Tonight is a pep talk kind of a night. One of those nights that I would love nothing more than to doze off on the couch by the warm fire.
I am stuck in relax mode. I have failed on several counts to revert to mom mode. I was quick to let the girls rent The Grinch because I knew it would keep them quietly occupied. I ordered pizza for dinner so that I didn't have to cook. I have enjoyed the easy distraction of my computer.
But my leisure must come to an end. I can't put off reality any longer. There are things that need to be done. Two little girls need help finishing their book reports. The dogs need to be fed. Laundry needs to be folded. The mud-room floor needs to be found. The dishwasher needs to be unloaded. The rest of the mundane list isn't worth mentioning. Nevertheless, it must be done.
Just thinking about it makes my head hurt. I know once I start, it won't be as bad as what I have premised in my mind. Or maybe it will. Either way, I'll feel better once I'm done. So back to mom mode I go. But it's gonna take some good music to keep me there.
