QUOTE OF MY DAY

So, I've been blog stalking today. Kind of in a little bit of a funk. For no known reason...just woke up that way.

Maybe it's cuz I haven't had a full night's sleep in a long time. Spencer's been off and on since our trip to Germany...I know, that was like what? 3/4 months ago? But he's been sick, we've been traveling, teething, blah, blah, blah. Sometimes he does, sometimes he doesn't.

But last night? He slept for 12 hours straight. What?!? Nice, huh? From 8:30 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. Of course, I didn't go to bed til almost midnight, but that's still a long stretch for me. I woke up fully awake at 5:45 a.m. wondering if he was okay. But...I shouldn't have gone back to sleep. I can't believe I'm saying that cuz my thoughts are that any time before 6:00 a.m. is an ungodly hour. But today, I'm more tired that I slept in.

I also have a lot on my To Do List. To Do Lists are overwhelming, don't you think? As efficient as they are supposed to be...you know, writing down everything you have to do so you don't forget...in a way they're a bit depressing. It's a big ol' long proof of how much is on my plate, and I know full well that I don't have time to do any of it. hahaha.

So, instead of doing anything on my To Do List...I blog stalked. That was a CLEARLY good use of my time, don't you think?

Actually, sometimes I really need that down time. Whether it's taking a break in the middle of my day to read a chapter of a good book, or watching a random episode of something recorded on my TV. Or just getting in the car and going to McDonald's to order ONLY a Diet Coke. Those are pick-me-ups...for me, at least.

But I digress....

The whole reason for this post was that when I was blogstalking, I came upon a blog called "Naturally Nina" . Wow. So fun and amazing. I love blogs like this. That are so creative, give tributes to life, yet all they are doing is talking about their own life. Very inspiring. I have a few other blogs bookmarked that I look at every once in awhile. But I'm not "brave" enough to "follow" them.

Anyway, on Tuesday she gave the most beautiful "Quote of the Day". It inspired me to set aside my To Do List, do the chores I "felt" like doing for today, and justfy my waste-of-time blog stalking. Haha. In all seriousness, it was what I needed to hear for today. Please go there and be inspired too.

Thanks for the quote! I needed that. I'm going to copy it and put it on my bathroom mirror. :)
