends and coworkers of Husband are coming to babysit! We've never left our kids with anyone but grandparents for that long so I'm nervous. You would think the nerves would spur me on to get organized and ready but no.

*Straightening the house from the fun morning the kids and I had playing. Play ranged from dress up to dinosaurs to splashing in the pool outside. And Campo drooled everywhere and put everything in his mouth. You would the that the fact that my family is coming over for dinner tonight to celebrate my sister's birthday would spur me on to get the house picked up but no.

*Working on an email that I need to send out for the upcoming Beyond Cana retreat. Husband and I are on the retreat planning team and are in charge of organizing efforts to get people to come to the retreat...although as our co-team member reminded us in an email today...God ultimately gets them there! You would think that the fact that we only have 4 couples signed up for the retreat which is in about a month would spur me on to get this email written but no.

Instead, I'm surfing the web, reading blogs and stressing about the fact that I'm not getting anything done and that the clock is ticking on nap time. I don't know why I'm so unmotivated today. Maybe it's because school started this week and I'm super tired. Maybe it's because I have 3 kids ages 4 and under and I feel that the work never ends. Maybe it's because I turned another year older last weekend and my body is so old that it is just giving out on me - lol. Who knows.

Happy belated birthday! I hope it was a good one. I really want to go on a marriage retreat. But I keep having babies and breastfeeding them, making leaving them difficult. Maybe this time next year. Have a good weekend!
